Corporate History

United Conveyor Corporation was founded in 1920.  During that time, need for electricity quickly increased throughout the United States, elevating the demand for coal-fired power plants and ash handling solutions.

In response to these industry changes, UCC president, Mr. Edgar B. Tolman pioneered new technology in pneumatic conveying and introduced the NUVEYOR® Vacuum System.  The NUVEYOR Vacuum System was the first of its kind and was instrumental in sustaining the company through the Great Depression.  Since that time, UCC has continued to lead the industry by offering superior systems and products to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers. 

Over the past 93 years, our family-owned business has earned a reputation for driving innovation, providing reliable solutions and cultivating trusted partnerships with our customers.  This foundation has allowed us to become a recognized global leader in ash handling with customers and installations worldwide.
