Superior acquires MFE Manufacturing
By Andrew Macklin
May 4, 2015 – Superior Industries, Inc. announced its acquisition of MFE Manufacturing. Family owned and operated since its inception in 1947, MFE designs and builds portable plants for construction, aggregates and material handling industries. The 68-year company is headquartered in Miramichi, New Brunswick.
Today, MFE is best known for engineering and fabricating portable processing plants, including jaw and cone crushing systems, screen plants and belt feeders. The company also designs and builds stationary structures for bulk material handling applications. MFE operates from a 25,000 square foot plant at the mouth of the Miramichi River in New Brunswick.
According to Superior, the acquisition allows the manufacturer to boost its existing offering of portable plant designs. In addition, MFE’s location in the northeast adds another, strategically located factory to Superior’s North American portfolio, which includes existing plants in the Northwest, Southwest, Southeast and Midwest. Furthermore, the two companies share similar strategies incorporating the voice of the customer into product designs, including highly mobile equipment designed for fast setup.
