PRAB Inc. has completed a purchase agreement for ownership of all assets of the Puckmaster company. Since 1986, Puckmaster has manufactured and supported briquetting machines for metal compression and coolant collection. The equipment has also been sold in biomass industries for briquetting woody feedstock.

“We are proud to have the PRAB name associated with the Puckmaster brand,” explains PRAB President and CEO Ned Thompson. “Metal prices are expected to remain fluid for the foreseeable future, and the environmental and regulatory risk of transporting metal chips blended with spent coolant is notably more stringent and fines more costly. Therefore, we will continue to recommend metal briquetting as risk mitigation and a cost savings option to our customers," Mr. Thompson says. The previous Puckmaster owner, Charles Arnold, will work exclusively with PRAB as a factory authorized, full-line equipment representative. Mr. Arnold’s company, American Material Handling Systems, will sell new Dualpak units and support existing Puckmaster customers in a select geographic region west of the Mississippi.
