About AMECO Group

Our origins

“AMECO Group, a Pioneer in Bulk Handling Equipment”

Founded in 1932, the company went from providing maintenance services to potash mines in the region where German, Swiss, and French borders meet to supplying conveyors for the fertilizer and mining industry and delivering robust material handling equipment to fulfill new specific needs from our existing customer base. These successful experiences allowed AMECO Group to expand 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 Group 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. In 2020, with over 400 references around the globe, this proud business now operates in the cement, commodity food, fertilizer, mining, power generation as well as pulp & paper industry.
