Our origins

“AMECO Group, a Pioneer in Bulk Handling Equipment”

AMECO Group’s origins are rooted in Alsace, a French region that lies in-between the Vosges Mountains and the Rhine River, bordering both Germany and Switzerland. The origins of the French equipment manufacturer AMECO Group lie in the fertilizer and mining industry.

Founded in 1932, the company was part of the Alsatian potash mines. It went from providing maintenance services, to supplying conveyors, and delivering all types of equipment to fulfill specific material handling needs. This technology allowed AMECO to develop into different markets, such as Cement Plants and Electricity Power Plants where bigger storage facilities were required at the time.

In the 1950’s AMECO was one of the few companies from its region providing machinery internationally. This early international vocation is the origin of AMECO’s global presence today. With over 380 references around the globe, this proud business now operates in the cement, commodity food, fertilizer, mining, power generation as well as pulp & paper industry.
