McLanahan Corporation has announced Alan Bennetts as the company’s new global product manager for washing and classifying.

As a global product manager Bennetts will provide leadership, direction, and oversight to the evaluation, design, development, engineering, training and support needed to help develop and grow profitable sales of filter presses and thickeners. He brings nearly 25 years of experience in the mineral and aggregate industry, having served in a wide array of roles with equipment manufacturers and mining companies throughout the United States.

Bennetts began his career as a metallurgist, responsible for planning and laboratory procedural development and analysis. He then moved to the process side of things, over-seeing daily operations of a plant and its personnel. During this time, he was responsible for control system design and upgrade, trouble-shooting existing control systems, and management of site-wide projects. Most recently, Bennetts was a product manager for Weir Minerals. He is a 1996 graduate of the University of Montana where he received his Bachelor of Science in metallurgical engineering.

“We are very excited to have Alan join us; as a qualified metallurgist with years of in-plant experience in multiple minerals, plus his depth of understanding of the aggregates market, Alan brings a wealth of knowledge,” said John Best, product group manager. “Alan’s long experience in cyclones, hydrosizers, FB classifiers, attrition cells, and dewatering screens is an ideal fit as one of our global product management team helping to better serve our global customers.”


Headquartered in Hollidaysburg, Penn., McLanahan Corporation offers over 180 years of experience in providing processing solutions to a variety of materials handling industries.
