McCloskey Washing Systems (MWS) has appointed Equip2 as a new dealer and as the official distributor of MWS washing equipment in New Zealand and Oceania.
Equip2 will also be an authorised service provider for MWS products.
MWS says that Equip2 has established a reputation of delivering quality products and after sales service through 40 years, and adds that the McCloskey washing range will fit perfectly into Equip2’s product line.
Equip2 has over 30 employees based in multiple locations throughout the territory. The company is a specialist supplier of crushers, screens, de-waterers and stackers. As a McCloskey dealer it will be adding the range of MWS washing and classification equipment to its portfolio for use in quarrying, contracting, mining, recycling, demolition and agricultural applications.
Initially Equip2 plans on adding two key models, the CSP120 and S130 rinser plants, to its portfolio. The S130 rinser is designed for medium-sized operations that favour the ability to be able to shift often. The CSP120 is a suitable unit to pair with the S130 allowing the customer to produce high grade concrete and asphalt sands, and also maximising the product yield against more traditional methods.
The CSP range is designed to enable superior separation efficiency from the final washed sand product, producing in-spec sands to desired grade. Each CSP is individually tailored to suit any application regardless of desired tonnage, from 20-300 tonnes per hour, or silt percentage in the feed material.
Equip2 head of sales Bert Hart said: "McCloskey have an exceptional reputation in the industry for quality and reliability. We have been thinking for some time on adding machine models with different capabilities to our line up and after being approached by a number of vendors, then doing our research, we decided that McCloskey Washing Systems would be the best fit for us and our brand. MWS offer a compelling machine solution but also hold similar core values to our own, which at an organisational level is important to us."
Ben Frettsome, MWS technical sales & applications manager, added: "Equip2’s highly regarded expertise and customer service, as well as their strong knowledge of the New Zealand market, makes them an excellent partner for McCloskey Washing Systems."
