Les Specialites Prodal, a processed meats company located in Quebec, has acquired North Country Smokehouse of Claremont, N.H. According to the New Hampshire Business Review, the company will remain in Claremont, and the business will still be run by President Mike Satzow.

The companies have had business ties for the last 15 years, said Satzow, who said the decision to sell the firm was driven by his firm’s growth over the last several years, which has put a strain on facilities. Satzow said both North Country and Les Specialites Prodal “share the same values when it comes to quality workmanship, respect for our raw materials and a commitment to providing the best possible product to our customers.”

Serge Breton, president of Les Specialites Prodal, said the acquisition of North Country Smokehouse will give the firm access to new markets.
