The acquisition enhances their ability to serve a more diverse customer base while drawing on the strong reputation of the Marlen and Afoheat brands.

Riverside, MO – January 10, 2017 – Marlen International, Inc. ["Marlen"], a global manufacturer of highly engineered food processing equipment and systems, and a subsidiary of Chicago-based Duravant LLC, has acquired Afoheat – an innovative provider of gas powered heating, roasting, searing and grilling equipment solutions for the food industry.

Headquartered in Veurne, Belgium, Afoheat has built a strong reputation with food processors in many parts of the world as the premiere provider of efficient, reliable, sanitary and flexible solutions for searing, char-marking and grilling of high quality food products on an industrial scale. Afoheat's product portfolio is a natural extension of Marlen's thermal processing solutions which includes batch ovens, chillers and dehydrators.

"Afoheat has a strong reputation for quality and reliability, and we're excited to leverage our combined knowledge and expertise to broaden our footprint in the marketplace."

Afoheat's offering consists of continuous gas powered infrared and direct flame technologies which enhance the appearance, aroma and taste of value-added food products such as meat and poultry, fish, vegetables and baked goods.

"Our team at Afoheat is very excited to be part of the Marlen family, which, through their considerable resources, will help accelerate our growth and original vision of becoming a worldwide leader in our niche in the marketplace," says Wim Clays, Managing Director of Afoheat.

Afoheat will join the Marlen family of distinct food industry brands, thereby retaining their well-established brand position in the marketplace.
