Thouet supplies conches, mixers, melters kneaders, pumps and cocoa powder pulverising plants to the chocolate and cocoa industry
The latest addition comes two and half years after Duyvis Wiener snapped up F.B. Lehmann.
Duyvis Wiener said the acquisition would allow it to incorporate F.B. Lehmann’s expertise in refining with Thouet’s mixing and conching technologies.
Current Thouet managing director Rudolf Knops will remain in his role, but sales, business and technology development will now be handled by Duyvis Wiener.
