·2-min read

Komline-Sanderson, a designer and manufacturer of equipment for wastewater management, environmental control, and other industrial applications, announced today the acquisition of Haselden Company, Inc., an engineering design and installation business of waste-reduction systems serving the food and beverage industry. The acquisition is Komline’s third in recent weeks, as the company significantly expands its product and service offerings, manufacturing capacity, and geographic reach.

Founded in 1946 and headquartered in Peapack, New Jersey, Komline manufactures and services liquid and gas filtration and pollution control solutions for a diverse group of customers around the world, including industrial processing plants in end markets such as chemical manufacturing, food processing, and pharmaceuticals. Komline recently acquired Illinois-based Barnes International, a manufacturer of coolant filtration equipment, and Florida-based Harn R/O Systems, a producer of reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, and low-pressure membrane treatment systems.

"We are pleased to complete another important step in this multi-faceted expansion of our business," said Komline’s Chief Executive Officer, Danai Brooks. "Haselden has unparalleled expertise in design, fabrication, and installation of sanitation and waste-reduction equipment for beverage manufacturing plants. It also has a well-earned reputation for on-time, accurate, and cost-efficient project delivery, and we are proud to continue that legacy with both long-time and new customers."

Haselden, founded in 1972 in Charleston, South Carolina, offers turnkey solutions to help its customers navigate the ever-changing safety regulations and certification requirements in the food and beverage manufacturing industry. The company designs, manufactures, and distributes a full line of processing equipment, including fittings, valves, strainers, and product recovery systems, and it emphasizes reliable and consistent operation.

"We make it our business to know our customers’ plants, processes, and personnel," said Keith Haselden. "That means we can complete projects with minimal interruption and maximum efficiency – and that’s why so many of our customers have been with us for decades. As part of Komline, we will be able to provide that same top-tier service to many more customers while offering our existing customers even more products and services."
