KMC Global, the parent company of PRAB Inc., has acquired CDM Systems Inc., headquartered in Elk River, Minn. CDM Systems is a manufacturer of custom en-masse conveyors and marine leg ship unloaders. CDM Systems is recognized for heavy duty, large volume en-masse conveyors that operate in extreme conditions. The conveyors are made of an abrasive resistant steel frame and a high alloy, drop-forged, hardened chain assembly. The CDM conveyors are engineered and built for service in mining, potash, cement, co-generation boiler feed, and other heavy industrial applications.

KMC Global is the parent company to a group of industrial manufacturing companies that conduct business worldwide. Each company within the group operates under its own brand and maintains its own structure, while benefiting from shared resources and technology advances of the group. 

Ned Thompson, president of KMC Global, explains, “The acquisition of CDM was completed out of respect for the brand, the quality manufacturing, and the dedicated people. We welcome CDM to our group of companies and look forward to their continued growth and success.”

The addition of CDM to the KMC Global group complements the conveyors manufactured by the other companies. Mike Hill, V.P. of sales and marketing for PRAB, notes, “Like PRAB, the CDM name is well known in the industry for highly engineered and durable conveying equipment. These systems have to handle some of the most rugged and abrasive materials under extreme operating conditions, and do so without fail. We are privileged to have CDM as part of our group.”
