Sturtevant Inc. has acquired the assets of FCM Mill Systems LLC.

Sturtevant Inc. has acquired the assets of FCM Mill Systems LLC, a privately held powder processing systems company based in Lombard, IL.

FCM Mill Systems specializes in manufacturing air classifier mills for the milling of pharmaceuticals, nutritional additives, food ingredients, dairy powders, minerals, and chemicals.

“I am excited about increasing our product offerings with the FCM Mill and working with Tomas Johansson, the inventor of the FCM mill, to grow his reputation for manufacturing outstanding equipment and service,” said W. Sturtevant English, CEO of Sturtevant Inc.

With many machines already successfully installed and operating in the U.S., under the FCM Mill brand, Sturtevant will continue to enhance the line’s highly respected status under the Sturtevant brand. Sturtevant will be manufacturing the Sturtevant FCM mill in the Lombard, IL-based facility, and will be selling and supporting it globally, through its established network of sales representatives.

“It was time in FCM’s strategic plan to consider outside options on how to most effectively grow the classifier mill business and ensure the product’s legacy,” said Tomas Johansson, director of Sturtevant FCM Mills. “With its established leadership position in the industry, Sturtevant is uniquely suited to position the FCM mill for long-term success and growth on a global scale, I’m excited to be an integral part of the next chapter.”

The Sturtevant FCM mill excels in a variety of applications that include pharmaceutical and food products such as excipients, lactose, caseins, sugar, starches, cocoa, wheat gluten, and other food and nutritional additives and colorings. It is also advantageous for processors of minerals, silica, alumina, pigments, powder coatings, and chemical products as activated carbon and sodium bicarbonate.

Sturtevant Inc. is a leading family-owned manufacturer of material processing equipment, including its patented Micronizer jet mill that produces sub-micron sized particles, FCM (fine classifier mill), an air-swept impact mill with integral classifier, Simpactor and Infestroyer, centrifugal, pin-type mills, and three types of high-performance air classifiers that separate fine and coarse particles with precision and accuracy.
