Working closely with customers in demanding wheel loader and excavator applications, ESCO identified the need for additional adapter protection. Large quarry and small mining class loader conditions can be extremely abrasive, accelerating top adapter wear.

Weir has entered into a binding agreement to acquire ESCO Corporation (“ESCO”), a U.S. company based in Portland, Ore., for an equity value of $1. 051 million and an estimated enterprise value of $1.285 million. ESCO is the global market leader in highly engineered GET for surface mining and construction.
