SPX Corporation Secures Contract to Provide Infant Formula Drying System for Plant in India

SPX Corporation announced that it has been awarded a contract worth more than $10 million from a leading global producer of infant formula to expand its drying plant in India. Under the terms of the contract, SPX will provide an infant formula spray drying system featuring an array of homogenizers, heat exchangers, pumps, valves, atomizers and air filtration equipment from SPX. The plant is expected to produce a variety of dairy-based infant food products. The SPX spray drying system will utilize its Triple-A(R) spray dryer, recommended for agglomerated powders that are easy to disperse and dissolve. Powder manufacturers are facing increasingly rigid quality demands requiring full control over powder structures and functional properties. SPX's Triple-A(R) spray dryers are customizable to ensure consistent end-product quality, while also providing complete control over a plant's production run-time, yield, and operating costs. The core SPX technology and control system will be designed and managed from SPX's global design centre in Denmark. All other mechanical and electrical installations will be managed by SPX's local team in India to help ensure that the project complies with all local standards and is completed on time.

SPX Considers Acquisitions

SPX Corporation (NYSE:SPW) will seek acquisitions. On being asked about opportunity to build out through M&A and opportunities in Food and Beverage business, David Wilson, President of SPX said, "It is an area in the future that we think acquisition opportunities are very interesting because it probably has less focus than particularly our Flow Power and Energy space as it relates to the other large flow players globally. It is probably more fragmented and there's more opportunities overtime. So we're not active though we're paying attention to what's going on in the market and at some point in the future we'll come back to the market and we'll talk about being ready to get back into the acquisition game."
