FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ingredient process automation companies Shick Solutions, Kansas City, MO, and Esteve Process, Rians, France, in August announced their intent to become one global entity, Shick Esteve.
After Breteche Industrie Group acquired Shick Solutions in June of 2016, the companies have been working towards a combined business strategy. The two operations centers employ a combined 280 individuals and encompasses more than 285,000ft2 of office and manufacturing space.
“Since being acquired by Breteche we have maintained the same customer-focused culture as we have always had,” said Tim Cook, previously Shick Solutions’ President, now Shick Esteve President and CEO. “This merger is an extension of that and will give us additional capability in serving our customers”
Cook is a member of the Breteche management team along with the leaders of other Breteche companies.
The integration allows Shick Esteve to serve the industry with a broader reach of resources and additional technologies from a network of global service centers. Combined efforts will increase research and development bringing higher levels of technology to the market.
In the coming months, customers will see new branding featuring the Shick Esteve logo as well as updates to websites and communication channels.
