J-Tec Material Handling Celebrates Successful Acquisition of Gomez Madrid Soluciones Industriales, Expanding Expertise in Process Engineering
Founded on a legacy of family business values, J-Tec Material Handling has established itself as an EPC leader developing innovative, material handling and process engineering projects. Serving diverse industries in the food and chemical sectors, J-Tec's core business involves designing and implementing cutting-edge solutions for handling solids and liquids, with a primary focus on building optimal production processes for its clients.
At J-Tec Material Handling, the key focus on niche markets, from Snacks and Baked Foods, Food Ingredients and Infant Nutrition to PVC Processing and Plastic Compounding, unlocks a myriad of benefits, including extraordinary technical expertise, enhanced project execution capabilities tailored to unique needs, and a profound understanding of specific industry and customer requirements.
What sets J-Tec apart is their commitment to a personalised approach for each project. J-Tec prides itself on being supplier-independent, allowing the company to deliver tailor-made solutions for every unique challenge. J-Tec’s philosophy rejects the one-size-fits-all model; instead, their engineers engage with the customer, leveraging their in-house expertise and tools to craft a bespoke solution for every single project.
For its customers, J-Tec is a process partner throughout the complete project lifecycle. Their vast in-house expertise encompasses everything from conceptual design through detailed process engineering, project management, procurement, and manufacturing, up until installation and commissioning, and even training and maintenance if required. Every project is different, and thanks to J-Tec’s highly qualified and experienced engineers, they can support customers anywhere in the world.
The acquisition of Gomez Madrid Soluciones Industriales brings invaluable synergies to the organisation. The proficiency of GM in manufacturing custom parts in stainless steel and carbon steel seamlessly aligns with J-Tec’s goals to strengthen production capacities. Moreover, GM's expertise in skid construction complements J-Tec’s existing capabilities, allowing the company to provide comprehensive solutions and position itself as a one-stop-shop for customers.
Initially dedicated to the metal sector, Gomez Madrid Soluciones Industriales commenced operations in 1996 as a metal workshop, later evolving into a company dedicated to process engineering. Specialising in the conveying of solids and liquids, as well as automation, Gomez Madrid provides comprehensive process engineering services. They possess the expertise to design, execute, and implement various processes at both project management and installation levels.
Gomez Madrid offers three core services: overall project management, process engineering, and equipment manufacturing for industrial machinery production. Over the course of their history, the company has undertaken diverse projects across various industries, gradually specialising in sectors such as Food, Cosmetics, Chemicals, and the Mineral Industry.
Both J-Tec Material Handling and Gomez Madrid Soluciones Industriales share a key focus on the process industry. This acquisition enhances their prowess in this sector, enabling them to offer unparalleled solutions to their clients.
This strategic move further reinforces J-Tec’s commitment to global expansion, particularly in the Spanish-speaking market, ensuring better understanding of their customers and improved customer intimacy in these regions. J-Tec is poised to provide tailored solutions that resonate with local industries.
As a proud member of the Katoen Natie Group of Companies, J-Tec Material Handling exemplifies a powerful partnership within the global logistics and industrial services sector. The harmonious synergy between Katoen Natie and J-Tec positions their collaborative venture as an industry-leading force.
Furthermore, Katoen Natie’s proven track record of successfully delivering complete turnkey, greenfield projects worldwide, positions them well to undertake and execute large-scale projects. This consolidates J-Tec Material Handling's position as a reliable one-stop-shop for clients seeking end-to-end solutions in material handling and process engineering.
"We are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead with the acquisition of Gomez Madrid Soluciones Industriales. This strategic move not only expands our market reach but also reinforces our commitment to being a global leader in process engineering. Together with Katoen Natie, we are well-positioned to deliver comprehensive solutions and drive innovation in the industry," stated Jim Kievit, CEO of J-Tec Material Handling.
Looking ahead, J-Tec Material Handling envisions a future marked by growth, collaboration, and continued success, propelled by the collective expertise and production capacity of the integrated entity.
