Screening supplier W.S. Tyler has announced that it is rebranding and taking on the name of its parent company, Haver & Boecker.
The company said the goal of the name change is to align the brands and communicate the broader scope of solutions that Haver & Boecker provides.
“Haver & Boecker has a long, established history of servicing not only the mining, aggregate and industrial minerals industries, but also the cement, chemical, building materials and food industries worldwide,” W.S. Tyler president Karen Thompson said. “In addition to our screening, washing and pelletizing equipment, the new portfolio also will include packing, liquid filling, palletizing, loading and storage technology. The move to the Haver & Boecker name represents growth here in North America, and most importantly, more value to our customers.”
In a statement, the firm said that its team of screening experts will maintain its focus on W.S. Tyler customers, while new teams are added to support new technologies.
W.S. Tyler was founded in 1872 by Washington Samuel Tyler in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1930 it opened a plant in St. Catherines, Ont., where the company’s Canadian operations are based today.
Founded in 1887, privately owned Haver & Boecker is headquarterd in Oelde, Germany, and is comprised of two divisions: wire weaving and machinery. The firm employs 2,900 people worldwide.
