UZWIL, SWITZERLAND — The Buhler Technology Group announced on May 3 that it acquired the Oldenzaal, the Netherlands-based Tijdhof Persmatrijzen effective at the end of April 2011.

This manufacturer of dies and rollers for feed pellet mills will be integrated in the feed & biomass business unit. The acquisition allows Buhler to strengthen its customer service and to enlarge its customer base.

Tijdhof Persmatrijzen, which was set up 30 years ago, specializes in the manufacture of high-grade pelleting dies and rollers, which it supplies to the animal feed and biomass industries worldwide. The family-owned company, which boasts cutting-edge production equipment and operates its own vacuum hardening shop, will be integrated in feed & biomass business units of Buhler (grain processing division).
