Accles & Shelvoke completes transition to Frontmatec

Accles & Shelvoke has altered its name and unveiled a new brand logo following its acquisition by Frontmatec last year. 

The food production equipment manufacturing group is now known as Frontmatec Accles & Shelvoke.

The new brand is designed to reflect the evolving focus and standards of the group, said Jesper Gade, global marketing director for Frontmatec.

“By combining Frontmatec and Accles & Shelvoke we are bridging our strategy for creating a strong global corporate identity under the Frontmatec name and utilising our global presence to further develop the captive stunning business with the name that, for more than a century, has been synonymous with captive stunning tools,” he added.

Birmingham-based Accles & Shelvoke, which was founded in 1913, was bought out by the Scandinavian engineering group in May 2017, as Frontmatec looked to offer a full product and service solution to the red meat industry.

The addition of Accles & Shelvoke to the group has given the Danish business a large share of the global captive bolt equipment market, it said.
