COLUMBUS, Ohio – Grote Company, a manufacturer of reliable, top-quality food slicing and assembly equipment and parent company to industry suppliers Vanmark and PFI, announced that it has acquired ProFab, a food industry conveyor manufacturer, millwright, and process piping supplier and installer based in Springdale, Arkansas. 

“Grote Company’s acquisition of ProFab adds to our ever-growing family of brands,” said Bob Grote, chief executive officer of Grote Company. “ProFab’s focus on the poultry industry and suite of services allows us to expand into new markets within the food processing industry.
