Based in Greer (South Carolina), Forderband Incorporated was founded on February 24, 2004 as an S-Corporation. Braeuer Systems America, Inc. acquired Forderband, Inc. in January 2014.


Forderband manufactures unique conveyors.  The advanced design, along with the lowest profile on the market, makes it the ideal solution for space-restricted environments.  Building with unsurpassed quality and longevity; our conveyors are the most economical conveyors currently available. 


Machinery, systems, and assembly lines are required to utilize less space, to be more adaptable to changing production needs, and to provide a better reliability thus reducing or even eliminating production downtimes as well as making an investment worthwhile and more profitable on the long run. 


For more than a century, conveyors have been designed and sold with conventional outside motors.  Years ago, we developed the innovating idea of the smallest possible conveyor profile using only interior motors and reducers.  All our customers, most of them Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies, understand the tremendous value and benefit these conveyors provide to their business. 


Forderband conveyors are used in a wide variety of industrial businesses, from automotive assembly plants to bottling plants to meat packing facilities.

Depending on the type of material being transported, our conveyor systems can be located overhead, in-floor or on-floor, on or into machinery, or from work station to work station. The simplest and most inexpensive type is the chute conveyor.  It allow product to accumulate in shipping or other desired areas. 


The belt conveyor is probably the most common powered version.  It has a belt wrapped over a moving rollers, making the transport of light to medium weight parts quite easily. 


The chain conveyor works on a similar principle as the belt, however, instead of being transported along on belts, product is carried directly on the chains.
