Oliver Packaging & Equipment Co., whose slicers and other machines are used in instore bakery and other industries, has purchased the assets and designs of Bloemhof Inc.

The move follows a 2016 deal between Walker, Michigan-based Oliver and Kirkland, Quebec-based Bloemhof in which Oliver became the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of Bloemhof’s bakery equipment. With the new deal, Oliver is now the sole owner of the Bloemhof product line. Bloemhof also specializes in bakery equipment, in particular molders and baggers.

“The past couple of years have allowed the teams at Oliver to learn the Bloemhof equipment product and improve on the engineering, manufacturing and service,” says Chadd Floria, Oliver’s president. “Oliver is excited to add the high-quality Bloemhof molders and baggers to our line of bread and bun slicers.”
