Two es­tab­lished con­veyor belt brands join forces

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MATERIALS HANDLING -

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.
