Machinery supplier Krones has completed the acquisition of food and beverage processing equipment manufacturer W.M. Sprinkman Corporation.

Founded in 1929 and with revenues of around $35 million last year, the US-based firm specialises in the dairy and brewing industries, with its customer base ranging from start-up microbreweries to large multinational producers.

By acquiring Sprinkman, Krones and its other recent acquisitions are said to be adding to the German business’ ‘House of Krones’ product portfolio in North America, ranging from process technology solutions and bottling and packaging equipment to IT solutions, plastics recycling and lifecycle service support.

Sprinkman’s headquarters and production will remain in the state of Wisconsin.
