FWS Bulk Material Handling has been appointed as the official distributor for Weba Chute Systems and Solutions in Canada.
Weba Chute Systems said that the signing of this latest licence agreement underpins the South African OEM’s strategy of extending its global reach.
Mark Baller, managing director of Weba Chute Systems, said that the synergy between the two companies bodes well for a successful long-term partnership.
“FWS Bulk Material Handling has an equitable track record with its teams spread across Western Canada, and the extensive design-build experience within the company as well the knowledge of project execution across a broad range of industries played a major role in our decision to enter into a formal agreement,” said Baller.
Notably, Weba has previously supplied its custom-engineered chute systems to the North American market, where these have been used in the power generation and mining sectors. Baller said that, while the company has a sound understanding of the needs of this region, it is also looking forward to working closely with FWS Bulk Material Handling in services other sectors including agriculture, bulk storage and export terminals, food processing and railways.
“Years of experience, hard won expertise and skill are the major differentiators that allow Weba Chute Systems to produce transfer point systems engineered specifically for a given application requirement,” said Baller.
“Our transfer points are definitely not off-the-shelf products and, while anyone can do the basics when it comes to the technical side of designing a transfer chute, it is not an exact science and there is simply no single solution for materials transfer.”
