Food processing equipment provider Marlen International has entered into a partnership with Quendal FoodTech Machinery to represent Marlen thermal processing equipment in Mexico, including its custom-built batch ovens, blast chill cells, and industrial dehydrators, the Riverside, MO company announced Thursday.

“We are excited to represent Marlen’s thermal processing solutions in Mexico and are looking forward to opening new doors in the industrial meat processing space,” said Jose Luis Malagon, owner of Quendel, in a Marlen press release.

Based in Monterrey, Mexico, Quendel provides food processing equipment to Latin American markets. The company’s team has served Mexican meat processors since 1987 with engineering, sales, service, and manufacturing capabilities.

“We are looking forward to this expanded partnership to grow our market share internationally in the thermal processing space. The unique relationship we have with Quendal allows us to execute on Latin American opportunities for thermal sales, service, and parts in a market where we’ve sold only food processing equipment in the past,” a statement by Marlen’s president Bob Campbell stated. “In order to enter the market in Mexico at a time when there is rapid growth in meat products, we knew it was important to collaborate with an equipment manufacturer like Quendal who understands the needs of meat processors while maintaining the competency to assess, design, and build quality equipment.”

Marlen, a subsidiary of Downers Grove, IL-headquartered Duravant Company, said its thermal processing solutions have witnessed significant growth in the United States and is working to expand the category overseas.
