  • Company honored by major global customer
  • Award presented at MINExpo 2016 in Las Vegas

Phoenix Conveyor Belt Solutions, Inc., recently received at MINExpo 2016 in Las Vegas, a global supplier award from Freeport-McMoRan for quality services.


Phoenix received the award because “it is an alliance partner that recognizes the global involvement and commitment between Freeport and Phoenix. It ties into the long standing relationship, history and support of working together in the United States, Indonesia and Chile,” said Craig Ammar, general manager of maintenance and operational improvement for Freeport-McMoRan.

“Freeport-McMoRan does not issue supplier awards very often,” said Bret Hall, head of Phoenix and NBS Service-NAFTA. “So we are honored and humbled at the same time for this recognition. It is a valued recognition of our organization – from top to bottom – and our dedication to quality products and services. We accept this award on behalf of our company and its employees.”

Phoenix Conveyor Belt Systems, GmbH, is headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, but has its North American offices in Fairlawn, Ohio, and has offered conveyor belting products and solutions on an international basis for more than 150 years.
