Moving forward with the company's global strategy, Schenck AccuRate, 746 E. Milwaukee St., Whitewater, 473-2440, Whitewater, has undergone changes to its management and internal support structure.

"The brand recognition of AccuRate in North American and Schenck worldwide along with its wide product offerings provide us many opportunities for growth and expansion in our markets," Mueller adds.

"I am excited to have the opportunity to work alongside Dirk and the management team and in leading this great group of people and the Schenck AccuRate organization to its next level of future success."

Both Maroske and Mueller share the vision to expand Schenck AccuRate's presence in dry bulk solids material handling solutions through organic growth and acquisition strategies.
