Flexicon has been a world leader in the design and manufacture of reliable, high performance bulk handling equipment, custom-engineered and integrated plant-wide systems since 1974.

Our products range from individual equipment to automated systems. Applications include the conveying, discharging, filling, weighing, blending, and delivery feed of a broad range of powder and bulk solid materials. Our automated systems will source bulk material from interior or exterior plant locations, transport it between process equipment and storage vessels, weigh it, blend it, feed it to packaging lines, extruders, molding machines and storage vessels, and load it into railcars and trailers.

Flexicon can also custom-engineer automated, plant-wide bulk handling and processing systems that integrate Flexicon equipment with bulk handling and process equipment of other manufacturers. Most equipment is available either in carbon steel with durable industrial finishes, or in stainless steel designed and constructed to industrial, food, dairy or pharmaceutical standards.
