O.N. BECK PROVES AN ABSORBING ACQUISITION FOR DRYING SPECIALIST SECOMAK

Process drying specialist Secomak has acquired O. N. Beck Ltd, a key innovator in process drying for the food and beverage industries.O. N. Beck's recently patented de-watering system uses sonic velocity compressed air in a specific way that atomises water from cans, bottles and jars. This prevents, for example, shrink-wrap covers from wrinkling because containers are still wet, or crown caps from rusting - both common reasons for rejection by customers.

This de-watering system complements perfectly Secomak's existing range of air knives, air cannons, high velocity blowers and heat-shrinking equipment. The acquisition means Secomak now provides a one-stop-solution for all process drying-related problems.

Commenting on the acquisition Clifford Beck, O. N. Beck's Managing Director, said, "We are very excited about this change and believe it will bring new innovation opportunities not only to ourselves and Secomak, but also to Secomak's customers around the world."

Founded in 1902 as an engineering business, O. N. Beck has diversified its product range over the years to produce equipment for applications including ventilation, extraction and cooling. Its de-watering products are already proving extremely successful, so with the addition of Secomak's sales support and extensive network of distributors, the technology is sure to benefit a growing number of customers both in the UK and worldwide.
