CPM, Waterloo, Iowa has acquired the assets of Pellet Mill Outfitters, LLC (PMO) of Commerce City, Colorado. The acquisition adds PMO innovations to the CPM product line, and a former engineer and a former division manager return to the CPM staff.

PMO, a manufacturer of after-market parts for pellet mills, sold replacement parts and peripheral equipment such as the “Quick Release” feed chute, “Enforcer” force feeder, and “Infusion” conditioner. Former CPM engineer Kelsey Thom and former CPM business unit manager Derrald Houston founded PMO as TDM Design, Inc. in 2000.  Both have returned to CPM; Thom will play a key role in the engineering department and Houston will serve as sales representative in the Rocky Mountain area.

“We value Thom and Houston for their ideas and solutions they created for their customers,” said Ted Waitman, president of CPM. “We are pleased to have them rejoin our team and to incorporate the strength of their product line into ours.”

“We look forward to re-joining the CPM family of companies and continuing our approach to building customer support and loyalty by offering effective products and services second to none in the industry,” said Derrald Houston.  “Utilizing CPM’s strength to introduce and support new product technology will create a win-win situation for the market”

“We will continue to serve our customers well with the manufacturing strength of CPM building our most successful products,” said Kelsey Thom, “In my new position at CPM, I will continue to enjoy direct contact with customers.”

Under the California Pellet Mill, Roskamp Champion, and Beta Raven brands, CPM is the world’s leading manufacturer and designer of pelleting, particle size reduction, and automation systems for the animal feed milling and oilseed processing industries. The company operates plants in Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, New Hampshire, Ireland, The Netherlands, China and Singapore.
