April 15, 2013

Martin Engineering and CCC Group, two global innovators in bulk material handling technologies, have formed a strategic alliance specifically to design and manufacture state-of-the-art conveyor solutions for engineered transfer points.

The announcement comes from Martin Engineering, a world leader in making bulk material handling cleaner, safer, and more productive, in partnership with CCC Group, an internationally-recognized general contractor that delivers construction, manufacturing, design, and engineering services.  

CCC will design, engineer, and install the chutes, with Martin Engineering delivering the transfer point components, including load zone and settling zone. “CCC will take the lead on all projects, with Martin support during system specification, design, installation, and commissioning,” explained Martin Engineering USA managing director Mark Huhn. “We will be providing components such as impact cradles, engineered chute walls, and trackers, as well as skirting and sealing technologies.”

The primary benefit to customers will be a specific focus on transfer points involving two pioneers in material handling technologies. “CCC’s focus and engineering expertise in chute design will be complemented by Martin’s experience and innovation in product design and service,” Huhn continued. He added that the two partners will initially be targeting coal-fired power, mining, aggregates, biomass, and ports applications, eventually expanding into other industries and materials.
