Fresh Produce packaging and equipment giant Volm Companies Inc. announced recently it has acquired Atech Inc. in Monte Vista, CO.
Atech, a longtime partner for Volm, had represented the Volmpack equipment line and in recent years had also partnered with Volm for distribution of packaging in the Monte Vista region.
Volm will now occupy the 7,200-square foot Atech warehouse that is located on some nine acres. A Volm release reported, “Through the acquisition, Volm plans to invest in resources and improvements at the location to offer a higher level of direct service for its customers in the San Luis Valley area as well as provide for a regional Colorado hub to service those in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.”
Volm products are used by a vast array of fresh product, and the location particularly benefits the potato industry. Daniel Mueller, president and CEO of Volm, said, “We are very excited about this decision and certainly wish to thank Atech for their many years of representing Volm in this area.”
Vice President of Sales & Marketing Matt Alexander added “In the last year, we’ve built a new, state-of-the-art facility in Pasco, WA, and opened the doors of Volm Canada in Ancaster, Ontario, and Volm Mexico, in Mexicali, Mexico.”
The Colorado facility is located at 1100 S County Rd 3 E, Monte Vista, Colorado.
