SensoryEffects Acquires Dietrich's Specialty Processing
SensoryEffects Powder Systems, a Defiance, Ohio, developer and manufacturer of specialty powdered food ingredients and turnkey food products, will acquire the assets of Dietrich’s Specialty Processing, a Reading, Pa., provider of high-quality, customized spray drying services. Dietrich’s has state-of-the art processing and control capabilities, including tall form dryers, evaporators and liquid and powder handling equipment.
Charles Nicolais, president and CEO of SensoryEffects says, “This acquisition furthers our ability to deliver customized food and beverage ingredients and products by expanding our capabilities and capacity. SensoryEffects will now possess specialty spray drying capabilities across three production sites: Defiance, Ohio; Bridgeton, Mo.; and now Reading, Pa. With the growing demand for value-added powder systems, we now have multiple processing options to choose from when solving our customer’s problems. In addition, with the dairy handling capabilities of the Dietrich plant, we will be able to customize new dairy-based ingredient solutions for our customers in the health and wellness category.”
The site will be integrated into the SensoryEffects Powder Systems business while maintaining the existing management team, to facilitate a seamless transition and set the stage for continued growth, the company reports.
