RELCO acquires Stoelting Process Solutions product line of cheesemaking equipment

By RELCO

RELCO'S President, Loren Corle, announces the acquisition of the Kiel, Wis.-based product line. The Process Solutions division designs and manufactures a full line of cheese making equipment. It has a long history of providing high quality cheese vats, curd tables, block formers, draining and matting conveyors, as well as salting belts.

The product line directly integrates with RELCO’s existing cheese plant products which include, milk receiving and storage, pasteurization/standardization, cheese plant automation, and whey processing systems. Corle said, “The acquisition allows RELCO to expand our offering of equipment to the cheese processing industry providing a total turnkey package from milk receiving through whey processing including automation and installation.”

Customers should see a seamless transition as key Sales, Engineering, Service and Design employees have been retained by RELCO. Corle also said, “All existing orders, projects and customers commitments will be honored and completed as previously agreed to.” Manufacturing will continue at the Kiel facility for a period of time before making a transition to RELCO’s fabrication shop in Willmar, Minn.

RELCO has been a strategic partner with Stoelting since 2008, selling and distributing cheese making equipment. The Stoelting brand name will be retained and sold globally through its three offices; Willmar, Minn., in the United States, Drachten in The Netherlands, and Auckland in New Zealand. Prior to the acquisition, RELCO’s product offerings included; L-TECH lactose, permeate and whey powder drying systems, RELCO powder handling systems and equipment, RELCO evaporators and spray driers, RELCO Optimizer-liquid blending system, RelTronix Automation for process equipment and process systems, sales and service for Technopak packaging systems, as well as other process systems and equipment for dairy and food plants.
