Fenner Drives Acquires B-LOC Corporation
Fenner Drives has acquired B-LOC Corporation, the leading North American market supplier of keyless shaft/hub locking devices aka keyless bushings for mechanical power transmission and material handling applications.
Fenner Drives already has a major presence in the developing North American market for keyless bushings. "Combining the well established B-LOC brand with our existing Trantorque product line positions us as the market leader in the U.S. and Canada and provides a strong platform for sales growth in the Americas," said Ian Smith, Executive Director, Global Sales & Marketing of Fenner Drives.
B-LOC Corporation has occupied a unique position in the keyless bushing marketplace since its founding by Kurt Burg in 1982. Leveraging his proven track record in machine and product design, Mr. Burg built a company dedicated exclusively to developing new markets for keyless bushing technology. By providing unrivaled full-service engineering support, B-LOC built strong customer relationships, many of which continue to this day.
