Provisur® Acquires Assets of Both AMFE B.V. and BFD Corporation

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – November 7, 2016 – Provisur Technologies, Inc. (, a global leader in innovative food processing technologies and systems, announces the simultaneous acquisition of select assets of both AMFE B.V. in the Netherlands and BFD Corporation in the United States.

AMFE is a leading producer of advanced press-type separation equipment used primarily in beef and pork applications. Leading meat processors use the AMFE press separation system, known as the Bone Cannon™, to recover high quality meat remaining on beef and pork bones after secondary processing. Colorado based BFD Corporation provides all sales, application expertise, installation and aftermarket support for AMFE equipment in North America.

Provisur will combine the activities of BFD and AMFE into its existing Separation Business Unit led by its Vice President, Olivier Kerdiles. John Shook, founder and former owner of BFD, will remain directly involved not only in the North American market, but in expanding distribution of the Bone Cannon in markets around the globe.

“These acquisitions expand Provisur’s lineup of separation equipment which includes Beehive® and AM2C® rotary separators,” said Kerdiles. “The Bone Cannon is an important addition to our separation portfolio as it extends our capabilities beyond poultry and fish to beef and pork applications.” Mel Cohen, Provisur’s CEO commented, “These important acquisitions are consistent with Provisur’s long range strategic plan and will help fuel our company’s continued global growth.”
