HOLLAND, MICH. (June 22, 10:20 a.m. ET) — National Bulk Equipment Inc., which makes dry-material handling systems, has purchased General Processing Systems Inc. makers of the ProductSaver packaged material reclamation systems.
“ProductSaver packaged material reclamation enables processing and packaging operations to recover not only packaging material, but also the dry or wet contents from packages that may be off-spec, mislabeled, or for other reasons unsalable,” said Todd Reed, president of NBE in Holland. The equipment completely separates the contents from the packaging, reclaiming the contents and recovering the packaging for recycling.
Jeff Swiatlo, former president of General Processing Systems in Oswego, Ill., is now directing ProductSaver sales activities.
NBE manufacturers a range of material handling equipment, including bag dischargers and unloaders, bulk bag fillers and container dischargers.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
