BUFORD, Ga.—In the fall of this year, Ammeraal Beltech Inc., the conveyor belt segment of Ammega Group, will see its most recent major capital investment come to fruition as its 11th global manufacturing site and fifth facility in the U.S. begins operations.
The $19 million, 125,000-sq.-ft. facility in Hall County will produce lightweight rubber belts for a range of industries, with a specific focus on the food and logistics spaces, and create 83 jobs in Hall County, the company said May 5.
"We are excited to expand our Americas' infrastructure to provide a new level of service and response to our distributor and OEM customer base," said Niels van den Boogert, vice president and general manager of Ammeraal Beltech Conveying Solutions.
Alkmaar, Netherlands-based Ammeraal employs 2,750 people globally across 90 sites. Ammeraal is one of three major segments for Ammega Group, which was formed in 2018 when Megadyne Group, a power transmission company, merged with Ammeraal Beltech. Ammega later added Jason Industrial, its fluid power segment.
