By Ben Bouckley+


Krones has bought homogenizer and reciprocating pump producer HST Maschienbau, and says the deal fits its plans to upgrade its capabilities in juice and milk production.

The beverage filling and company has acquired 100% of the company's stock for a 'mid-single-figure million range' sum, although the deal is still subject to antitrust approvals.

"With this strategic decision, Krones is planning to upgrade its future corporate capabilities in the field of process technology, designed for producing juices and milk, and to expand its global service and maintenance business in this sector," the company said.
