February 14, 2019

CPM Holdings Inc. (CPM), a leading supplier of process equipment and technology to the animal feed, oilseed, food, and engineered materials industries, has acquired D&G Electrical Engineering Ltd, based in Accrington. 

Founded in 1994, D&G is a leading supplier of niche controls and commissioning services for the metal packaging, food, and nuclear industries. 

D&G will be part of CPM’s control and automation group, Beta Raven, and will relocate to CPM’s new Greenbank Technology campus in nearby Blackburn. D&G and Beta Raven will leverage their respective technologies and products into a global control and automation platform. The move will also enhance controls and service integration into Greenbank and other CPM process equipment offered throughout Europe.

Former owners Duncan Whitaker and Graham Miller will continue to serve D&G in leadership and management roles. 

“Our business partner relationship spans over 10 years with CPM,” Miller said. “As we merge into a trans-Atlantic partnership, our leading control solutions will complement CPM’s own technologies and automation solutions with Beta Raven.” 

CPM president Ted Waitman added, “With D&G, we will continue the synthesis of equipment, machine control and automation to drive new possibilities in smart controls, process optimization, and profitability of our customer base.”

Headquartered in Waterloo, IA, CPM is a leading supplier of process equipment and systems serving commodity and value-adding producers around the world. CPM has more than 1000 employees and markets its machinery and aftermarket solutions through 26 global locations in the Americas, Europe, and Asia.
