BEUMER Group fully commits to Canada following acquisition of FAM

  • Minerals & Mining

Canadian customers now enjoy the full BEUMER Group portfolio

Somerset, NJ USA, February 21, 2024 – BEUMER Group, a leading global supplier of automated material handling systems, has extended its North America hub with the assimilation of the former FAM operations in Calgary, Alberta. The move follows the acquisition of FAM Minerals & Mining GmbH last year. Now known as BEUMER Group Canada, the former FAM has become an integral part of the BEUMER family. With the much stronger emerging organization in Canada BEUMER will offer its full range of automated material handling solutions and services. This milestone demonstrates BEUMER Group’s long-term commitment to Canada’s customers and represents a significant investment into the region.

Markus Schmidt, CEO BEUMER Group North America, comments: “FAM has built a strong reputation within the global mining and minerals industry on which we will build to expand business across North America. At the same time, we have now formed a strong company in Canada to further expand our business not only in the Mineral & Mining field but also in Airports, Logistics Solutions, Products and Customer Support. Following the acquisition of FAM last year, we have been working closely with the team in Canada to improve our customer reach.

Daniel Schmillenkamp, CEO BEUMER Group Canada, added: “BEUMER Group offers global expertise through local presence and customer focus is one of our core values. Our teams are primed to support customers throughout Canada using their industry specific expertise and knowledge of relevant standards and certifications. Our strategically located facility in Calgary enables us to respond quickly and efficiently to support customers in the region, delivering outstanding solutions at every stage of the project life cycle.”
