DeLaval announced July 2 that it has further invested into the future of dairy farming solutions and services through the acquisition of milkrite | InterPuls from Avon Rubber. The transaction is subject to clearance from relevant antitrust authorities.
“We are proud to welcome milkrite | InterPuls to the DeLaval Group. Milkrite | InterPuls is a very successful company with a strong brand and trademark portfolio acknowledged by dairy farmers across the world,” DeLaval president and chief executive officer Joakim Rosengren said. "Milkrite | InterPuls will operate as a stand-alone company in the DeLaval organization, although Craig Sage, managing director of milkrite | InterPuls, will report directly to me."
Milkrite | InterPuls is a global leader that provides complete milking point solutions to dairy farmers around the world, with the aim of improving every farm it touches. It will continue its long-term strategy with the same management, organizational setup, brands and channels to market.
Avon Rubber CEO Paul McDonald said, “Milkrite | InterPuls has been an important part of Avon Rubber for many years. However, the board believes that now is the right time to sell the business. We believe that under new ownership, milkrite | InterPuls will have the opportunity to continue to flourish and grow in the future.”
