Tenova TAKRAF, a global mining and bulk material handling equipment supplier, has recently acquired the assets of USA-based FMC Technologies, a supplier of material handling systems based in Lansdale, Pennsylvania.

Tenova TAKRAF is an integrated solutions provider to the global mining, bulk material handling, minerals processing and beneficiation industries, offering technological solutions and process and commodity knowledge. Following the integration of DELKOR and Tenova Advanced Technologies (formerly Bateman Advanced Technologies) into TAKRAF, the company believes that its product portfolio for minerals processing and beneficiation ‘has been considerably enhanced’.

FMC MHS has been a global leader in materials handling solutions for over a century. The business provides systems expertise in terms of engineering, procurement and construction of complete material handling systems as well as a line of proprietary equipment for rotary drying and cooling of various materials. The company markets on a global scale with installations worldwide including the USA, Canada, Chile, China, India and Australia.

Dr. Frank Hubrich, TAKRAF’s CEO, said that the acquisition brings with it a number of advantages. “We identified a need to add to our equipment portfolio and this opportunity enables us to realize our strategic goals – to strengthen our position in the lighter material handling business and reinforce our growth strategy,” he explained.
