JBT Corporation, a global technology solutions provider to high-value segments of the food and beverage industry, has purchased Avure Technologies, a leading provider of high pressure processing (HPP) systems, for $57 million. Privately held Avure is based in the US.

“As part of JBT, Avure will benefit from our global salesforce, service support and extensive customer relationships, as well as our commitment to developing solutions that maximize customer profitability,” says Tom Giacomini, JBT’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.
