A.T.S. Engineering provides innovative solutions for dairy processors in hard and plastic packaging. Founded in 1994, the company specializes in high-quality filling machines, sealers and overcappers. Founder Anthony Subryan parlayed his experience in redesigning and modifying filling machines into manufacturing new equipment that’s in high demand. Growth prompted a move to new quarters in suburban Toronto. A.T.S. continues to redesign existing equipment while offering its “jewel in the crown” — custom-made rotary and in-line fillers for various dairy foods including cottage cheese, sour cream, yogurt and ice cream.

Dairy Conveyor Corp. was formed in 1954 by Gustaf Freudenberg, Fred Muhlenbruch and Paul Ganswind to serve the conveyor repair needs of dairy processors in the regional New York metropolitan market. The original partners retired in 1968 and the business was sold to five employees — Carl Huttman, Karl Kleinschrod, Roland Debald, Walter Freudenberg (Gustaf’s son) and Adolph Stumpf. The business grew and expanded internationally to supply new conveyor components, systems and automatic equipment. The company continues to thrive today and is bigger than ever under the leadership of Karl Kleinschrod and Roland Debald.
