Jorgensen Conveyor and Filtration Solutions Celebrates 70 Years of Material Handling Excellence

Mequon, Wis. (October 27, 2020) — Jorgensen Conveyor & Filtration Solutions, Inc. celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2020 with several enhancements – since their last milestone anniversary – aimed at further improving the company’s ability to support customers around the world with industry-leading material handling, coolant filtration and conveyor solutions. An expanded management team, the integration of new state-of-the-art manufacturing technology and a new approach to the company’s brand image have served to give customers even greater access to the advanced solutions required to keep up with the pace of modern manufacturing. 

Founded in 1950 by Charles T. Jorgensen, the company is currently led by Chuck D’Amico, the founder’s grandson, and it has grown to become a global leader in material handling innovation. In 2020, it has further solidified its management structure to support the company’s increasing size and scope. The new President & CEO, Chuck D’Amico, was joined by a new director of sales and marketing, Karl Kleppek, and by Dustin Krueger who was promoted to the position of manager of engineering. With a combined 71 years of experience in manufacturing-industry leadership, Jorgensen’s management is fully committed to leveraging the company’s long history of innovation to provide its customers the solutions they need to lead their industries. 

The new management structure was matched by new improvements to Jorgensen’s production capabilities. Part of the company’s commitment to utilizing the most cutting-edge technology for the highest possible part quality and cost efficiency, the million-dollar investment in the company’s Mequon, Wisconsin-based production facility included a 3 kW fiber laser cutting machine and a 250-ton press brake. 

With its investment in new technology, “We aimed to greatly increase our capacity for growth and support for our ongoing commitment to quality and competitive pricing for our customers,” said D’Amico. “Now is the best time ever for both existing and new customers to talk to Jorgensen about their chip-conveyor, coolant-filtration, metalworking chip-processing, and parts-and-scrap-handling requirements – and to find out how we can help them meet and surpass those requirements with a wider array of manufacturing solutions than ever before.” 

In recognition of the company’s expanded range of products, Jorgensen also expanded and refined its brand image. Now identified as Jorgensen Conveyor & Filtration Solutions, “the new branding honors the company’s past going back to their early patent of side chains resulting in the significant advancement of the hinged-steel-belt conveyor,” said Kleppek, “at the same time that it incorporates the new filtration equipment and chip solutions we’ve added to our product portfolio. We dedicated ourselves to providing our customers with the chip solutions, including the EcoFilter® and MunchMan® II conveyors, required for tough applications, and our new brand demonstrates our renewed commitment to offering comprehensive conveyor and filtration solutions, here in Wisconsin and across the globe.”
