Rulli Rulmeca acquires the Bulk Business Units of Interroll Group

Rulli Rulmeca S.p.A., the leading European manufacturer of rollers and components for bulk material handling, has finalised the acquisition of the “Bulk” Business Units of the Interroll Group. This was composed of four companies specialising in the production of equipment for belt conveyors in bulk handling applications.

The 4 companies will immediately take the name of Rulmeca as follows:

• Rulmeca FAA Gmbh. With premises located in Aschersleben, Germany, they manufacture motorized pulleys in diameters from 216 to 800mm, and fabricated pulleys and heavy duty rollers with shaft diameters up to 90mm for the brown-coal industry.

• Rulmeca Espaa S.L. A company located in Barbera del Valls (Barcelona) and manufacturer of mainly Rulmeca PSV types of rollers for the Spanish market.

• Rulmeca UK Ltd. A company located in Corby, UK, and manufacturer of mainly Rulmeca PSV types of rollers for Great Britain.

• Rulmeca Thailand Co. Ltd. A company located in Bangkok, Thailand, who manufacture mainly Rulmeca PSV type of rollers for Thai markets and parts of South-East Asia.

Through this acquisition the Rulmeca Group strengthens its international presence (already represented thanks to the production units in France, Germany, Portugal, Canada and Venezuela), especially in some traditionally important markets of belt conveyor engineering such as Spain and United Kingdom or for medium-term strategic locations such as the new Thailand Company.

With the acquisition of Rulmeca FAA and their specialised production of motorized pulleys, the Rulmeca Group adds, not only a new product to its portfolio, but also a new technology to its skills when looking ahead to developing the potential of future markets.

Besides the gaining of the Bulk business units, Rulli Rulmeca has also acquired the company SIPA Italia Srl, located in Bassano del Grappa (Vicenza, Italy). This was formally an Italian commercial branch of the Interroll Dynamic Storage Division, they specialise in the supply of components and roller tracks for pallets and light dynamic storage systems, products that will be added to the others already sold by Rulli Rulmeca in Italy.
