SOMERSET, NJ – The BEUMER Group has expanded its portfolio in the cement, mining, and bulk material transport industries with the acquisition of The Hendrik Group, a Connecticut-based leader in air-supported belt conveyors.

This acquisition supports the BEUMER Group’s commitment towards sustainability, specifically in the fields of conveying and loading systems, with the air-supported systems offering an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional conveying methods.

Markus Schmidt, CEO of BEUMER Corporation, said, “The Hendrik Group specializes in the efficient and environmentally friendly transport of bulk materials. This aligns very well with our goals of bringing sustainable products to the market and improving our customers’ carbon footprint.”

The Hendrik Group has specialized in air-supported conveying technology since its founding in 1983 in Woodbury, Connecticut by Henk Harksuiker. The company is currently overseen by his son, operations manager Rik Hartsuiker.
