Beumer Group will focus on environmentally friendly bulk material transport.

Beumer Group is expanding its bulk material transport business with the acquisition of The Hendrik Group

In particular, the handling of alternative fuels and raw materials (AFR) confirms Beumer's commitment toward sustainability and is complementary to the current technologies offering. The technology also generates additional potential in the field of bulk material handling of sensitive materials when it comes to preventing hazardous substances from being released into the environment.

The Beumer Group is committed to sustainable corporate development and is always looking at its future-oriented conveying and system technologies for bulk materials. With the now completed acquisition of the Hendrik Group, a leading US manufacturer of air supported belt conveyors, Beumer Group is expanding its portfolio and strengthening its market position in both the cement and the minerals and mining industry.

"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 Markus Schmidt, CEO of Beumer Corp. "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.

The Hendrik Group Manager Rik Hartsuiker believes that his father's many years of experience and expertise in air supported conveying technology are now in the best hands: "We hope my father's legacy is safe in Beumer's care and are confident that they will be as committed to the further development of air supported conveying systems as we were."
