Coperion announces rebranding of Schenck Process FPM following acquisition

Following its acquisition by Hillenbrand in September 2023, Schenck Process Food and Performance Materials (FPM) is set to undergo another transformation, officially adopting the name and brand of its parent company, Coperion, effective 1 August 2024. Coperion, an operating entity of Hillenbrand with 140 years of experience across processing industries globally, sees this transition as a pivotal step in its expansion strategy. Schenck Process FPM has played a vital role within Coperion, contributing to divisions specialising in processing solutions for polymers/performance materials, food, health & nutrition, and aftermarket sales & services. The core elements of Schenck Process FPM, including its workforce and manufacturing facilities, test and innovation centres, and technologies, will remain intact. Flagship brands under its umbrella, such as RBS, Stock, Baker Perkins, Kemutec and Mucon, will continue to be operational. Ulrich Bartel, president of Coperion, said: “The acquisition of Schenck Process FPM in 2023 has been an essential step for the development of Coperion toward a more diversified company and an expanded footprint. With the transition of the FPM brand name under Coperion, we take the next step in our journey.” Matthew Craig, vice president and general manager of Schenck Process FPM, added: “Aligning more closely with Coperion reflects a significant opportunity for us to combine our strengths and offer customers access to a broader portfolio of solutions, technologies and services. This wider range of complementary technologies and increased scale makes us even more capable of delivering value.” The rebranding initiative extends to the digital domain, with the current website schenckprocessfpm.com making way for coperion.com. Correspondences, including emails from technology brands like Baker Perkins, will also reflect the new name.
