Experienced and innovative with a wealth of know-how: PHOENIX has launched its advanced mining solutions and services in the NAFTA markets.
FAIRLAWN, Ohio, April 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- On January 30, international automotive supplier and industrial partner Continental concluded its acquisition of the U.S. industrial rubber company Veyance Technologies Inc, of Fairlawn, Ohio. The Goodyear Engineered Products Conveyor Belt mining brand, in the North American region, is now branded PHOENIX Conveyor Belt Systems. The new business will be an important part of the global PHOENIX conveyor belt portfolio. "PHOENIX has always been a pioneer and industry leader in the development and manufacture of conveyor belts, bringing over 100 years worth of experience to the market," describes Bret Hall, who oversees the mining business in the NAFTA region. "The company is recognized worldwide as a specialist in providing customized solutions for highly complex applications. We are now joining forces with Veyance's Conveyor Belt Mining business which has also been in the mining industry for 100 years." PHOENIX is known worldwide for its claim of "Extreme Conveyor Belt Solutions" and has achieved an abundance of world records in conveying solutions around the globe. The first appearance of the newly launched PHOENIX brand in NAFTA will be at the International Coal Prep 2015 trade show from April 27 to 29 at the Lexington Center, Lexington, KY. "To learn more about PHOENIX and its wide range of specialized solutions, visitors should come see us at booth 105," Hall continues.
PHOENIX Conveyor Belt Systems has produced conveyor belts, that include world records such as the strongest belts, both textile and steel cord, the steepest overland, and the world's heaviest belt. The brand serves the worldwide bulk material handling industry from international production facilities.
The best solution for every application
Ranging from steel cord to textile conveyor belts and specialized solutions as well as protection systems, PHOENIX covers the full spectrum of the conveyor belt business. For example, for the last sixty years, PHOENIX has manufactured the PHOENOCORD steel cord conveyor belt. PHOENOCORD's outstanding properties include high breaking strength coupled with high capacity as well as a long working life reducing the need for costly maintenance. For specialized solutions, S-Wall is the latest in a long line of industry leading innovations introduced by PHOENIX. The corrugated sidewall belts are suitable for vertical conveyance at angles of up to 90 degrees. They are ideal for applications within confined spaces. A newly developed rubber compound for the corrugated sidewalls and cleats ensures that they cope with the high demands of steep angle conveying. These hard-wearing materials can significantly increase the service life of the belt and prevent time-intensive maintenance and repair work. "These are just two examples of the rich portfolio of products that PHOENIX has to offer for the mining market in the NAFTA region," Hall emphasizes and continues, "We are now looking forward to working with our customers closer than ever."
PHOENIX Conveyor Belt Systems GmbH is a global technology leader for the design and production of tailor-made conveyor belt systems for the mining sector and other industries. Headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, PHOENIX is an international group company that is more than 150 years old. Since 2005 the brand is part of international automotive supplier and industrial partner Continental. In addition to further locations in Germany, PHOENIX is present in India, China as well as in the NAFTA region.
