Our history, in a nut shell

https://www.floveyor.com/the-technology/The Floveyor story began with peanuts. Peanuts, and a deceptively simple piece of engineering ingenuity that changed bulk material handling systems forever.

In the 1950s Western Australia, our founder Robert Walker drew inspiration from a classical Chinese Dragon Spine conveyor to create a highly efficient aero- mechanical prototype for conveying peanuts. Robert took an ancient irrigation system and revolutionised its principles into fluidising technology to work for powders and granules – the Floveyor was born.

Sixty-something years after Robert’s curiosity and inventiveness created the world’s first aero-mechanical solution for bulk material handling, new generation Floveyors continue to exceed everyone’s expectations.

Today, Floveyor is a global provider of aero–mechanical conveying expertise and our equipment still sets the industry benchmark for quality, safety and reliability. Floveyors convey thousands of materials in many diverse industries with unrivaled efficiency and unmatched care. These attributes combined with our portfolio of complementary equipment ensures that we maintain our position as the world’s leading authority on aero-mechanical conveyors.

As a third generation family company proud of our pioneering heritage, we are committed to matching the effortlessly high performance of our conveyors in every aspect of our business including: our passion for innovation in research and design, our fully customised engineering solutions for the needs of our customers and our peerless after sales service and support.
