DARLINGTON, UNITED KINGDOM – Vortex Global Ltd. received the Materials Handling Engineers’ Association (MHEA) Excellence Award for Supplier of the Year.

The award recognizes companies that have made a significant impact on customer successes through outstanding customer service, robust product offerings, excellent product quality or has exceeded expectations in the bulk materials handling industry.

Vortex was nominated by LeBlansch Bulkhandling Equipment B.V. for their collaboration during a recent project for PPG Industries Chemicals.

“Vortex has always strived to offer the correct equipment for even the most challenging applications put forward — while at the same time, continuing to provide quality components of a high standard,” said Jan Le Blansch, owner of LeBlansch Bulk Handling Equipment B.V. “We have been working on projects with Vortex Global Limited for many, many years, and it is always a pleasure to stay in contact with the Vortex team.”

The award was presented on Oct. 18 at MHEA’s 2nd annual Excellence Awards Ceremony & Dinner, hosted in Nottingham, U.K., at Eastwood Hall.

“Vortex is proud to receive this award because it recognizes our increased presence and success in international bulk handling markets,” said Laurence Millington, managing director at Vortex Global Ltd. “It is always a pleasure to work with our international sales groups, such as LeBlansch, on challenging engineered projects. In doing so, we expand our knowledge on the different types of conveying applications, and what equipment is necessary to approach them.

“MHEA is a staunch supporter of U.K. and overseas companies such as ours, and we enjoy working with likeminded people to advance the knowledge base for bulk handling industries.”
