Belt Power Expands in Midwest, Acquires Accurate Industrial Products

Belt Power gains a lightweight belting products distributor and service provider with locations near St. Louis, MO and Columbus, OH.


MARIETTA, GA — Belt Power LLC, a full-service distributor and fabricator of belting and components for lightweight conveyor systems, announced Jan. 3 that it completed the acquisition of Accurate Industrial Products, LLC on Dec. 30, 2021.

As a highly respected fabricator and distributor for more than 25 years, Accurate has delivered a wide variety of lightweight belting products and services to customers across the country from locations in the St. Louis, MO and Columbus, OH markets. Accurate services a broad array of industries, including food processing, auto/tire manufacturing, consumer packaged goods, building products, and general industrial markets. The business has a well-deserved reputation for strong technical capabilities, quality product lines and highly respected leadership.

The combination of Belt Power and Accurate provides a powerful platform to deliver value-added solutions to customers nationwide, leveraging Belt Power’s expanding footprint, fabrication capabilities and technical sales organization. 

The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.


“Joining forces with Glenn and his team brings together two great companies with rich traditions and strong cultures focused on taking care of our people and customers," said Don Heitmeier, Belt Power CEO. "Our companies have similar approaches to the business with minimal overlap, enabling us to accelerate our national organic growth strategy during a very dynamic time in our industry."

Accurate owners Glenn Siemer and John Hipp will have critical, ongoing roles with Belt Power.

Download“From the founding of Accurate Industrial in 1995, I learned that success is often grounded in bold moves. One such move occurred in 2007 when John Hipp acquired ownership in Accurate to become my partner," said Glenn Siemer, president of Accurate. "The advantages realized from this strategic union were obvious and proved beneficial to both our employees and customers alike. We view a merger with Belt Power in the same light. During an unparalleled time of consolidation in the lightweight belting segment, we’re thrilled to be joining forces with the preeminent distributor/fabricator in North America. 

“Accurate and Belt Power share very similar customer-focused cultures, and we are delighted to support Belt Power’s partnership with Glenn, John and the Accurate team," added Rob Hogan, managing director at Shorehill Capital. "The combination continues Belt Power’s organic and acquisition-related growth initiatives, and positions Belt Power to best support local and national customers."
