JBT Corporation, a prominent global technology solutions provider to high-value segments of the food & beverage industry, today reported results for the second quarter of 2022. The Company also announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Bevcorp, a leading provider of beverage processing and packaging solutions.
"During the second quarter, our team continued to navigate a challenging operating environment in order to deliver for our customers," said Brian Deck, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Demand for our FoodTech solutions remained strong in North America, while economic pressures in Europe materialized in connection with high inflation and the conflict in Ukraine. At AeroTech, the strong demand trajectory continues."
"We are executing on our Elevate 2.0 capital deployment strategy with the acquisition of Alco-food-machines and the announcement to acquire Bevcorp," continued Deck. "Bevcorp will expand JBT's presence in the beverage processing and packaging market, while its strong recurring revenue profile, leading service culture, and accretive margins will enhance JBT's competitive position."

Second Quarter 2022
"We made progress in the second quarter of 2022 with sequential gains in revenue, margins, and earnings," said Matt Meister, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. "As we expected, inflation and supply chain impacts continued, while foreign exchange headwinds weighed more heavily on our results. Overall, orders remained at healthy levels and total backlog was at $1.1 billion, which is supportive of our double digit revenue growth forecast for full year 2022."
