Launched at the Hillhead expo in 2016 to bring a simplified range of equipment to the crushing and screening industry, Terex-owned EvoQuip says it has grown to become one of the top three compact crushing and screening brands in the world.
Starting out with the Bison 35 crusher, capable of outputting up to 30 tons per hour, EvoQuip went on to introduce the Cobra 290R (now the biggest crusher in its range), capable of outputting 320 US tph.
On the screening side, EvoQuip’s products have evolved to encompass the Harrier 220, a small yet robust machine designed for recycling, composting, topsoil, landscaping, and contract building industries, capable of outputting 90 US tph, to the highly aggressive scalping screen Colt 1600, which was built upon the features of the successful Colt 1000. The Colt 1600 is the largest screen in the EvoQuip range and can process up to 661 US tph, depending on application.
EvoQuip’s range has also developed to include tracked mobile conveyors, high- and low-level feeders and radial stockpilers, designed to work alongside its range of crushing and screening equipment. More recently, hybrid offerings, designed to give customers alternative energy options to operate their equipment and digital solutions, such as T-Link telemetry providing customers with real-time information on the performance of their machine, have been at the forefront of EvoQuip’s evolution to address emerging industry needs.
While the brand started off in 2016 with just five dealers, this has since grown to 44 dealers from around the globe.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, EvoQuip had to change initial celebratory plans for this milestone from an in-person event to a virtual one. Hosted by Northern Irish actor and comedian Tim McGarry, dealers were treated to a personalised EvoQuip song, a timeline of the last five years, a live quiz where some of the team members’ knowledge was put to the test, a raffle and the first ever EvoQuip Dealer Awards.
The EvoQuip Dealer Awards included several categories such as Global Leader in Industry Growth, Customer Support and Rental Business Growth, to name a few. Among the winners were Mobile Screening and Crushing (MSC) from New Zealand who won Global Dealer of the Year. EvoQuip says that MSC achieves sales targets, has a strong online presence and is wholly invested in the EvoQuip brand.
Speaking of the last five years, EvoQuip business line director Barry O’Hare said: “EvoQuip brings value to customers by providing intuitive equipment that is simple to operate and maintain, fuel efficient and easy to transport. User friendliness is at the heart of our brand and as new products have been developed, the focus has always been on simplicity and entry level customers.
“There are some really exciting, innovative products in the pipeline and with the help and expertise of our distribution network, we will continue to grow and dominate the global compact crushing, screening and conveying market.”
