Pro Mach has announced the acquisition of US-based rotary liquid filling packaging machinery provider, Federal Manufacturing, for an undisclosed amount.

Federal will join Pro Mach's Primary Packaging Business Unit, which serves the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and household goods companies by providing primary and secondary packaging machinery solutions and consumables.

Pro Mach president and CEO, Mark Anderson, said the acquisition of Federal Manufacturing will allow the company to venture into the liquid filler market.

"We will continue to invest in Federal to grow their business and further develop their product and service capabilities. We have an outstanding opportunity to create synergies with our Fowler Products capping business and other Pro Mach brands," Anderson said.

The combined product portfolio is expected to provide customers of both Fowler and Federal with benefits, in addition to an opportunity to Fowler to collaborate with Federal's team on new solutions and services.

According to the US-based integrated packaging products and solutions provider Pro Mach, the acquisition will help ensure the continued growth of the Federal brand, besides introducing the company to new markets and customers.

Cobb, who is set to join Pro Mach as Federal vice president of sales commenting on the acquisition, said: "Together we are a single source for a wide range of high quality, complementary solutions, and integrated products across the entire packaging line. That's a significant advantage for our customers."

Federal designs and manufactures liquid filling and capping machinery for global dairy, food, chemical, coatings and pharmaceutical companies.
