Superior Industries, Inc., a Minnesota-based manufacturer bulk material processing and handling systems, announced a pending acquisition of CEMCO, Inc. of Belen, New Mexico. CEMCO is a 60-year-old manufacturing company and originator of the modern Vertical Shaft Impact (VSI) Crusher.

Today, CEMCO is recognized as a premier designer and manufacturer of VSIs. In addition to its crushers, Superior said the company is well-known for outstanding customer service, high-quality manufacturing, and incredible devotion to its employees.

“We’re honored that the Hise family has trusted us to carry on an incredible legacy they worked very hard to create,” said 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, a 140,000-ft2 manufacturing facility in New Mexico, and dozens of experienced employees, Superior takes another step in its goal of providing more opportunities for dealers and a diverse portfolio of proven products for producers. The CEMCO VSI is a much-proven, highly trusted crusher with capacity rates up to 1,500 tons per hour and models ranging from 75 to 1,000 horsepower in single or dual-drive packages.
