Van Aalst Bulk Handling and PBC are joining forces

With pleasure, we would like to announce that PBC Services, Inc. (Houma, LA) is now Van Aalst Bulk Handling Co’s (NL) US representative.  By joining forces with PBC, we are enhancing our ability to provide US-based customers with quicker response times on trouble-shooting and repairs as well as providing shorter lead times for spare and replacement parts. 

PBC Services, Inc. has been operating along the navigable waterways of the continental US since 1984.  Today, PBC’s capabilities include turn-key transloading services for customers moving dry, bulk powdered material from river barges to land-based storage facilities. PBC also offers parts and services, troubleshooting services, and project management oversight on refurbishment of customer-owned pneumatic systems. With a wide experience in pneumatics systems, PBC’s staff is focused on offering practical, experienced-based solutions for their customers. 

Van Aalst Bulk Handling Co. is a flexible manufacturing organization assisting its customers with tailor-made solutions for their loading, unloading, and pneumatic conveying projects. Van Aalst Bulk Handling provides complete design, equipment manufacturing and supply. Van Aalst Bulk Handling supports installation and commissioning of their products and provides training for their customers’ operating personnel.  The customers have come to recognize the Van Aalst Bulk Handling products as “best in class” in quality and reliability. 

Together, Van Aalst Bulk Handling Co and PBC Services, Inc. are your one-stop shop for your bulk handling pneumatic systems and services needs in the USA. 

We feel confident, by offering our U.S. customers a local contact again, that services can be provided on a higher level. By establishing the cooperation between PBC and Van Aalst Bulk Handling we will be able to give our clients a 24-hour response time. Spare parts like filter elements, valves and pinch valve hoses will be kept in stock in the U.S. which will result in fast efficient deliveries.

Another advantage will be the local labour for servicing and maintenance of the equipment.

With this new cooperation, you will see the following changes in how we invoice and receive payments:

  • As from the 1st of January 2021 you will receive invoices from Van Aalst Bulk Handling Co. USA instead of Van Aalst Bulk Handling BV, The Netherlands.
  • We have a new bank account number with the Comerica Bank: 1883193458
