Key Technology and Visys announce merger

Key Technology and Visys NV, a provider of chute-fed in-air sorters for food processors and waste recyclers, have entered into a merger agreement. Visys will continue to operate in Hasselt, Belgium as a wholly owned subsidiary of Key Technology. The merger will add field-proven in-air sorters to Key’s line of belt-fed sorters, and Visys’ advanced laser technology and hyperspectral-based BioPrint sorting will complement Key’s camera/laser sorting and conveying systems integration.
