Following Marel’s recent acquisition of the mixing and grinding activities of Carnitech, Marel GB will now provide, in the UK & Ireland, full sales, service and spares for the range of mixers and grinders for the meat, fish and poultry industries.

Marel has re-employed some 35 staff at the former Carnitech factory in Denmark. The factory will re-open as a ‘fully fledged’ Marel product centre specialising in mixing and grinding technology, machines and systems.

Carnitech was owned by the American Industrial Acquisition Corporation (AIAC) a privately held industrial group, which acquired it from Marel in 2010. The return of Carnitech's range of mixers and grinders to Marel has added mixing and grinding to the company's range of forming and portioning machines.

The deal will ensure continuity of service for the machines already in action. “The acquisition of Carnitech mixers and grinders means that Marel will take on the responsibility for spare parts and a high standard of service for UK processors many of whom are well known to us and I can assure them of our 100% commitment to doing just that,​” says Graeme Rolinson, general manager of Marel GB.
