Bretèche Industrie acquires Shick Solutions

Bretèche Industrie has announced the acquisition of US ingredient automation firm Shick Solutions.

Based in Kansas City, family-owned Shick will grant Bretèche Industrie access to the US market, as well as reinforcing its bakery arm while itself benefiting from greater geographical reach thanks to a partnership with fellow Bretèche Industrie subsidiary Esteve.

“As a global company, we have long wanted to increase our presence in North America,” said Didier Soumet, CEO of the Bretèche Group. “By acquiring Shick, not only will we have a strong base of operations in the United States to support our brands, but we will also have a partner that is closely tied to and aligned with the food industry there.”

“In Bretèche Group, we saw a way to secure the future for our employees and the legacy of our company far beyond the family ownership of the company,” added Joe Ungashick, CEO Shick Solutions.
