Multotec Manufacturing, a member of the Multotec Group of companies, has acquired the business operation and assets of Unique Engineering’s Wedgewire Division.

Derrick Alston, managing director of Multotec Manufacturing, says that the acquisition further strengthens the company’s position as a supplier of wedgewire products.

“The majority of Unique Engineering’s customer base is similar to that of Multotec’s,” Alston says, adding that there will be little disruption to normal manufacturing activities and the wedgewire production equipment, stocks and manpower is being consolidated at Multotec’s Spartan facility.

Multotec Manufacturing operates a modern custom designed cylindrical welding machine and produces wedgewire cylinders for all types of mechanically and air-swept interstage screens.
