Thriving by creating a plan for the future.

Over the past few years, Belt Tech has completed major

expansions and continues to grow in the Tennessee and

Alabama markets simultaneously. The company has broadened

into the industrial services sector. Despite these exciting new

developments, Belt Tech has remained committed to the

coal market traditionally served. An additional 8,000 square

foot warehouse in Virginia to house products focused on the

coalfields’ needs has just been completed.

“With three decades of experience in the conveyor belt industry,

I came to work for Belt Tech because of its reputation of integrity,

demand for excellence, and dedication to its employees, said

Russ Helms, V.P. sales. “Justin has assembled a dynamic

and well-experienced leadership team. Now more than ever,

Belt Tech is positioned for enormous growth both in service

and product sales. We believe that there is still growth to be

found in the shrinking coal market as well as aggregates, wood

products, and metalworks. This is an exciting time to be a part

of this organization.”

Belt Tech embraces change and is committed to a new era

in the company’s future growth, based on its tradition of quality

service. It continues to grow from that solid foundation using

a vision from leadership, buy-in from employees, support from

quality manufacturers, and focus on client’s needs.

ICL America-Scandia, Superior Industries, and other quality

manufacturers have approached Belt Tech in the last few years

because of its success and reputation.

“Our product line and Justin’s vision for Belt Tech’s growth had

similar goals,” said Gary Porter, sales director for ICL America,

Ltd. “Justin was entering into the conveyor belt and components

market, and we had discussed how the business relationship

would be mutually beneficial. We are always looking for new

growth opportunities, especially in the coal mining market,

with companies that have the relationships with the consumer

and the ability to both supply and install our product. Our

mutual growth has been exponential with Belt Tech stocking

our products for immediate response to the consumer needs.

The benefits to the customer have been phenomenal. Working

and growing with Justin and his team was one of the easiest

decisions ICL America Ltd. could have made.”

Talent from the industries that Belt Tech partners with and

serves have come on board to propel the company to greater

success. With each new team member comes a change not

always out of necessity, but as ideas for improvement. Belt

Tech was solely in the business of vulcanizing belts and

transformed into the distribution and installation of belts along

with cleaners, conveyor components, and pulleys. At the core

of all this success are the people and commitment to the vision,

quality, and the company.
