Spiroflow acquires Canadian bulk materials handling specialist

World Cement,

UK conveying and weighing systems manufacturer Spiroflow Ltd has increased its presence in Canada and North America with the purchase of Ontario-based Control & Metering. The company was acquired through Spiroflow Ltd’s subsidiary Spiroflow Systems, Inc.

Control & Metering is a bulk materials handling specialist and one of the first manufacturers in North America to produce bulk bag fillers and unloaders. The acquisition will allow Spiroflow to benefit from both the experience of Control & Metering’s staff, as well as its ownership of patented Bulk Bag Filling and Discharging technology.

“This latest acquisition brings significant benefits to Spiroflow and our customers,” said Rob Hudson, Managing Director at Spiroflow. “First of all we gained a full order book, which we immediately began to fulfill so that customers experienced minimal disruption. We will also enjoy an expanded presence in Canada, which will enable us to broaden our sales, engineering, manufacturing and services capabilities for our continually growing global customer base”.
