Ammeraal Beltech acquired its long-standing Australian distribution partner Rydell Industrial (Belting) Co.
The company will operate for the time being as Rydell Beltech Pty Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ammeraal Beltech.
Based in Melbourne, Victoria, Rydell has seven additional branches across Australia:
Kings Park, New South Wales
Darra, Queensland – Uni Modular Division
Dry Creek, South Australia
Malaga, Western Australia
The experienced and committed local Team of 88 people will continue to be led by current Managing Director Wayne Durdin, reporting into Ammeraal Beltech’s Asia Pacific (APAC) operations.
‘As part of the Ammeraal Beltech group, Rydell is committed to the same mission of being a total solutions provider for all of its customers’ belting needs, by continuing to offer one of the most complete belting product ranges in the market, trusted technical advice and dedicated 24/7 customer service. Our Australia-wide team is excited by the acquisition and now looks forward to the challenges and opportunities as we integrate within the Global Ammeraal Team’
This strategic combination brings together with the strengths of Ammeraal, a global leader in lightweight process and conveyor belting, with those of Rydell, the leading and reference belting company in Australia.
Jordi Crusafon, Head of Sales & Service EMEA and APAC:
‘We strongly welcome this move. The strategy of Rydell, being a solution provider with a strong customer intimacy, supported by their Industry Focus and One-Stop Shop approach, matches perfectly with the strategy of Ammeraal Beltech and therefore is a perfect addition to our family strengthening the Group’s position in Oceania’
