Who we help and how
Our customers at processing facilities across industries are tasked with ensuring conveyor systems operate efficiently, minimize waste and meet throughput goals. But like any complex mechanical system, issues arise under the strenuous operating conditions.
To meet these conveyor belting needs, we specialize in the fabrication and distribution of lightweight conveyor belting and industrial conveyor products. We focus on providing value-added products and services through our nationwide network of full-service sales and fabrication facilities. When facility managers notice an issue with their conveyor system, we’re the full-service belting provider that’s always on call.
Conveyor belting problems we solve
Our customers seek our expertise when a conveyor belt:
- Shows signs of damage.
- Has a complete breakdown.
- Causes excess waste.
- Doesn’t meet sanitation standards.
They also seek us out when their belt provider:
- Isn’t cost-competitive.
- Doesn’t meet necessary response time.
- Can’t delivery or install efficiently.
- Only provides products, not solutions.
MIR solves these problems with best-in-class conveyor belting products and thoroughly trained technicians to implement services. Get to know our product offerings and service capabilities, and read on below for our areas of expertise that benefit your facility’s reliability, throughput and bottom line.
What makes us different?
Continuous, ROI-driven problem solving
Simply put, we don’t stop at one solution. We put this philosophy to work in product selection and service implementation. This mindset also plays a key role in our audits, where quality products, delivery reach and experienced staff work in lockstep to offer big-picture improvements. Our storeroom audit improves backstock efficiency, and our MIR Belting Audit™ tasks a conveyor belting expert with determining potential areas of improvement across production lines. We play an active part in improving your facility’s efficiency, throughput and bottom-line.
Stocked and custom-fabricated products
MIR can source, supply and fabricate all of the conveyor belts, pulleys and accessories your facility needs to operate. Within the world market of belting materials, we aren’t tied to a single vendor — meaning you always get a best-fit product. As a fabricator, we utilize best-in-class fabricating technology (digital and diamond-tip skivers, vacuum tables and CNC machines) to customize belts to any features your application calls for, even if it’s a style that’s never been done before. Finally, our strong relationships with pulley and accessory manufacturers make us a full-service conveyor system provider. Because we engineer the system with all of the components in mind, you can be confident in your conveyor’s ability to function under rigorous production line conditions.
Unmatched reach of delivery and service
When a conveyor belt breaks down or shows signs of damage, you need responses — fast. And to get those fast responses and efficient results, you need a provider that can match your facility’s high-speed pace. Our 24/7 ordering services deliver off-the-shelf products in as little as a day, and in-house fabrication cuts down delivery speeds for custom products. As for our conveyor belt services, MIR’s technicians are on-call 24/7 as well to install replacements or conduct repairs. Our teams are efficient at implementing these break-fix services, getting your production lines up and running again and minimizing costly downtime.
Highly qualified and experienced staff
The MIR sales team is fully trained in fabrication and material applications. They listen to your belting needs to source best-fit products and are always searching for new belting technology that improves your conveyor system. Quality conveyor belting products function best when an expert technician conducts the installation. Our company is ISN-verified, and our OSHA-trained technicians are thoroughly trained in conveyor applications, product knowledge and belting fabrication and they conduct services within your facility’s window of downtime. And if issues arise in the field, they’re fully prepared to troubleshoot until the problem is solved.
From the initial conversation with your MIR sales representative to the final post-installation discussion with your MIR technician, you’ll leave thinking, “They know what they’re talking about.”
