February 22, 2017Martin Engineering, one of the world’s leading companies in the field of conveyor technology, has announced its acquisition of the German company CleanScrape GmbH.  Less than a year after Martin Engineering took over the exclusive distribution of the award-winning belt scraper, both company owners agreed to the sale.

CleanScrape GmbH was founded in 2014 to supply and further develop conveyor belt cleaning technology.  The business emerged from the company IBS Industrial Machinery Mining Service GmbH (Industriemaschinen-Bergbau-Service GmbH), which has been active for more than 30 years in mining, tunnel construction and conveyor technology.  IBS and CleanScrape are a part of the Schmittgruppe, a fourth-generation, family-run business with headquarters in the northern Bavarian town of Bischofsheim an der Rhön.

“CleanScrape GmbH will continue existing as a separate company, with all of the jobs and existing senior management remaining in place,” explained Michael Hengl, Managing Director of Martin Engineering Europe.

CleanScrape GmbH will be an integral part of the Martin Engineering family in the future, and integration of IT structures and management has been completed.  “With the acquisition of CleanScrape GmbH we have received a great product and a highly skilled and motivated team,” Hengl continued.
