Forta acquires VM fiber dispenser technology

Source: Forta Corp., Grove City, Pa. 

In conjunction with recently acquired VM Fiber Feeder Inc. assets, Forta will build out synthetic fiber concrete reinforcement offerings to include a patented fiber dispenser line. VM Fiber Feeder was established in 2003 with a goal of producing cost-effective and user-friendly fiber feeders and fiber for the volumetric concrete market. It quickly expanded with additional dispensers for synthetic fiber dispersion in concrete and asphalt production.

Based in Sarasota, Fla., VM also offered a unique line of both roving and pre-cut fibers that work in conjunction with the feeders. The VM Fiber Feeder brand, Forta officials note, has become synonymous among mobile "on-demand" fiber applications for concrete.
