US firm invests in experienced Shanghai-based manufacturer to improve global coverage
SUPERIOR Industries Inc, the US-based manufacturers and global suppliers of bulk material processing and handling systems, have announced a new partnership with AMPCO Minerals, manufacturers of crushing, screening, washing and conveying equipment, to further their vision of growing a global brand.
‘Whether it’s application advice, service response or manufacturing efforts, our goal is to be closer to our customers,’ said Jarrod Felton, president of Superior Industries. ‘This partnership allows us to continue improving our results for them.’
Working in a brand-new purpose-built factory in Shanghai, Superior will design and manufacture a complete line of bulk material processing and handling equipment for customers outside North America.
‘This is an investment in a team whose core members each have more than 30 years of experience developing crushing and screening technology for our markets,’ said Mr Felton. ‘They are accomplished professionals that people in our industry know and trust.’
Superior say the Shanghai-based production facility will also improve the responsiveness, reliability and quality of their North American supply chain, with US and Canadian-based plants having new access to a dependable, high-quality chain-of-supply partner for select crushing and screening components.
