The agreement is an opportunity for the companies to combine their expertise, resources and experiences, the companies said.
“The new partnership between Bratney Companies and Omas Industries creates an ideal combination of synergies,” said Luigi Nalon, chief executive officer of Omas Industries. “Together we will continue to provide quality equipment, engineering and installation services to our customers. This partnership will bring cost effective and unique services to the grain industry.”
Founded in 1966, Omas is a well-known equipment manufacturer within the flour, maize and rice mill industries. Located in Padova, Italy, Omas systems are sold and installed throughout the world. The company’s equipment includes the Leonardo Roller Mill, which features variability in the roll differential and may reduce energy consumption by up to 70%.
“This new alliance provides a tremendous opportunity to combine Omas’ revolutionary technology with Bratney’s industry-leading engineering, construction and service technicians,” said Peter Bratney, president of Bratney Companies. “This further reinforces Bratney’s reputation as a market leader in new and innovative solutions. I anticipate this partnership will bring great value to our customers in the U.S. and Canada.”
