“This acquisition is a very important milestone in the development of SiccaDania as a leading supplier of high quality advanced process solutions to the global starch industry. Through this acquisition, SiccaDania gains a strong position as an innovative market leader not only for single machines, but for high quality technical solutions and state-of-the-art complete starch production process lines ‘’ comments SiccaDania’s
– CEO Soren Rasmussen.
“ The food processing industry is continuously facing demanding themes in today’s world, such as rising human population, environmental pollution and general change in customers’ lifestyles, forcing us to focus on the most sustainable and the most innovative technologies. By combining the resources within SiccaDania group, we will strive to become the world leader in advanced starch and co-products systems. Ranging from single components and process units to complete turnkey plants, we aim at becoming the first-choice supplier to our customers worldwide’’ continues Mr. Rasmussen.
SiccaDania is excited to have this experienced and talented group of people joining our organization. With over 125 years of experience, Nivoba and its team have become instrumental in developing many of the technologies currently used by starch producers all over the world. On the other hand, Hovex, initially a break-out from Nivoba, is considered an expert in delivering the highest demands for purity, efficiency and sustainability. In 2017, the combination of these two strong Dutch names has created a powerful player in the global starch industry.
Mr. Arend Jan Van Gelder, the current Managing Director of SiccaDania Netherlands, assuming the same role for NivobaHovex is certain that “the wealth of experience and know-how in NivobaHovex enables the combined group to design and deliver complete integrated systems from raw material intake to the best possible end products, while also keeping a close eye on your total energy, water and waste management. Not only will we be able to supply conventional process lines for starch products, we as NivobaHovex SiccaDania will also design and deliver unique solutions for side-streams and co-products promising lower water and energy consumption, higher product yields, and higher overall profit margins for customers.”
