Bulkflow Technologies Inc. has changed its corporate name to Solex Thermal Science Inc. to more accurately reflect the strengths and value the company offers. The name change became effective for the Calgary, Alberta, Canada-based company on March 31.

Founded in 1999 as Bulkflow, Solex Thermal Science Inc. remains a privately held, primarily employee-owned company specializing in the science of heating, cooling and drying of free-flowing bulk solids such as sugar, salt, fertilizer, chemicals, plastics, biosolids, minerals and many other types of granular, crystals and powder. The original cooler technology was invented more than 20 years ago and was acquired by Bulkflow in 1999.

“Solex maintains the same ownership group -- its employees -- and the same management group,” said Neville Jordison, president of Solex Thermal Science. “More than 90 percent of our employees share a vested interest in our company.”

Along with the new corporate name, Solex introduced a new slogan -- “World Leaders in the Science of Heating and Cooling Bulk Solids” -- to emphasize its corporate position in the science of bulk solids heat exchange.
