UK oven manufacturer Double D Food Engineering has been acquired by US food processing equipment supplier JBT Food- Tech, for an undisclosed sum.

JBT FoodTech’s European head office is based in Helsing-borg, Sweden, but all Double D products will continue to be designed and manufactured at the com-pany’s factory in Broxburn, just outside Edinburgh.

Double D’s MD Bob Petrie said: “The senior management team will remain in place, as will all current contacts for sales, service, spare parts and after-market activities. The acquisition allows us to further broaden
our horizons across the world.”
