Kreyenborg Industries, the North American sales and service arm of Kreyenborg GmbH of Munster, Germany, is on pace to double its 2003 sales this year, according to Warren Kim, sales manager.
Kreyenborg makes continuous screen changers, extrusion gear pumps and underwater pelletizers.
Kim said the company's Valuline continuous screen changer, introduced at NPE 2003, is doing well. Positioned as a lower-priced alternative to Kreyenborg's custom-built K-SWE, it was designed to target the large market segment dominated by lower-priced, semi-continuous, slide plate screen changers.
Kim said the firm does not give specific sales figures. He said Lawrenceville, Ga.-based Kreyenborg Industries employs five.
The overall Kreyenborg Group is launching several new products this year. BKG GmbH, the underwater pelletizer member of the group, recently announced the CrystallCut, a patented technology that allows for on-line crystallization for PET production. Also, the recycling division is more aggressively marketing the Infrared Rapid Dryer in North America.
Kreyenborg's product lines can be demonstrated at its in-house pilot line in Lawrenceville.
