Chief Agri, known for its full line of grain and commodity storage, aeration, and material handling products, is thrilled to announce the purchase of substantially all the assets of Rapat Industries Philippines. As a worldwide organization that does business in 6 continents, the Asia location compliments Chief’s France location, Chief Phenix, and bridges the gap from our headquarters in North America. The diversity in locations allows Chief to better serve customers and efficiently fulfill orders for clients across the globe.
The new Chief facility in Asia is located inside the Economic Duty Free Zone at the former Clark Airforce Base north of Manila. The 36,500 square foot plant accommodates the design, engineering, manufacturing, and assembly of a variety of belt conveyor models. Each conveyor is designed to meet the specific needs of the application. The personalization of the product translates to a high quality finished solution. With this purchase, Chief acquires the technical expertise in conveyor belt models to support Chief’s efforts to provide a complete solution for both the commercial and private sectors.
“The integration of the belt conveyor line into our existing business portfolio and manufacturing footprint allows us to further broaden and accelerate diversity in our overall product line, add to our customer base, and enhance our presence in complementary markets,” said Chief Industries, Inc. CEO, DJ Eihusen. “We intend to leverage these extended capabilities to better serve our existing customers domestically and abroad with increasingly valuable, competitive, and cost-effective products.”
