ProMach, a Cincinnati-based provider of packaging machinery solutions, said it acquired Statco-DSI Process Systems, a provider of integrated sanitary processing systems and engineering services for the food, dairy and beverage industries. The addition of Statco-DSI expands ProMach’s systems and integration capabilities for food and beverage processing, enhancing ProMach’s capacity to provide complete turnkey systems along any part of the production line.

Founded in 1982 and headquartered in Huntington Beach, Calif., Statco-DSI is a process equipment distributor and systems integrator for the sanitary processing market. Statco-DSI provides an extensive portfolio of equipment, systems and services to provide start-to-finish support. Statco-DSI brings local support to customers with 10 offices across the United States, ProMach said.

“Our acquisition of Statco-DSI significantly expands our capacity to partner with our North American customer base in a very meaningful way,” said Mark Anderson, ProMach president and CEO. “Statco-DSI brings ProMach further upstream on the production line into the processing technology side of the business, giving us the ability to help customers from processing to packaging increase their efficiencies, streamline their operations and continue bringing essential products to the marketplace."

In addition to systems integration and engineering services, Statco-DSI designs and manufactures a comprehensive portfolio of sanitary equipment and provides custom design/build services for complete greenfield facilities, line retrofits and plant modifications. Additionally, Statco-DSI represents numerous processing and packaging equipment manufacturers and takes responsibility for the installation and support of these systems in the field, ProMach said.

David Statham, CEO of Statco-DSI, along with Eric Perkins, president of Statco-DSI, will join ProMach along with the entire Statco-DSI team of over 185 employees. ProMach said it will continue to invest in Statco-DSI’s operations across all locations to support their continued growth with new and existing customers across all markets.

“This is a very exciting time in the history of Statco-DSI,” said Statham. “By joining forces with a respected packaging leader like ProMach, we will be able to accelerate our business even further and bring substantial benefits to our customers. ProMach shares the same vision we do for how to grow and strengthen our relationships in the marketplace, and Eric and I are looking forward to continuing this amazing journey that my dad started so long ago.”
