Curt Snyder acquires assets of Bradley Pulverizer through an affiliate, effective 14 January 2020
BRADLEY Pulverizer, specialists in the design, manufacture and supply of pulverizing systems for fine and semi-fine grinding of hard, friable, abrasive materials, have been acquired by Curt Snyder, owner, president and chief executive officer of Lancaster Products and Kercher Enterprises.
Lancaster Products design and build mixing, pelletizing and crushing solutions for a wide variety of industries and materials, whilst Kercher Enterprises specialize in machining, laser cutting, welding, fabrication, and complex machine assembly. Both are based in Lebanon, Pennsylvania.
Explaining the reasons for the acquisition, Mr Snyder said: ‘The synergies of both companies can offer a wider range of material processing equipment that often work together in the same process line.
‘Bradley’s line of pulverizers and mill classifiers complement Lancaster Products’ mixing, granulating and crushing capabilities to connect customers with a greater array of complete solutions and services that go beyond customer expectations.
‘Bradley Pulverizer also have a strong international presence spearheaded by their UK office which gives Lancaster Products greater reach to international markets. The manufacturing capabilities are extremely complementary which will benefit both companies tremendously.’
Bradley Pulverizers’ US and UK divisions will continue to operate normally while the international sales force will remain independent but working in collaboration to offer the Lancaster Products line of industrial equipment.
Curt Snyder will be president and chief executive officer of Bradley Pulverizer Enterprises Inc. Lancaster Products and Kercher Enterprises, while David Fronheiser, former Bradley Pulverizer Company president, will continue in an advisory capacity.
