FPS Food Process Solutions (FPS), a global leader in freezing and cooling equipment, has acquired GEM Equipment of Oregon. This acquisition allows FPS to diversify its product offering to include GEM Equipment’s well-known fryers and blanchers.

“This acquisition provides additional value to existing and new customers.

With GEM Equipment, our enhanced product portfolio provides customers confidence in making FPS their partner of choice for all their food processing needs,” stated Jeffrey Chang, president, FPS Food Process Solutions.

FPS and GEM Equipment both provide processing equipment for potato processors: FPS for freezing and GEM Equipment for blanching and frying. FPS and GEM Equipment together can now offer food processors a wider range of solutions, starting with custom-built end-to-end French fry and specialty potato lines from blanching to freezing.

“As part of the acquisition, GEM Equipment will have access to new global markets and a wider, more diverse range of products and industry sectors,” said Chris Imdieke, CEO, GEM Equipment of Oregon.
