World leader in pig handling systems

Over the years, a number of brands have come together to make Marel the company it is today. Each brand has unique technical expertise and decades of experience, allowing Marel to offer a comprehensive portfolio of equipment and solutions.


We have more than 35 years’ of experience in the development, design and production of CO2-Stunning Systems.


This originally started in 1972 in Copenhagen, Denmark, when engineer Klaus Haumann established the company Butina.


Over several decades Butina went from strength to strength to become a world leading supplier of integrated systems for handling, CO2-stunning, blood collection and blood processing in abattoirs.


In 2010 Butina became part of the MPS-Group and in 2016 the MPS-Group was acquired by Marel.
