“As the focus on sustainability and creating a circular economy within the materials processing industry continues to grow, the need for water recycling and tailings management is more important than ever,” said Cory Jenson, executive vice president of sales and business development at McLanahan.

“This acquisition complements McLanahan’s existing line of tailings and water-management solutions and will allow us to offer more competitive solutions to our customers around the globe.”

Diefenbach will continue to operate as an independent brand in the marketplace and support their customers globally. For the aggregates industry, Diefenbach is partnering with Eagle Iron Works (EIW), another brand in the McLanahan family of companies, to provide a proven line of filter presses and thickeners to EIW customers who are looking to purchase a complete tailings-management and water-recycling solution from a single vendor.

Headquartered in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, United States, McLanahan offers over 188 years of experience providing processing solutions to various materials handling industries.
