The Weir Group has acquired the R. Wales group, a leading Canada-based lining manufacturer, enhancing its capabilities in global mining and oil sands markets. The company is now doing business as R. Wales, Specialty Rubber Products and will be a part of the Weir Minerals Division. With Canadian facilities in British Columbia, Ontario, and a U.S. facility in Arizona, R. Wales designs and manufactures rubber lining for pipes, tanks, chutes and hoses, and specializes in custom rubber- and urethane-molded products. Additional products include high pressure pipes and spools, material conducting hose and gate valves. The acquisition extends Weir’s aftermarket position in the production and servicing of a wide range of rubber lined wear components for the North American oil sands and mining sectors and complements the existing customer base and product portfolio.
