Duravant LLC, a global engineered equipment and automation solutions provider for the food processing, packaging, and material handling sectors, has acquired National Presort LP (NPI), a leading manufacturer of automated parcel sortation systems headquartered in Fort Worth, TX.

NPI has served e-commerce, courier, parcel post, warehouse, and fulfillment operations with advanced turnkey equipment solutions designed to increase throughput, improve accuracy, and reduce fulfillment time for more than 45 years.

“We are excited to welcome NPI to Duravant,” said Mike Kachmer, chairman and CEO of Duravant. “The addition of their unique sortation technology to our material handling portfolio complements our strong position in e-commerce and distribution centers and greatly extends our reach with parcel and courier customers.”

NPI manufactures high-speed sortation systems that are modular and configured to customers’ specific application needs. The company’s highly differentiated sorting equipment features a sliding shoe and slat design and is engineered to gently and precisely sort flats, poly bags, boxes, irregularly shaped parcels, and mixed mail at speeds of up to 24,000 pieces per hour. NPI’s software and service offerings further optimize productivity of the entire fulfillment line.

“NPI has experienced tremendous growth, and now our partnership with Duravant greatly enhances our ability to deliver even more value-added solutions to our expanding customer base,” said Brent Daboub, president of NPI. “We’re excited to leverage new resources available to us and collaborate with our colleagues at FMH Conveyors and other Duravant operating companies.”

NPI has two manufacturing sites in the US and a nationwide fleet of service technicians.
