In January of 2009, McLanahan Corporation purchased an existing urethane operation in Florida. The company primarily produced abrasion resistant mining components for the Southeast region of the United States.
As a result of this purchase, the Polymer Division was created. Investment is now proceeding to expand this operations capability. The Polymer Division of McLanahan Corporation has officially become the 6th Operating Division among the many diversified industries that we now service.
Currently, the Polymer Division is operating out of Lakeland, Florida, and continues its manufactured sales of products into the traditional southeast mining environment along with the addition of many wear components used by the McLanahan Aggregate Processing Division.
These components include sizing & dewatering screen panels, screw washer shoes, sand classifier valves, seats, downspouts, chute liners, impact pads, log washer paddles, cyclone liners, and vortex finders; along with trommel screens, paddles, lifters, and restrictors.
McLanahan says that it will supply its companies’ internal needs, but it also plans to supply other markets both domestic and foreign, which has begun with the company’s distribution into Latin America.
“We are very excited to increase our product offerings to our customers and expand our opportunities for the future. The Polymer Division will also allow us to become a more vertically integrated company,” said Sean McLanahan, vice president of McLanahan Corp., in a written statement.
