Bulk Handling Systems (BHS), Eugene, Ore., has acquired Nihot Recycling Technology BV (Nihot), an Amsterdam-based company that designs and manufactures air sorting and separation equipment for the recycling, solid waste and other industries.

“We are very excited to welcome Nihot to the BHS family of companies,” says BHS CEO Steve Miller. “Having partnered with Nihot for a number of years, I have great respect for the company’s people and product quality. They are the best at what they do, and our new relationship will strengthen the integrated solutions that BHS offers its customers.”

“BHS and Nihot are similar in that both companies manufacture equipment to the highest levels of quality,” said Cees Duijn, director of Nihot. “Combining our technology, product offerings, global resources and expertise will enhance every function of our business. BHS has positioned itself as the premier systems provider. Nihot is excited to be joining this team and is looking forward to a prosperous partnership.”

Nihot has a global presence in providing air technology, with more than 500 operational installations worldwide. The company’s air separation technologies are used to sort a wide variety of material, including municipal solid waste (MSW), fuel generated from waste, construction and demolition materials, and biomass. “The acquisition gives BHS yet another resource to utilize as it continues to provide cutting-edge technologies for a wide range of processing needs,” BHS states in a late January news release.

BHS designs, engineers, manufactures and installs sorting systems and components for the solid waste, recycling, waste-to-energy, and construction and demolition industries. BHS has built some of the biggest and most durable MRFs in the world – and they are achieving the highest throughput, recovery and purity rates in the industry.
