Resin Systems Wins Contract to Supply FMC Technologies

11 February 2007

Resin Systems Inc is to supply their VRoll composite tubes to FMC Technologies' Material Handling Solutions business for their new line of Link-Belt Composite Conveyor Idler Rolls.

RSI say that composite idler rolls have great potential in the global material handling market as they are a stronger, lighter and more durable alternative to the steel tubes used in traditional roller assemblies.

""This agreement compliments and strengthens our commitment to advanced conveying technology,"" said Robert A. Campbell, General Manager of FMC Technologies' Material Handling Solutions. ""Our new line of Link-Belt Conveyor Idler Rolls, using RS's VRoll composite tube, will feature significantly longer roll life, reduced energy requirements and lower replacement costs than standard steel rolls.""

""This important agreement kick starts our next innovation - VRoll,"" said Paul Giannelia, President and Chief Executive Officer of RS. ""FMC Technologies' proven history in the global bulk material handling arena makes them the ideal company to take VRoll to market quickly.""

Deliveries to FMC Technologies are expected to begin in the first half of 2007.
