Superior Industries, a manufacturer and supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, recently announced that it is buying CEMCO, a 60-year-old manufacturing company and originator of the modern Vertical Shaft Impact (VSI) crusher. CEMCO’s customer base is engaged in the aggregates, recycling, mining and energy markets worldwide, and its original VSI is still in service in New Mexico.

“We’re honored that the Hise family has trusted us to carry on an incredible legacy they worked very hard to create,” stated Jason Adams, president of Superior Industries. “Our care for employees, customers, and the Belen community will continue to be strong.”

With the addition of the CEMCO’s VSI line, its 140,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in New Mexico, and dozens of experienced employees, Superior says it is taking another step in its goal of providing more opportunities for dealers and a more diverse portfolio of proven products for producers.

Based in Morris, Minn., Superior Industries supplies bulk crushing, screening, washing and conveying systems, as well as related parts and services to such industries as aggregates and mining. The company has a Canadian manufacturing plant in Miramichi, N.B., as well as four additional U.S. facilities, and factories in Brazil and China.
