Tandem is a family-owned polyurethane producer of high-quality open cast screen media and liners for the mining, concrete, industrial and grain industries with more than 40 years of application experience.
The two companies say the joint venture is the result of many years of successful sales and production partnership between the two family-owned businesses and represents the mutual respect and core value alignment between the shareholders.
Haver & Boecker Niagara said in a statement: "The companies bring together a focus on high-quality products, innovative engineering and a unique customer solution-driven market approach. The combined worldwide sales channels and expansion of Haver & Boecker Niagara to a North American polyurethane manufacturer further support the OEM’s business motivation and will benefit both companies’ plans for growth."
Tandem Products will continue to serve current and new customers with the well-known Rhino-Hyde brand, as well as with modular polyurethane screen media which will carry the Niagara brand. Niagara open cast polyurethane products have been manufactured at Haver & Boecker Niagara in Brazil for a number of years now, and this move rounds out the Niagara screen media brand for the mineral processing leader.
Haver & Boecker Niagara's parent company, Haver & Boecker OHG, is a fifth-generation family-owned business with roots in industries including mining, minerals, aggregates, cement, construction materials, fertilisers, salt and recycling.
