Midwest Industrial Rubber acquires Atlanta Belting

Midwest Industrial Rubber (MIR) has acquired The Atlanta Belting Company, a specialty fabricator and distributor of lightweight conveyor belting and accessories.

ABCo provides a wide range of custom belting for multiple industries including food production, recycling, industrial manufacturing, construction and product handling. The company operates four locations: Atlanta Belting Company in Atlanta; Florida Belting Company, Orlando; Piedmont Belting Company, Kernersville, North Carolina; and 
Tennessee Belting Company, Memphis, Tennessee.

ABCo's four branch locations bring MIR’s national network to 29 branches.

“This is a very strategic acquisition for us in the Southeast and broadens our reach and capabilities in the region,” said Brian McSharry, CEO and president of MIR. “The four branches of Atlanta Belting align to our strategic mission of being close to our customers.”

This is the fifth acquisition for St. Louis-based MIR in 11 months. The fabricator and distributor of lightweight conveyor belting and related components is a portfolio company of Incline Equity Partners, a Pittsburgh-based lower middle-market private equity firm.
