Avery Berkel

Avery Berkel is a market leading manufacturer of in-store weighing and pre-packing solutions for food retailers worldwide. Avery Berkel, a major manufacturer of weighing systems and food processing equipment, was formed in 1993 when the British conglomerate General Electric Company plc combined their GEC Avery Ltd. (formerly W & T Avery Ltd.) business with the newly acquired Berkel company. The group continued as a subsidiary of GEC (and later Marconi plc) until March 2000 when it was sold to Weigh-Tronix for £102.5 million to create Avery Weigh-Tronix. In 2007, Avery Weigh-Tronix sold Avery Berkel to Illinois Tool Works.
