Two global innovators in bulk material handling technologies have formed a strategic alliance specifically to design and manufacture state-of-the-art conveyor solutions for engineered transfer points. The announcement comes from Martin Engineering, a world leader in making bulk material handling cleaner, safer and more productive, in partnership with CCC Group, an internationally-recognized general contractor that delivers construction, manufacturing, design and engineering services.

By the terms of the agreement, CCC will design, engineer and install the chutes, with Martin Engineering delivering the transfer point components, including load zone and settling zone. "CCC will take the lead on all projects, with Martin support during system specification, design, installation and commissioning," explained Martin Engineering USA Managing Director Mark Huhn. "We will be providing components such as impact cradles, engineered chute walls and trackers, as well as skirting and sealing technologies," he said.

The primary benefit to customers will be a very specific focus on transfer points involving two pioneers in material handling technologies. "CCC’s focus and engineering expertise in chute design will be complemented by Martin’s experience and innovation in product design and service," Huhn continued. He added that the two partners will initially be targeting coal-fired power, mining, aggregates, biomass and ports applications, eventually expanding into other industries and materials.

CCC Group is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, serving industries throughout the U.S. and in select overseas markets. The firm currently operates 11 domestic locations and three international facilities, employing approximately 2,500 people in all. The company is a nationwide contractor, holding appropriate licenses and/or registration in all states where it works. Classified as a large corporation, the privately-held firm had an estimated sales volume of over $400 million in 2012. CCC Group has been recognized numerous times throughout its history, including OSHA Star Awards, the ABC National Platinum Safety Training & Evaluation Process Award and the Tampa Electric Company Gold Safety Award.
