Two established conveyor belt brands join forces
Viking Conveyor has acquired Paykel Engineering Services Conveyor and Componentry business. The acquisition sees two businesses join forces to keep goods on the move, from mining sites to food processing plants.
Both companies have a long standing history in the market place with over 100 years of experience between them. Viking Conveyor supplies a comprehensive range of conveyor belt, componentry and rubber lining solutions, across multiple industry sectors, from food to timber processing. While Paykel has a strong focus on the industrial market sector including mining and quarrying.
“The time is right to see two strong conveyor and rubber lining brands join forces to meet changing market conditions. It is exciting times for both businesses, with two experienced teams merging to support customers with a wider product range and technical support,” said General Manager Rod McAneaney. “Viking Conveyor is strong in the lightweight market sector, which complements Paykel focus on the heavy weight market sector.”
The key focus for the businesses is to ensure that New Zealand companies continue to have access to the best conveyor belt, componentry and rubber lining solutions to meet their project or plant requirements. It is all about creating efficient and effective systems so goods can move smoothly from one stage of processing to the next. “Choosing the right conveyor belt, componentry or rubber lining solution is one of the most important decisions a business can make. The acquisition further enhances our ability to provide the right technical and sales support to our customers,” concluded Mr McAneaney.
