ProXES GmbH, Hameln / Germany

STEPHAN, FRYMAKORUMA, TERLET and SUATEC under one umbrella

Since May, 2014, Stephan Machinery and FrymaKoruma have been heading into the future with a common goal. These two strong companies with a long history of processing technology are to co-operate in the future under an innovative umbrella organisation: ProXES - the Processing Group.

Stephan Machinery and FrymaKoruma do not only have strong reputations within the Food, Pharmaceutical and Health Care technologies; they also see an excellent addition to their previous applications and their market presence in the future. By means of a clear focus on the process technology a stronger market position of these companies will be possible under a common umbrella organisation. This is why the DBAG portfolio company ProXES acquires the entire shares of FrymaKoruma (AG and GmbH) from Romaco Group. Together with ProXES we are thrilled at being able to realise previously unknown possibilities of our core business – the clear focus is on process technology. FrymaKoruma and Stephan Machinery will benefit to the advantage of both companies.

ProXES stands for “Processing and eXpert Engineering Services”. This new name is a promise to our customers and therefore includes an obligation by the new partners. 

As from 1st July 2015 ProXES Group acquires Dutch Processing Equipment Manufacturer Terlet N.V. Therefore ProXES GmbH enlarges the group product portfolio. Terlet is well-known for its components and systems for liquid food and dairy processing, such as the highly competitive heat exchanger Terlotherm® and sizes its unique experiences from the last fruitful decades. Now, Stephan Machinery, FrymaKoruma and Terlet head into a shared future with the common goal of leading the worldwide expertise for batch-centered and continuous processing technology with a combined market share well above 100 million Euros.

Since years, Terlet successfully follows its multinational customers into their worldwide markets. The existing sales and service network of ProXES is eager to serve all international customers with enhanced collaboration and on a closer approach. By means of a clear focus on process technology a stronger market position of Terlet, FrymaKoruma and Stephan Machinery will be reached under the ProXES organisation.

SUATEC, previously known as one reliable supplier for automation solutions of ProXES Group, became a member of our group on 01.01.2017. This company has its roots in switch cabinet design and, over the years, has consistently developed into an expert for machine and plant automation. SUATEC will therefore be an experienced partner in the field of industrial automation.
