Superior Industries, Inc., an American-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, acquires Brazilian-based conveyor idler and pulley manufacturer, Parcan Group.
“It was rewarding to find a company with a strong cultural history of hard work and innovation, which is so similar to Superior Industries,” commented Jarrod Felton, the Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Engineering at Superior. “We are confident the innovative products from both our companies will create more positive opportunities for all of our customers, both domestically and internationally.”
The group, headquartered in Rafard, São Paulo, manufactures three models of conveyor idlers. A heavy-duty line, a light to medium duty line and a style dedicated for high impact situations. It also builds conveyor pulleys for belt widths of 650 mm (24 in.) to 2400 mm (96 in.) and is equipped to refurbish used pulleys. A group of in-house engineers create custom products for atypical customer applications.
Parcan also has a reputation for being a technical solution’s specialist. Per client requests, teams from the company are dispatched to mines for conveyor inspections and evaluations, often proposing ideas to extend the life of machinery investments. Onsite mine visits are key for Parcan’s technical staff to evaluate product, reexamine calculations and develop improved products from the learned data.
