United Kingdom-based wood and mixed materials recycling equipment maker McCloskey Environmental says market demand in North America is a key factor in its ability to add new dealers and to support the introduction of two new shredder models.

The company, which will display equipment at the United States Composting Council (USCC) show in Orange County, California, in late January, says the United States still has “a way to go to reach the potential of an advanced program of organic and waste recycling,” thus providing McCloskey with an opportunity.

“Initiatives like the National Recycling Strategy and the recent announcement of funding for major compost infrastructure development included in a federal funding bill are driving the development of long-term solutions and the resulting need for efficient, highly productive equipment,” McCloskey says.

McCloskey says arrangements are being made with new dealers and distributors in North America to “ensure there is appropriate expertise and support for the full range of products including shredders, trommels and stackers.”

Products introduced in 2022 include the ES-250 and ESS-300 shredders that the company says build on its more than 35 years of experience designing and manufacturing trommels, crushers, screeners and stackers working in a variety of applications.

“Our customer-driven approach to product development has led us to invest significantly in the establishment of this new business unit, focused on the design and manufacture of high-quality recycling equipment,” says Niko Lamminmäki, head of McCloskey Environmental, which since 2019 has been a business unit of Finland-based Metso Outotec.

Regarding growth in the recycling market, Lamminmäki says, “Municipalities and producers are seeking modern, flexible and cost-effective waste processing solutions. Looking ahead, we are very optimistic about the future of this division and the strong position that we are entering 2023 with. We have an exciting list of products introductions and strong partnership announcements in the coming months for the North American marketplace.”
