Dorner Mfg. Corp. is a supplier of industrial and sanitary conveyor systems. The addition of Sautem is the latest step in Dorner Holding Company’s international expansion. In the past two years, Dorner acquired Geppert-Band, a German-based manufacturer of belt and modular belt conveyors; FlexMove, a Malaysia-based manufacturer of flexible chain conveyors; and opened an office in Ontario, Canada. The acquisition of Sautem better positions Dorner to continue growing its presence in Mexico and Latin America, according to the company.
“We continue to see new opportunities in Mexico and Latin America. The addition of Sautem, a company with more than 15 years of experience in process automation, will allow us to better support this growing market,” says Terry Schadeberg, President and CEO, Dorner Mfg. Corp. “On behalf of everyone at Dorner Holding Company, I’d like to welcome the Sautem employees to the Dorner family.”
