The intended fusion between Dewulf and Miedema, made public in early September, is to be completed this year. This is the joint announcement of both companies. With the takeover of Miedema by Dewulf, the merged company will be the world’s second largest in potato and vegetable machines. Dewulf and Miedema are already hard at work on a new line of machines to be introduced in phases during the coming years. ‘Every machine must be the best in its class. Our ambition is nothing less,’ says Hendrik Decramer, R&D manager.
