The Material Works (TMW) has designated SES as the newest authorised supplier of environment-friendly pickling lines incorporating patented Eco Pickled Surface (EPS) Technology. SES will design and build automated EPS pickling lines for both integrated and mini mills around the world under a nonexclusive license from TMW.
Founded in 1976 in Alliance, Ohio, as Steel Equipment Specialists, SES supplies custom engineered equipment and systems for the primary metals industry. SES specialises in complex material handling and multi-stage processing systems incorporating the advanced control and diagnostic monitoring technology of its Canadian subsidiary, SES Automation of Toronto. In announcing the partnership, TMW President Kevin Voges stated: “As EPS technology expands from the service centre sector to mills, we sought a design/build partner with deep engineering talent and experience manufacturing equipment for the heavy duty, continuous operation mill environment. SES is that partner and brings the bonus of added international exposure to our selling efforts.”
SES CEO Don Batty added, “We are very excited about the new partnership with TMW as we recognise the growth potential of EPS technology. EPS is a great fit to our portfolio of solutions.”
