“The acquisition of Guttridge is a significant milestone in the continued growth of Mitchells and our forever expanding bulk handling capacities.
“As a Group, we are now in a stronger position globally to offer our customers a much wider scope and range of products, particularly for projects requiring smaller capacities which is in growing demand in developing economies which is a strong focus of the Group.
“The synergy of both companies, more than anything, made the acquisition most attractive. With our current and future customers in mind, we see the deal as a giant step to support even more customers in expanding territories and cater to more industries – specifically biomass, waste, recycling, chemicals and minerals.
“We look forward to the beginning of a strong and successful relationship with Guttridge and its employees.”
In 13 years of Australian ownership, Mitchells has grown from a small original equipment manufacturer in China, supplying solutions to customers in Asia and North America, to a leading global brand supplying material handling equipment to the world’s largest agri-food companies.
