OUR STORY

PFI is the result of a merger between two pillars in the sanitary conveying industry – KOFAB and Meyer Industries. Separately, they established themselves in their respective markets. And together we collaborate to provide a full range of best-in-class belt, bucket, horizontal motion, and vibratory conveying, and bulk product handling solutions.

PFI was acquired by Grote Company in 2021, bringing together food equipment manufacturers with decades of experience in their respective markets.

COMBINED EXPERTISE

Now, as part of the Grote family of brands, we are able to provide more complete solutions to our customers and capitalize on our shared expertise and history in the food processing industry.
