JBT Corporation (NYSE: JBT) announced today that the Company has received orders in excess of $5 million for in-container sterilization technology from a packaged foods company.

JBT will supply a comprehensive rebuild package that will transform and modernize the existing continuous hydrostatic sterilization technology and optimize the performance of the current equipment. This will increase the customer's production flexibility, efficiency and capacity.

"This set of orders represents an excellent opportunity for JBT and is an important win for the newly acquired ICS Solutions business under the JBT banner," said Steve Smith, President, JBT FoodTech. "It demonstrates how we partner with our customers to tailor high-capacity solutions that retain the highest quality and the lowest cost per unit of production."

The Company anticipates installing equipment starting in the second quarter of 2015, with systems operational by the third quarter of 2015.
