A/S Dybvad Stål Industri and Erlinord A/S have announced their merger into a single entity called DSI Freezing Solutions A/S.
After A/S Dybvad Stål Industri's 2017 acquisition of Erlinord A/S, the two leading manufacturers of plate freezing and handling solutions yesterday (5 November) announced their merger into a single entity with a fresh new name and visual identity – DSI Freezing Solutions A/S.
At the end of 2017 A/S Dybvad Stål Industri, a Danish maker of manually operated and automatic plate freezers for ammonia and CO2-based applications in the food processing industry, acquired its long-term Danish partner for handing solutions, Erlinord A/S. The cost price of the equity investment was DKK 37,931,000 (~ €5.85 million).
The companies described the change as the result of a comprehensive strategic process to prepare for international growth and to support their positions as international market leaders in plate freezing and handling solutions.
“Even though we have made significant changes to our strategy, the strong values and ideas on which the company was built will remain unchanged – particularly in relation to our very high-quality standards and our strong dedication to customers.”
– Lars Priess, CEO, DSI Freezing Solutions A/S
New identity to match ambition for future
The new name comes with a new visual identity designed to match DSI’s “drive and ambitious growth strategy,” the company said.
“The new name and visual identity reflect our strong performance, our delivery of high quality, and the dedication to plate freezing and handling systems that we’ve built over many years,” said Lars Priess, CEO at DSI Freezing Solutions A/S.
DSI also presented a new company website with more user-friendly navigation and a guide to future freezing technology.
