Materials Handling Equipment

The original bulk Materials Handling Equipment Company (MHE) was formed in 1927 in Chicago, Ill., to support the demands of expanding industries. New process techniques generated the need for high quality custom-built bulk handling equipment. MHE expanded its product line to focus on specific Industry needs, including bucket elevators, drag conveyors, and screw conveyors. Cement plants and power plants (ash handling) require special conveyors for hot and abrasive materials, while the coal industry requires special corrosive protection. MHE is one of the leaders in this market and pioneers many of the state-of-the-art features and innovations used today for high temperature, high abrasion, and corrosive applications. One of the original founding members of the Conveyors Equipment Manufacturers Association.
