McLanahan Corporation finalize the acquisition of Diefenbach,

McLanahan Corporation is pleased to announce this week that it has finalized the acquisition of Diefenbach, which was announced in February 2023.

Diefenbach, a leading manufacturer of filter presses and thickeners based in Medolago, Italy, has been designing and manufacturing liquid-solid separation equipment since 1907. With thousands of installations around the globe, Diefenbach provides solutions for filtration and dewatering applications in a wide range of industries, including chemicals manufacturing, food and beverage processing, aggregates, mining, battery recycling, PET recycling, wastewater treatment and many more.

McLanahan and Diefenbach have been working on projects together since 2013. This new partnership will allow McLanahan to better serve its customers around the world, offering a more comprehensive solution to water recycling and tailings management to help customers meet ever-changing processing requirements and to help contribute to sustainable materials processing practices as part of the circular economy.

“As the focus on sustainability and creating a circular economy within the materials processing industry continues to grow, the need for water recycling and tailings management is more important than ever,” said Cory Jenson, EVP – Sales and Business Development at McLanahan. “This acquisition complements McLanahan’s existing line of tailings and water management solutions and allows us to offer more competitive solutions to our customers around the globe.”

Diefenbach will continue to operate as an independent brand in the marketplace and continue to support its customers globally. For the aggregate industry, Diefenbach is partnering with Eagle Iron Works, another brand in the McLanahan Family of Companies, to provide a proven line of filter presses and thickeners to EIW customers who are looking to purchase a complete tailings management and water recycling solution from one vendor.
