The two world-leading suppliers in belting technology – Ammeraal Beltech and Megadyne Group – who came together in a merger in September of 2018, have taken another important step in their integration. In December of 2018, they have announced a new corporate name for their joint operations: AMMEGA.
The integration of these two companies to effectively create a new belting champion spanning industrial power transmission belting and lightweight conveyor belting is ongoing, and continues apace. The new name of AMMEGA will serve principally to unite all of its employees under a common identity and corporate vision and mission. In view of their well-established reputations in their respective markets and their different channel-to-market strategies, which will remain unchanged, their two strong brand names – Ammeraal Beltech and Megadyne – will remain as is.
“Ensuring continuity, especially in the way we serve our valued customers, is a top priority” explains Marc Maisonneuve, AMMEGA’s Corporate Marketing Director.
A new website was launched to promote AMMEGA (www.ammega.com) and to explain the rationale of the merger as well as its benefits to its customers.
Under the AMMEGA umbrella, the two brands will benefit from their synergies, and will combine their knowledge, research and development activities, business systems, and, of course, their people, to enhance their level of customer service and technology.
