McLanahan Corp. completed the acquisition of CMB International, a manufacturer of crushers, screens, feeders and conveyors based out of Leicestershire, United Kingdom.

According to McLanahan, Martin Brough and Julie Smith founded CMB in 1996. They brought on Chris Hall as a partner a few years later.

The company now focuses on supporting quarries, providing on-site plant maintenance and support. McLanahan says the CMB product line is designed to be easily retrofitted into existing plants, with the company deploying a team of field service engineers.

Also, CMB owns and operates the RubbleCrusher brand, producing compact crushers that can be mounted on wheels, tracks or a skid and pulled behind a truck. RubbleCrusher equipment is ideal for small- to medium-sized crushing and recycling projects, according to McLanahan.

“We were looking to expand our crushing and screening lines, as well as expand our ability to provide excellent customer service and support in the United Kingdom,” says Cory Jenson, executive vice president of sales and business development at McLanahan. “We had been working on a few projects with the CMB team and found ourselves to have similar values and goals. Having them become part of the McLanahan family of companies made sense for both our businesses.”

McLanahan says the CMB product line will become part of its brand to support the company’s existing line of crushers and horizontal and inclined screens. The line will be available directly from McLanahan’s offices around the world.

The CMB line of cone crushers will be used as part of Anaconda Equipment’s line of mobile crushers.

“It is fantastic to be welcoming CMB to the McLanahan family,” says David Hunter, business line director of McLanahan aggregate systems. “This further broadens our product portfolio, cementing our ability to offer some of the most comprehensive solutions in our industry for both wet and dry processing, from feeders right through to tailings management. The addition of the CMB field service team also advances our ability to support our growing customer base.”

RubbleCrusher will continue to operate as an independent brand in the global marketplace as part of the McLanahan family of companies, McLanahan adds. McLanahan companies include the McLanahan, Eagle Iron Works and Anaconda brands.

Liam Holland and Matthew Brough will continue to lead the RubbleCrusher brand as business line director and technical director, respectively.
