EUGENE, ORE. -- Bulk Handling Systems is boosting its world presence with the acquisition of Nihot Recycling Technology BV, a designer and manufacturer of controlled air separation systems based in Amsterdam.

Eugene, Ore.-based BHS designs, manufactures and installs sorting systems and components for the solid waste, recycling, waste-to-energy, construction and demolition industries. It has worked with Nihot for a number of years, according to a statement from BHS CEO Steve Miller.
