FENNER DUNLOP ACQUIRES AUSTRALIAN CONVEYOR ENGINEERING (ACE)
We are pleased to announce that on 26th October 2012 Fenner Dunlop Australia (part of the Fenner Dunlop worldwide group of companies) acquired 100% of the share capital of ACE, a privately owned group of companies based in Somersby, NSW.
ACE offer complete solutions for the design, manufacture and installation of high capacity conveyor systems. They specialise in providing engineered conveyor solutions for surface and underground mining clients, with the capacity to take projects from the initial concept to the commissioned conveyor system.
The directors of ACE have been industry leaders in conveyor design, engineering, manufacture and installation for over 25 years, and will continue to manage the business as employees of Fenner Dunlop along with their dedicated staff to ensure the continuity of contact and customer service.
The change in ownership of this long established and well managed company, will not change the level of service offered to its customers, but will enhance the scope of services available by having access to Fenner Dunlop-Australia’s network of 20 branches and more than 500 service personnel, offering a large variety of quality products and services including emergency breakdown situations, and engineered conveyor solutions.
We are passionate about making conveying safe, more reliable and cost effective and this is a significant development for Fenner Dunlop Engineered Conveyor Solutions. This acquisition will strengthen our capabilities to effectively manage the lifetime cost of our customers' conveyors throughout the business cycle. The acquisition further consolidates Fenner Dunlop's position as the leading supplier of conveyor products and services to the Australian markets and complements the acquisition in North America of the Allison Custom Fabrication business.
