Supplier adds tracking company to growing offering.

The DUBRULLE group, which supplies handling and storing solutions for potatoes and is based in the Hauts De France region in France has acquired French supply chain company, SAALTO.

SAALTO is a pioneer in automatically managing, monitoring and automatically tracking, providing real-time information on stocks and movement. 

Since 1973, the DUBRULLE group has been a major player in the French potato sector. It bought the DOWNS machinery brand in 2006, and shortly after constructed a new factory in Sainte Marie Cappel, northern France.
