Chicago-based Dedert Corp. has signed a license agreement with Swiss Combi - W. Kunz dryTec AG, for Dedert dryers in Europe.

Dedert has been the U.S. licensee for Swiss Combi’s ecoDry dryers, an indirect drying process with a closed-loop vapor system, since 2000. The license agreement will enable Dedert to provide its European customers with an elevated level of support through Swiss Combi’s established and comprehensive local sourcing, manufacturing and installation services. Swiss Combi will work closely with Dedert in Chicago to continue to provide existing and new European customers with service.

“Dedert has enjoyed a successful working relationship with Swiss Combi in the U.S. for 13 years.” says Guy Lonergan, president of Dedert. “This license agreement is the natural progression of the strong partnership enjoyed by both of our companies. Dedert’s spray and ring drying technologies will nicely compliment Swiss Combi’s drying portfolio in Europe and we are thrilled to extend our existing partnership.”

Swiss Combi - W. Kunz dryTec AG, located in Dintikon Switzerland, has specialized in the development and construction industrial dryers for more than 50 years.
