  • Overview

    John Bean Technologies Corporation (JBT Corporation) is a leading global technology solutions provider to high-value segments of the food processing and air transportation industries. The company designs, manufactures, tests and services technologically sophisticated systems and products for its customers.


    JBT keeps food cold and jets in the air.  Its JBT FoodTech segment makes commercial-grade refrigeration systems, freezers, ovens, canning equipment and food processing systems for fruit, poultry, meat patties, breads, pizzas, seafood and ready-to-eat meals.  JBT AeroTech manufactures and services ground support equipment (plane de-icers, aircraft tow vehicles and cargo loading systems), airport gate equipment (Jetway brand) and military equipment.


    John Bean Technologies was spun off from FMC Technologies in 2008.  JBT Corporation takes its name from John Bean, a California inventor who founded Bean Spray Pump Company in 1884, the company that eventually became Food Machinery Corporation (FMC) though a series of mergers and acquisitions in the 20th century.  (The original Bean Spray Pump technology was adapted to make a plane de-icer in the 1960s.)


    In mid-2012, JBT's FoodTech division bought container sterilization machinery belonging to H.G. Molenaar & Co (Pty) Ltd., a firm in South Africa.  The deal enabled JBT to offer global customers an even broader range of equipment for the canned food industry. In addition, JBT has acquired several key companies on the protein processing side, including Formcook AB, Wolf-tec, Tipper Tie, C.A.T.  and Novus.  On the Liquid Foods side of the business, JBT has also made key acquisitions, including:  ICS Solutions, Stork Food & Dairy Systems and A&B Process Systems. 



    Geographic Reach

    JBT owns production facilities spanning almost 25 countries.  Its principal production facilities are located in the U.S. (California, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arkansas, Utah and Florida), Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, the U.K., South Africa and China.  The U.S. alone accounts for about half of its sales.  Other major markets include the EMEA region (28 percent), Asia/Pacific (12 percent), Latin America (8 percent) and Canada (2 percent).  JBT sells its FoodTech products to more than 100 countries.
