Rice Lake Weighing Systems’ Arnhem-based European division, Rice Lake Weighing Systems Europe B.V., has acquired the Dutch belt-scale manufacturer Master Engineering, of nearby Heteren.
Master Engineering has become a key systems and solutions provider of static and dynamic weighing, batching, and dosing systems throughout The Netherlands and Belgium. Rice Lake plans to retain all existing Master Engineering employees and continue manufacturing as normal, while relocating the Arnhem operations to the Master Engineering facility in Heteren.
Rice Lake Weighing Systems Europe B.V. opened in 2011 with the goal of better serving Rice Lake’s existing European customer base. The acquisition works well for the company’s long-term growth and expansion plans within Europe, as it enhances Rice Lake’s core competencies and establishes a manufacturing presence within the E.U. The acquisition also expands the current distribution network for both companies. Rice Lake looks forward to continued growth and expansion within the European market.
Rice Lake Weighing Systems is a family-owned, ISO 9001-certified corporation based in the U.S. Its headquarters, metrology laboratory, and main manufacturing plant are located in Rice Lake, WI, with support facilities throughout the world including North America, South America, India, and the Netherlands.
