Expansion Bettcher aquires Cantrell
With this acquisition, Bettcher Industries expands its presence in the poultry industry, including the ability to offer a wider range of equipment and system solutions to processors.
In the nearly 50 years since its founding in 1972, Cantrell has earned a reputation for designing and delivering quality products and parts that meet the needs of the poultry processing industry. Among the products the company manufactures are evisceration and picking equipment, second processing equipment, wing segmenters, vacuum systems, and spare parts. Cantrell sells its products to leading poultry processors in the United States, Canada, and Latin America.
One of those companion businesses, Gainco, Inc., is a major provider of solutions to optimize yields in poultry and meat processing plants, with offerings that include weighing, inspection, trimming, and deboning applications. Like Cantrell, Gainco is headquartered in Gainesville, Ga. This close proximity will facilitate shared collaboration in developing new products and solutions for customers.
Established in 1944, Bettcher Industries, Inc. is an ISO 9001:2015-certified, vertically integrated manufacturing corporation with a worldwide customer base. The company brings 75 years of successful innovation to the market as a leading developer and maker of equipment for food processing, foodservice, medical, and other industry segments.
