Vacuum Cooling for Bakery Products on the Advance



    ZUG, Switzerland, Feb. 29 /CNW/ - Swiss mechanical engineering company
Permafood AG strengthens its growth strategy with the acquisition of
Switzerland's Spirig Engineering. The transaction becomes retroactively by 1.
January 2008.
    The engineering company predominantly serving international clients
gained excellent reputation with developments in the high tech area. Robotic
systems for the automobile industry as well as important components for the
air- and space industry are just some applications amongst many others. Spirig
Engineering consisting of 12 engineers and technicians is prominent in
developing and producing high tech machines based on vacuum technology. Some
industry examples would be the coating of screens and trend setting solar
cells. These projects have gotten much international attention in the last 10
years.
    Permafood AG gains with this transaction important strategic know-how in
the field of advanced vacuum technology. The company strengthens thereby its
worldwide market position in the production of vacuum cooling systems. This
leading edge industrial technology does provide for energy-saving, efficient
and careful cooling of food. Baking products for instance can be cooled down
to ambient temperature in just three minutes after baking. This procedure
allows a much longer shelf life for baking goods on a purely physical basis.
Moreover, the resulting products are much healthier since the use of chemical
additives can be reduced drastically or even eliminated. Spirig Engineering
will continue to develop solutions for third parties. The purchase price was
not revealed.
