With the acquisition of the Hendrik Group – one of the leading companies for air-supported belt conveyors – the BEUMER Group has expanded its portfolio in bulk material transport, particularly the handling of alternative fuels and raw materials.
“The Hendrik Group specializes in the efficient and environmentally friendly transport of bulk materials. This aligns very well with our goals of bringing sustainable products to the market and improving our customers’ carbon footprint,” said CEO Markus Schmidt in June.
The BEUMER Group has been established in the market for decades with innovative bulk material technologies and the air-supported belt conveyors ideally complements the BEUMER portfolio. In the very core of the technology, an air cushion is used to support the belt and the load. The result is a weatherproof and dustproof transport solution that is quiet, clean and efficient.
“In recent years, we have often had constructive discussions with the Hendrik Group about international cooperation in the field of air-supported belt conveying systems. The acquisition of this internationally successful company is the logical consequence of these constructive discussions,” said Kay Wieczorek, head of the Center of Competence (CoC) Product Business of the BEUMER Group.
“The qualitative expansion of our products is a great opportunity for us: we will continue to develop the groundbreaking technology of air supported belt conveyors for our customers and in terms of sustainability.”
