Alfa Laval has acquired Sandymount – a US-based beverage technology company with a unique and patented membrane technology to concentrate beer.
The Swedish company, which deals with heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling, will help to open up new business opportunities for Sandymount, and enable a more sustainable beer-delivery supply chain.
“Sandymount’s patented membrane technology, Revos, in combination with Alfa Laval’s extensive product range for beer production, will enable beer producers to deliver high-quality beer in concentrated form,” a press release said.
This solution will help to address the issues surrounding the transportation of beer supply.
“This new technology is a valuable complement to Alfa Laval’s portfolio of brewery solutions which will enable us to deliver processes for high-quality concentrated beer,” said Nish Patel, president of the Food & Water Division.
“Innovative and validated solutions like this will improve our customers’ supply chains and thereby have a positive impact on both their bottom line and the environment.”
Ronan McGovern, founder of Sandymount, added: “The Revos technology has been verified and validated by major breweries and I am excited to see it become part of Alfa Laval and leverage the organisation’s experience and global footprint in solution delivery”.
The newly acquired company, with its founder and employees, will be integrated into the Business unit Food Systems in the Food & Water Division.
