South American Expansion Confirms Form-Fill-Seal Technology Leader’s Position as Key Player in Global Yogurt Industry 

Sao Paolo — Jan. 14, 2015 — One year after its acquisition by Barry-Wehmiller, Arcil, a supplier of packaging technology for the food processing and fresh dairy industries, has extended its focus to South America’s growing yogurt market.

Dinieper is dedicated to the design, manufacture, service and upgrade of form-fill-seal (FFS) machines and provides services to South American food processing and dairy companies from its manufacturing base in Sao Paolo, Brazil. As a respected brand in Latin America, Dinieper strengthens Arcil’s ability to support customers and deploy its solutions in this growing region.

Arcil FFS machines are operating in more than 40 countries around the world, both for large global dairy customers and for smaller local producers. The establishment of an operation in Latin America reinforces the commitment to local service and support for complete FFS lines. In the last 12 months, Synerlink has established local support operations in North America and Asia.

"Dinieper's expertise in FFS technology and their thorough understanding of our machines make them a natural partner for Arcil’s growth in Brazil and Latin America. Moreover, their extensive experience in servicing customer equipment will allow us to strengthen our solutions, " said Eric Lesbats, General Director of Arcil.
