SWECO, Florence, KY – a business unit of M-I LLC – is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Founded in 1917 as the Southwestern Engineering Company, it has grown from a small ore milling and mining equipment company with a two-room office, to a world leader in separation technology with nine manufacturing facilities and over 100 service offices around the globe.  Incorporated in 1934, SWECO patented the design of the first vibratory separator in 1942 and has continuously improved and expanded upon it to meet the demands of a diverse customer base. Today, the company offers an extensive range of separation, sizing and milling equipment, including the Vibro-Energy® round separator, rectangular separators, GyraMax™ gyratory sifter, decanting centrifuges, as well as grinding and finishing mills and a complete line of aftermarket parts and screens.
