Morris, Minn. — Superior Industries, Inc., a U.S. based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, is proud to announce that Belt Tech Industrial has been named a full line dealer of its growing group of bulk processing and handling equipment. For two decades, the Indiana-based company has distributed Superior’s brand of conveyor components. Now, with this expanded partnership, Belt Tech will additionally sell and service Superior’s crushing, screening, washing and conveying equipment throughout Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee.

“This expanded partnership with Superior allows us to grow our business in a way that will ultimately benefit our customer base,” says Belt Tech CEO, Jordan Russell. “Material producers can expect the same reliable, high-quality customer service that Belt Tech is known for, but we can now support their processing and handling equipment needs as well. It’s great to be able to provide that added value.”

Founded in 1991 by two brothers and since passed down to the next generation of family leadership, Belt Tech Industrial has built a strong name in the industry for honesty, respect, hard work and company pride. According to Superior, these shared values will benefit material producers in the region looking for solid, dependable partnership from their crushing, screening, washing and conveying equipment supplier.

“We have always tried to partner with manufacturers who provide the best possible support, care about their customers and most importantly produce great products,” says Russell. “So when the decision was made to expand our business into processing and handling equipment, Superior became the obvious choice.”

In addition to their home in Washington, Indiana, Belt Tech operates from service locations in Illinois and Kentucky.
