Eugene, Oregon-based Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) has acquired National Recovery Technologies (NRT), a Nashville, Tennessee-based company that designs and manufactures optical sorting equipment for the solid waste and recycling industries, among others.
“We’re pleased to add NRT to the BHS family,” says BHS CEO Steve Miller. “NRT was founded by some of the brightest scientific minds in the industry and its values have been based on technology innovation, quality of manufacturing and a strong commitment to customer support, values that BHS has as well. Today, NRT produces the best optical technology on the market, which strengthens BHS’ position as a global leader in providing the most state-of-the-art and durable material recovery systems in the industry.”
NRT was founded in 1981 and owns or is the exclusive licensee of 29 U.S. patents and five foreign patents covering NIR, X-Ray, Laser, and Line Camera sorting systems.
NRT leads the industry in plastic bottle and flake sorting technology, claiming the world's largest installed capacity in PET plastic reclamation plants.
BHS has catapulted to the forefront of the recycling industry and is currently building the largest and most sophisticated material recovery facilities in the world. This acquisition gives the company an additional resource to utilize as it continues to seek cutting edge solutions for a wide range of processing needs.
