Weba Chute Systems has appointed FWS Bulk Material Handling as the official distributor of its technology in Canada.

The signing of this latest licence agreement comes only a few months after the chute system specialist signed up Somex as a licensee in Russia.

Mark Baller, managing director of Weba Chute Systems, says the synergy between the two companies bodes well for a successful long-term partnership.

"FWS Bulk Material Handling has an (enviable) track record with its teams spread across western Canada, and the extensive design-build experience within the company as well as the knowledge of project execution across a broad range of industries played a major role in our decision to enter into a formal agreement," Baller says.

Weba has previously supplied its custom engineered chute systems to the North American market where these have been used in the power generation and mining sectors. Baller says, while the company has a sound understanding of the needs of this region, it is also looking forward to working closely with FWS Bulk Material Handling in servicing other sectors including agriculture, bulk storage and export terminals, food processing and railways.

He says: "Our transfer points are definitely not off-the-shelf products and, while anyone can do the basics, when it comes to the technical side of designing a transfer chute, it is not an exact science and there is simply no single solution for materials transfer."

Weba Chute Systems has more than 4,500 transfer point systems successfully operating in countries across the world. The company has a comprehensively equipped manufacturing facility at its South African-based head office, and this is underpinned by its team of skilled and competent engineers, it says.
