Fenner Dunlop, a long-time global leader in conveyer belting for mining and other industrial markets, announced it has acquired Allison Custom Fabrication (ACF), based in Allison, Pa. ACF is an industry leading provider of professional engineering and conveyer system design services for the underground coal mining industry.
The acquisition, when fully integrated, will position Fenner Dunlop to its customers as a single-source solution providing world-class conveyor system engineering and conveyer products. ACF specializes in design, engineering, machining and metal fabrication of made-to-order belt conveyor drive systems/belt terminal groups.
“This significant expansion of Fenner Dunlop to add conveyor system design and manufacturing capabilities to our well-respected conveyer belting products will be a win-win for both the company and our customers,” said Cassandra Pan, President, Fenner Dunlop. “The acquisition of ACF also demonstrates Fenner Dunlop’s commitment to being the supplier of choice in conveying solutions and will relay the benefits of our continual growth to both Fenner Dunlop and ACF customers.”
In the months to come, this acquisition will provide customers with conveyor solutions that improve the reliability of their entire material handling infrastructure, elevate the overall safety of their conveyor systems and help them better predict and manage costs associated with their conveyor systems. The acquisition also strengthens Fenner Dunlop’s future-forward strategy of providing customers with increased risk minimization, product usage compliance, conveyor up time and cost stability while increasing productivity and safety.
“Combining Fenner Dunlop’s and ACF’s offerings will allow our customers to benefit from integrated solution packages from a single source that include system design, system install, after-market components and ongoing service,” said Scott Croftcheck, Vice President, ACF.
