New Plant to Help Meet Growing Global Demand for Baby Food

CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SPX Corporation (NYSE: SPW) today announced that it has been awarded a contract worth more than $28 million to help Biocom Ltd. establish the Nesvizh Baby Food Factory in The Republic of Belarus.

Biocom expects the new baby food factory to be export-oriented with sufficient capacity to process 500 tons of milk per day.  The baby food factory is expected to produce liquid baby food, a wide range of yogurts, cottage cheese and a variety of milk including ultra-high temperature, extended shelf life, pasteurized and flavored milks.

Under the terms of the contract, SPX has agreed to provide Biocom with a turnkey dairy processing system featuring an extensive portfolio of SPX solutions utilizing ultrafiltration and infusion technologies. The system will include an array of highly engineered  SPX equipment, including homogenizers, separators, plate and scraped surface heat exchangers, bacteria clarifiers, pumps, valves, membrane technology, extended shelf life technology with microfiltration and ultra high temperature tubular infusion plants.

"SPX is working with Biocom to establish a state-of-the-art dairy processing plant in Belarus that is designed to deliver high capacity while also being highly flexible and highly efficient," notes Marc Michael, president of SPX Flow Food and Beverage.  "We are leveraging our deep expertise in fresh dairy processing to help Biocom create a dairy plant that is optimized for product consistency, operational efficiency, food safety and sustainability."

The Nesvizh Baby Food Factory is the second SPX Biocom project since 2013, and is projected to become fully operational in either late 2015 or 2016. The first project was executed on behalf of the Primemilk division of Biocom, and involved SPX designing and installing a whey processing plant.
