European Process Plant completes management buyout
UK-based bakery equipment supplier European Process Plant (EPP) has completed a management buyout of the company.
For 45 years, EPP has been supplying the bakery equipment from specialist manufacturers from across Europe.
Previous owners Keith Stalker and Josie Mitchell are stepping back from the business, but will give ongoing support to the management team, which comprises Steve Merritt, Stewart Morris, Melissa James and Roger Mott.
Managing director Steve Merritt says, “We are enthusiastic and positive about the opportunities for EPP in the years ahead and committed to ensuring the continued success of the business. We will build on the reputation so successfully established by the business whilst also seeking out opportunities to grow in the years ahead.”
He adds, “Whilst the political uncertainty of Brexit swirls around us, the depth of knowledge and experience within EPP means that we will continue to provide rock steady advice, ensuring customers get the right solutions to meet their needs.”
“We know that the high level of innovation in the bakery sector will continue and we are here to ensure that our customers can find the means of efficiently producing both their current ranges and the exciting new products of tomorrow.”
