Volm Companies, Inc., an industry leader in providing high-quality packaging and equipment solutions to the fresh produce industry, has acquired the business of Atech, Inc. in Monte Vista, Colo.

Atech has been a long-time and valuable partner for Volm, representing the Volmpack line of equipment with a local sales and service model. Over the past few years, Atech had also been partnering with Volm in the distribution of packaging in the area. 

With the acquisition, Volm will occupy the current Atech facility, a 7,200-square-foot warehouse on nine acres. Through the acquisition, Volm plans to invest in resources and improvements at the location to offer a higher level of direct service for its customers in the San Luis Valley as well as provide for a regional Colorado hub to service those in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona

“This purchase allows us to increase our presence in one of the largest fresh potato-growing region in the United States,” says Daniel Mueller, president and CEO of Volm. “We believe that this higher ‘touch’ frequency with our customers will help us better understand the needs and ultimately be able to offer a Volm total solution service to this very important area. Having a physical presence makes sense for Volm because it makes sense for our customers. We are very excited about this decision and certainly wish to thank Atech for their many years of representing Volm in this area.”

“In the last year, we’ve built a new, state-of-the-art facility in Pasco, Wash., and opened the doors of Volm Canada in Ancaster, Ontario, and Volm Mexico in Mexicali, Mexico,” says vice president of sales and marketing Matt Alexander. “We feel it’s important that our customers across North America know our level of commitment to providing them with the level of service they deserve. The added presence will now allow us to make this possible in this region.”
