Baker Perkins parent company, Schenck Process, set for major rebrand as Coperion

The parent company of Baker Perkins industry equipment, German-based Schenck Process Food and Performance Materials (FPM), is set for a major rebranding after its acquisition by Hillenbrand last year, and is to be known under a new identity, Coperion, writes Neill Barston.

As the business noted, its new name stems from an operating company of Hillenbrand, which can trace a total of140 years’ experience in some of the world’s most critical processing industries.

Schenck Process FPM has contributed an integral part to its divisions, which support processing solutions for manufacturing in polymers/performance materials, food, health & nutrition and aftermarket sales & services.

As the business explained, Schenck Process’s  team members, manufacturing sites, test and innovation centres, and technologies are expected to remain in place. This includes flagship brands such as Raymond and Bartlett-Snow, Stock, Baker Perkins, Kemutec and Mucon. Customers can experience a seamless transition bolstered by more resources and broader technology capabilities available through Coperion. It has not yet been confirmed whether Baker Perkins branding will be retained.

“The acquisition of Schenck Process FPM in 2023 has been an essential step for the development of Coperion toward a more diversified company and an expanded footprint. With the transition of the FPM brand name under Coperion, we take the next step in our journey,” said Ulrich Bartel, President of Coperion.

“Aligning more closely with Coperion reflects a significant opportunity for us to combine our strengths and offer customers access to a broader portfolio of solutions, technologies and services,” said Matthew Craig, Vice President and General Manager, Schenck Process FPM. “This wider range of complementary technologies and increased scale makes us even more capable of delivering value.”

The evolution to the Coperion name and brand begins with the digital domain shifting to The company’s website and emails, including those from technology brands such as Baker Perkins, will change. The new website can be found at
