Superior Industries Inc. announced it finalized its intended acquisition of Belen, N.M.-based CEMCO Inc. As part of the sale, Superior attained a 147,500-sq.-ft. manufacturing facility in the heart of the American Southwest.
“This acquisition comes at a time when we’re responding to dealers and increasing manufacturing capacity,” said Jason Adams, president of Superior Industries. “The New Mexico facility will be the new home to all of Superior’s impact crushers, increase portable plant manufacturing by about 40%, and give us more room to strengthen stock of critical components.”
The Cemco VSI name and design aren’t going anywhere, said Superior, as the pioneering vertical shaft impactor is widely used and very popular in the production of cube-shaped aggregate. Going forward, the company will be rebranded as Superior Industries, but the Cemco VSI name will live on as a trademark for Superior’s VSI crushers.
“The facility is awesome, the VSI is a high-grade performer, but it’s those hard-working men and women of Belen, N.M., that we’re most blessed to have in our expanded company,” said Adams. “In fact, we want to double the amount of employees in Belen as soon as we can.”
