Dear esteemed business relation,

We can proudly announce that Remie Food Processing Equipment bv., and SGL Technology bvba, after years of successful collaboration, have reached agreement on a merger between both parties effective as of 1-1-2009.
It is hereby agreed that SGL shall outsource the majority of the mechanical activities including frame construction, piping, the mechanical aspect of the machine building, installation and maintenance work to Remie Food & Processing Equipment bv. (www.remie-fpe.nlnew website is live as from 1-1-2009)

Remie Food & Processing Equipment bv. has a completely new 3,000 m2 large workshop with travelling cranes and completely up-to-date processing machines. They also install the in-house manufactured machines, piping, platforms, etc., professionally and under own supervision at the customer.

SGL Technology bvba, with its years of experience in the chocolate and biscuit industry, hopes that this collaboration will allow it to be even more targeted and more efficient in its focus on design, engineering, innovation, process development, project assistance and sales. The time that this frees up shall be devoted to these activities, allowing us to cater better and faster to the growing market for customized flexible solutions for the rapidly expanding and changing products in the food industry.

And last but not least, this merger will also enable us to offer an even more complete total solution to our customers – from design, build and transport up to the installation and overseeing. The end result is that SGL can assure the customer that just one party will be responsible for the project from the beginning through to the end, which will leave the customer free to concentrate on its other affairs.
