Middleby Buys Deutsche Beverage Technology

The Middleby Corporation has added to its burgeoning beverage portfolio with the acquisition of Deutsche Beverage Technology, a maker of beverage brewing and processing systems. Based in Charlotte, N.C., the company has $40 million in annual revenues.

“Deutsche is a technology leader in beverage and liquid processing, offering a wide variety of advanced solutions for beer, cold brew coffee, kombucha and other liquid extraction applications,” said Tim FitzGerald, CEO of The Middleby Corporation.

This marks Middleby’s second beverage-related acquisition in less than a year. In June of 2019 Middleby acquired Ss Brewtech, a maker of craft brewing and beverage equipment.
