Samuel Nelson Technology, a Division of Samuel, Son & Co., Limited and Butech Bliss Form Strategic Bidding Agreement

Salem, Ohio – January 16, 2018 – Butech Bliss and Samuel Nelson Technology are pleased to announce a new strategic bidding agreement. Both parties will jointly market and sell push-pull, semi-continuous and continuous pickling lines in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. “With Butech Bliss’ innovative processing equipment technology and Nelson Technology’s vast experience in designing and operating pickling lines, the combined expertise makes our partnership an ideal combination as a supplier of steel pickling equipment,” states Al Waigand Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Butech Bliss.

“With successful joint installations in Mexico and in the United States over the past few years, this is a natural next step for both companies. Our history of working together goes back nearly 30 years to when we were the first push-pull pickler to install Butech scrap choppers on our Cleveland, Ohio line. This agreement formalizes our new relationship and will strengthen our marketing approach throughout North America,” states Rick Snyder, President of the Samuel Steel Pickling Group.

Butech Bliss/Samuel Nelson Technology pickle lines include the latest technical developments available in the marketplace. Butech Bliss equipment is ruggedly designed to stand up under the most demanding circumstances.

The process section is provided by Samuel Nelson Technology who have designed and built over 65 complete systems for a variety of pickling lines worldwide. What separates Samuel Nelson Technology from other pickle line manufacturers is that they also own and operate toll push-pull pickling operations in Canada and the United States. This creates a unique opportunity for developing leading-edge innovations in energy conservation, environmental awareness, improved process efficiencies and overall lower operating costs.

This history of innovation, dependability, and success makes Butech Bliss/Samuel Nelson Technology an ideal choice as a supplier of steel pickling equipment.
