Marel acquires duck processing solutions

25 January 2021

Marel has acquired PMJ, a provider of processing solutions for the duck industry. 

Poultry Machinery Joosten (PMJ) is located in Opmeer in the Netherlands. Its product portfolio of primary processing solutions, including waxing and automated evisceration, will make Marel the industry’s only full-line provider of duck processing solutions. 

PMJ’s management team will stay on board and ensure business continuity for employees and customers, serving as the duck knowledge center. 
The global duck meat market is a growing market, with an estimated value of around 6 billion euros. The annual volume of duck meat is currently 4.5 million tons, with 70% of this volume in China, where Marel already has an established presence.

Commenting on the acquisition, Roger Claessens, EVP Poultry at Marel, said: “The acquisition of PMJ is a logical step for Marel to expand its third pillar within poultry processing alongside broilers and turkey. Technical expertise and a track record of continuous product innovation are defining characteristics of both PMJ and Marel. The high quality of PMJ’s solutions reflects the company’s 23 years of dedication to duck processing. With our combined efforts and continued focus on innovation, we will be in a stronger position to transform the duck industry in partnership with our customers.”
