Singer Equities acquires Quality Conveyor Solutions

Singer Equities Inc. has acquired Quality Conveyor Solutions, headquartered in Roanoke, Virginia.

QCS provides conveyor belt, accessories and field services including installation and mobile maintenance out of three Virginia locations in Roanoke, Covington and Richmond; Baltimore, Maryland; Rocky Mount, North Carolina; and Kingsport, Tennessee. QCS serves multiple markets including aggregate, pulp and paper, power generation and cement.

The business, founded in 2016, will continue operating under the QCS name. Owners Aaron Atwell, Bill Bettridge, Junior Purdue, Doug Stanley and Geoff Emery will continue in key management roles. Atwell will be vice president and general manager of QCS and merge operations with Virginia Carolina Belting, a division of Singer Equities based in Salem, Virginia.

“Aaron, Bill and their 37 employees have significantly grown the business in a short period of time. We are excited to add their knowledge base and conveyor service experience to the Singer family," said Sam Petillo, president of Singer Equities.

Atwell said, “Unifying QCS and VCB, combined with Singer’s conveyor services out of RW Connection in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, will make us the strongest belt service company in the Mid-Atlantic region.”

Bill Bettridge, vice president of the Mid-Atlantic Region added, “Singer provides us the right cultural fit and support to fuel our expansion in the region and beyond.”
