Gerald Ondrey

K-Tron (Pitman, N.J.; www.ktron.com) , a global leader in feeding, dosing and pneumatic-conveying equipment and systems, will operate under the brand name Coperion K-Tron. Coperion (Stuttgart, Germany; www.coperion.com) was acquired by U.S.-based Hillenbrand, Inc. (www.Hillenbrand.com) in December 2012. K-Tron has been a part of Hillenbrand’s Process Equipment Group since 2010.

"Operating under the Coperion name is a decisive and indispensable component of our corporate strategy, which aims to further expand our position in the global market,” says Thomas Kehl, president of Coperion. “This brand strategy will allow our customers to comprehend our globally unique range of products more easily. It also enables us to more easily utilize the forces of globalization to our own advantage."

The decision to integrate K-Tron into Coperion represents the next logical step in Coperion’s strategy, began in 2001 with the introduction of the name Coperion. This integrative name expresses the uniqueness of Coperion's position in the market, as Coperion is the only company worldwide to offer complete customized compounding systems and bulk materials handlings systems from a single supplier.
