Satisfied Customers

I came into the sacking business with no prior experience in blending or packaging dry products. My experience was in block/paver & roofing tile precast concrete products. Pete Foster took me under his wing and shared decades of experience in assisting me design and build our first dry mix blending and packaging operation which also included a sand drying operation. He has been a true mentor, and with his guidance we built a small footprint versatile operation that is doing everything we wanted it to do.

Following the success of our first project together, I asked Pete to help me spec out a powder packaging line consisting of 2 silos, 4 impeller packers, bag flattening, bag cleaning, and robotic palletizing. Once again Pete’s expertise was invaluable in completing another successful project, and once again the operation is doing everything we expected it to do.

“Aggregate Drying Systems was selected to supply a new dryer, cooling and screening system for our mortar plant because of their experience and ability to supply the right equipment for our needs. We purchased a 60 TPH system for existing required production and ability to expand. Our available space was limited and they were the only company that had a solution for us.”
