Provisur Technologies, Inc., Chicago, acquired Lutetia, a France-based manufacturer of food processing equipment, including tumblers, massagers, injectors, smokers and defrosters.

"Lutetia is a natural fit for our business," says Mel Cohen, president and CEO of Provisur. "The portfolio of equipment is complementary to our existing offering, and will allow us provide additional solutions and deeper value to our customers." 

Philippe Longo, the former owner of Lutetia, will continue to manage the business for Provisur.

“Bringing Lutetia into the group is another important step in Provisur's strategy of building a global, multicultural enterprise serving our customers around the world,” adds Cohen. “We are thrilled to have Philippe and his team join the Provisur family."

"I am pleased that Lutetia will now be part of Provisur," says Longo. "This is the next step in the evolution of our company, and will allow us to expand our global reach while also continuing to provide a high level of support to our existing customers."
