Argosy Group Int’l. Acquires Donper America

Argosy Group International, a maker of frozen dessert equipment, has finalized an agreement to acquire Donper America. Both companies are based in Orlando, Fla. AGI’s brands include Argosy, Donper America and Frozen Yogurt Solutions. 

Donper America manufactures self-serve frozen-yogurt equipment. “We entered the soft-serve market because the resurgence of frozen yogurt has energized the category. We believed there was a need for customer-focused innovation,” stated Dan Doromal, v.p.-marketing at Donper America. "If you merge an exponentially growing company in the soft-serve space [Donper America] with industry expertise in engineering and operations [AGI], innovation is a given. The result is a win-win for both companies, as well as the foodservice industry.”

AGI will continue to service current Donper America customers and sell the Donper America brand.
