Earlier this year, 35-year industry veteran Peter Patterson become the newest member of our equipment sales team and greater Superior family. Peter comes to Superior after most recently holding a position in sales at Metso. He started his career in bulk handling at 3M. Peter joins our team in Canada as we expand our ability to better serve our northern neighbors. Here’s a timeline of Superior’s evolving presence in Canada after just two short years.
April 20, 2015: Acquisition of Clemro Western
Based in Calgary, Alberta, the 30-year-old company is known for manufacturing crushers, screens and feeders. The addition of these lines allows us to increase our bulk handing and processing portfolio. In addition, the acquisition was appealing because of Clemro’s heritage as a family-owned and operated company with a history of high production values and technological advances. The operation gives Superior a manufacturing presence in Northwest North America.
May 01, 2015: MFE Manufacturing Purchase
Family owned and operated since 1947, MFE, which is now branded as Superior Industries, designs and builds portable plants for aggregate production and is headquartered in Miramichi, New Brunswick. The acquisition allows us to boost our existing offering of portable plant designs. In addition, the 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.
June 03, 2015: Patrice Briand Joins Team
Briand has been affiliated with the aggregates industry since 1990 and was appointed territory sales manager in Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. He comes to Superior after most recently holding the title of Environmental and Recycling Manager at Voghel, Inc.
