De Laval Separator To Become Alfa-Laval, Inc.

The De Laval Separator Company, well-known in the marine industry, will change its name to Alfa-Laval, Inc., and simultaneously move its corporate and industrial, food and dairy marketing headquarters to Ft. Lee, N.J., March 1, 1980.

The name change, according to Kees Sonius, president, emphasizes the U.S. company's close relationship with its parent corporation, Alfa-Laval, the w o r l d 's largest producer of centrifuges for marine and industrial use, compact heat e x c h a n g e r s , and milking machines. The company is also well-known for its chemical process systems and liquid processing equipment for industrial plants. Alfa-Laval AB is headquartered in Tumba, Sweden.

A l o n g with Alfa-Laval, the company will continue to utilize its well-known trade names including De Laval® centrifuges and agricultural equipment, American Heat™ compact heat exchangers, Contherm® scraped-surface heat exchangers, and G&H® valves, pumps and fittings.

At the time of the name change to Alfa-Laval, Inc., the company will move its corporate and industrial divisions to 2115 Linwood Avenue, Ft. Lee, N.J. 07024. The Ft. Lee location, a new five-story building, is adjacent to Interstate 80 95 at the western end of the George Washington Bridge. This move will allow the company to centralize its many industrial divisions in one headquarters location.

Alfa-Laval, Inc. will continue to operate its manufacturing plants in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Somerville, N.J., Lykens, Pa., Newburyport, Mass., and Kenosha, Wis.
