In January 2020, Herbert Solutions BV was acquired by Key Technology.

Following the acquisition, the Herbert brand will remain as a product brand for all Herbert products, both mechanical and optical. They are now positioned as a dedicated product group under the Key Technology corporate brand.

The existing Herbert structure including all employees and offices will remain unchanged.

On top of our existing structure and sales network, all Herbert product customers will now also have access to the global Key Technology sales and service network.

With offices, demo centers, R&D teams, a SupportPro service organization and channel partners all over the world, this will allow us to be even closer and more responsive to our existing customers and partners.

The combination of Herbert’s expertise in handling and sorting whole products and Key’s strong presence in processed potato and vegetable solutions creates a complimentary fit between our two companies. It will enable us to offer an even broader set of integrated solutions that will benefit our customers’ product quality, production efficiency and overall yield.

Key Technology, in turn, is part of the Food Processing Division of the Duravant Group of Companies. A second layer of reliability and trust that puts Herbert in a very strong position for a bright future.
