This technology allows producers to choose the best screen media for the job without being limited by the screen deck.

It was developed specifically to fill a need for producers with flat screen decks who were limited to using modular type screen media, but wanted to use Flex-Mat 3 tensioned screen media. Major Wire says producers can expect to increase open area up to 100 percent or more by converting modular decks to a crowned tensioned deck of Flex-Mat 3.

In addition to its showcasing its existing line of screen media and complementary products, W.S. Tyler’s Jean Leblond talked about the company’s evolving relationship with W.S.Tyler. “Two years ago, I sold 40 percent of the company to Haver & Boecker, which owns W.S. Tyler,” Leblond says. “Now, we’re coming together and not competing anymore. We are only going to have one brand of self-cleaning (screen media) and it will be Flex Mat.”

As the next stage of their joint partnership moves forward, each company will maintain its key North American customers with the following guidelines:

  • W.S. Tyler will continue to serve its key accounts, original equipment manufacturers and all customers requiring fine mesh and synthetic screen media. W.S.Tyler will supply woven wire to Major Wire’s authorized dealers in central and western Canada. The W.S.Tyler company stores will sell synthetic screening media, fine mesh, equipment, and related services.

  • Major Wire will continue to sell through its authorized dealer network. Flex-Mat 3 will become the sole brand sold for the self-cleaning screen media market.

“Both companies bring together tremendous, well-earned strengths to the screen media marke,” says Walter Haver, managing partner of Haver & Boecker, shareholding company of both partners Major Wire Industries and W.S.Tyler. “Working together will allow each manufacturer to maintain its identity and serve its core customer base with the highest quality solutions and support.”
