The FPM business joins Hillenbrand’s Advanced Process Solutions business segment.

Keith Cochrane, CEO Schenck Process Group, commented:

“I am delighted that the FPM business has great opportunities to further develop its potential under new ownership. The Hillenbrand suite of technology and solutions and its global footprint provide an excellent home for the FPM business, creating a strong platform for continued growth and success. 

Following the divestiture, Schenck Process will strengthen its position as a leading provider of process solutions for mission-critical applications with a focus on the EMEA and Asian markets, offering customers a unique combination of individual products, smart solutions, and deep application expertise across a range of end markets including infrastructure, chemicals, green technologies and advanced materials.”
