Combining Synergies: Mac Process And Schenck AccuRate Growing Together
Mac Process, North America’s largest supplier of design/build pneumatic conveying and air filtration systems, and Schenck AccuRate, a leader in the manufacture and supply of best-in-class dry material feeders and weighing technologies, announced they will officially join forces as one provider in the marketplace. Both companies are part of the global Schenck Process Group and will be bringing together their synergies going forward on the North American market under the name Schenck Process North America, Inc. In working together, the strengths of both companies will be brought together under one roof, enabling us to strengthen our market position and generating a high level of additional benefit for our customers.
This includes integrated sales teams focused on Light (chemical, food, pharmaceutical and plastics industries) and Heavy (building materials, cement, steel, N-F metal industries) industry segments; manufacturing capability and Lean processes. First and foremost, our customers benefit from innovative products and services from a one-stop shop, regardless of whether it’s pneumatic conveying, weighing, feeding or air filtration.
Effective immediately, Jay Brown will direct the combined business as President and CEO and Dirk Maroske will assume the new role of Chief Operating Officer (COO). Schenck Process North America, Inc. is due to be launched officially on January 1, 2013. The well-established names in the industry – Mac and AccuRate – will remain as brand names. Existing operations in Whitewater, WI; Kansas City, MO; Sabetha, KS; Houston, TX; and Milford, OH will remain largely unchanged.
“We look forward to the growth and profitability that the combined business will provide, along with new opportunities for our customers, employees and Independent Representatives,” said Jay Brown, President and CEO. “This is an exciting step for the Schenck Process Group in North America. We’re able to offer outstanding application knowledge, experienced project management, and superior product solutions that meet today’s challenging requirements.”
“Our customers will benefit from streamlined business processes that enable us to be more responsive,” said Dirk Maroske, COO. “Seamless integration of sales, aftermarket and TestCenter resources will ensure the best possible customer service.”
