Superior Industries says it has signed a new partnership with AMPCO Minerals that will lead to the design and manufacture of a complete line of bulk material processing and handling equipment for customers outside of North America.
The investment into the China-based manufacturer of crushing, screening, washing and conveying equipment furthers Superior’s vision of growing a global brand, it said.
Jarrod Felton, President of Superior Industries, said: “Whether it’s application advice, service response or manufacturing efforts, our goal is to be closer to our customers. This partnership allows us to continue improving our results for them.”
Working in a new purpose-built factory in Shanghai, Superior intends to design and manufacture this line of bulk material processing and handling equipment for customers outside of 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,” Felton said. “They are accomplished professionals that people in our industry know and trust.”
Meanwhile, the Shanghai-based production facility will improve responsiveness, reliability and quality of Superior’s North American supply chain. US and Canada-based plants will have new access to a dependable, high-quality chain of supply partner for select crushing and screening components, the company said.
