Continental consolidates conveyor brands

All products from Continental-owned brands such as Phoenix, IMAS, Kolubara, LEGG, Matador and National Belt Service will be integrated into one broad product and service portfolio.

The move is part of Continental’s strategy to improve simplicity, availability and expertise globally.

Continental Conveying Solutions business unit head, Hannes Friederichsen, said Continental’s customers will benefit from a stronger and trusted global product portfolio from a single source.

“Thus, we will further be joining forces to continue our customer-centric business approach,” he said.

In addition to consolidating the company’s assets under a single brand, Continental will also extend its belts and digital product portfolios.

Continental Service Segment Vice President Andreas Bakenhus said the company sees fast changing requirements in its markets.

“A few years ago, our customers asked for high-quality, long-life belts. Now, construction, industry and mining companies are looking for safety, quality, efficiency and productivity gains,” Bakenhus said.

“Our customers are requiring integrated solutions covering the entire value chain around a belt from commissioning, consulting and training to digital monitoring and on-site maintenance. Additionally, energy-optimised belts, new business models and sustainability aspects will play a crucial and competitive role in the future”

“Basically, we understand it as our job to offer service levels that allows our customers to fully concentrate on their core business.”

Beyond that, Continental will extend its support to their regional distributors with an extended offering of service-related products and digital tools. Continental continues to develop value adding digital solutions and services, such as the new drone-based monitoring solution for conveyor systems that will be launch to the market in 2021.
