Zwolle, the Netherlands, March 6, 2019 – We are pleased to announce that DME will re-open its Charlottetown based manufacturing facility under new CETP ownership. The organization, which was placed in receivership in November 2018, has been acquired by CIMC Enric Tank & Process B.V. (CETP).
Since 1991, DME has been designing and manufacturing craft brewing equipment in Charlottetown. Over time, the company grew to include the Newlands brand and expanded into other sectors including biotech and pharmaceuticals. Under new ownership, the DME and Newlands (NSI) brands will operate as DME Process Systems Ltd registered in Charlottetown and are in full operation as of today.
The acquisition of DME provides the CETP group the opportunity to strengthen its position in the overall brewing market and further increase its manufacturing footprint in Canada.
“We are very excited to be a part of this prestigious international group of companies,” says Marc de Jong, Managing Director of the new DME Process Systems Ltd. “Their innovation, market presence, manufacturing locations and experience will further strengthen our already globally recognized brands.”
Marc de Jong adds that many DME employees have already returned to work in Charlottetown, and that the facility is already once again fully operational.
“The DME Group brings us an experienced team as well as a great customer base, which allows us to further increase our presence in North America,” says CEO of CETP, Mr. Ko Brink. “Adding DME/NSI to our group brings two strong brands in the (craft) brewing industry that will highly contribute to our existing brand portfolio.”
DME Process Systems Ltd. will continue to manufacture both the DME and NSI brands out of the Charlottetown location. While DME Process Systems Ltd. is a new entity, they will work with previously installed DME and NSI breweries for any parts, service or expansion needs.
