KMEC Engineering & Conveying Systems, a subsidiary of Purvis Industries, has acquired the assets, trademarks, brand rights, patents, and intellectual property of TWE dba PICOR. PICOR is a design and engineering company in bulk material truck and train Precision Loading Systems. PICOR also produces telescoping chutes, mass flow gates, diverter gates, clamshell gates and slide gates.

Tony Walker, president and head engineer of PICOR, will join the KMEC team. He is responsible for the development of patents for multiple batch systems, methods for loading railcars of a wide range of capacities and designs, coal loading systems, and variable height silo charging systems. He is also the designer of the Walker Reclaimer, which revolutionized the storage and reclamation of bulk material stockpiles with less equipment and significantly reduced operating costs, KMEC said. Tony will be working with the team to further develop PICOR designs and integrate them into KMEC’s complete bulk material handling solutions.

PICOR will operate inside the KMEC Engineering and Conveying platform, providing and expanding its material flow and loading solutions.

“We believe that PICOR will greatly expand both the market reach and total system capabilities of our KMEC business by adding unparalleled expertise in truck and train loading systems, as well as the integration of the new Walker Reclaimer,” said Cameron Barker, vice president of corporate operations for Purvis Industries.

Purvis Industries is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, and is one of the largest independent bearing and power transmission distributors in the United States.
