Royal Duyvis Wiener Acquisition of JAF Inox & Thouet Now Official with Both Subsidiaries Undergoing Rebranding 

Koog aan de Zaan, Netherlands – 29th June, 2021

One of the leading manufacturers in the cocoa and chocolate processing industry, Royal Duyvis Wiener B.V., have formally announced the official name changes and rebranding for two of its major subsidiaries, Jaf Inox Indústria de Máquinas de Chocolates S.A. (JAF Inox) and Thouet Lehmann GmbH (Thouet). They will be renamed as Duyvis Wiener Brazil and Duyvis Wiener Germany respectively.

Already a global presence in the manufacturing of cocoa and chocolate processing equipment, Royal Duyvis Wiener have made a number of industry acquisitions in the past ten years, which has enabled them to deliver on the entire production process “from bean to bar” for its customers.

Thouet have an established history in the chocolate and cocoa industry, with the German company producing relevant manufacturing equipment since 1947. Royal Duyvis Wiener already acquired Thouet back in 2013 to supplement its equipment portfolio, with the official renaming to Royal Duyvis Germany now taking place to strengthen the group’s global branding across all markets.

However, given that Thouet is such an iconic name within the industry, the business group are choosing to maintain some of its old branding, with all traditional chocolate equipment now carrying the product label ‘Royal Duyvis Thouet’.

As for the Brazilian company, JAF Inox, they have proven to be a strong market player when it comes to gourmet chocolate equipment lines and bean-to-bar concepts. Having been fully acquired by Royal Duyvis Wiener recently, the newly-titled Royal Duyvis Brazil will prove to be a valuable asset in strengthening the business group’s market presence in South America.
