July 29, 2013 - SPX Corporation today announced that its Flow Technology segment has been awarded a contract valued at nearly $40 million by a leading global infant nutrition company to supply a powdered infant formula processing plant in Germany.
The plant will utilize SPX Flow Technology process systems to convert milk and other ingredients into high quality powdered infant formula, primarily for export into emerging markets.
"A growing world population and expanding middle class is driving demand for high quality powdered infant formula, particularly in China and other emerging markets such as the Middle East," said Ross Skelton, VP of Global Commercial Operations for SPX Flow Technology. "This is a significant win for SPX, and further demonstrates the trust customers have with the quality and performance of our process equipment and our deep expertise in both liquid and powder dairy process systems."
With global dairy consumption on the rise, SPX is helping dairy producers expand capacity and deliver safe, high-quality products.
"Our broad range of equipment along with our engineering and project management capabilities enable SPX to design and deliver advanced, automated and energy efficient end-to-end dairy production facilities," added Skelton. "This contract award further validates the strategic food and beverage process technology acquisitions we've made in recent years. The system will utilize equipment from our APV and Anhydro technologies and will be supported by our engineering teams in Europe."
