The addition of A&B’s processing capabilities and technologies, along with JBT’s recently completed acquisition of Stork Food & Dairy Systems, greatly strengthens JBT’s liquid foods portfolio and its ability to provide complete solutions to customers.

A&B also brings a large field service operation that will strengthen JBT’s installation and aftermarket business. At the same time, JBT will leverage its global sales network to expand the geographic reach of A&B’s portfolio, which is currently limited to the US and Canada.
