US Shredder Turnkey Installations and Capabilities Increase

16 October 2013

Trussville, AL…. The US Shredder and Castings Group’s turnkey installation projects have increased tremendously over the last 8 months.  Four projects ranging with equipment values ranging between $1.2 -  $3.6 million have been successfully engineered, installed and begun operation recently.  The company has doubled the amount of personnel involved in installations of systems.  

     After completing an internal market study and analysis of what shredder operators considered the biggest issues when installing equipment; the company found that cost overruns on installation was ranked number one.   Systems Project Manager Chris Melenick stated “Most companies simply offer the equipment loads, electrical requirements, etc., and then offer supervision at installation time.  All we ask the customer to supply is a site survey at the facility.  From there we do the civil engineering, concrete pad design, electrical conduit plan, construction and mechanical installation of equipment.  We can do as much or as little as they need us to do.  We give them a guaranteed quote for the project and when we’ve completed the install, we hand them the keys.  It gives a big advantage to a customer that is seeking financing to know he has a firm number on all aspects of the project.”

     US Shredder also noted that its specialized modular systems have been a success as well.   The company installs the electrical, hydraulic; motor and drive systems in specially designed containers and ship them to the customer site ready to be powered, saving additional time and expense.

          The US Shredder offers scrap shredders, control systems, downstream systems, non ferrous recovery, air systems, scrap shears, balers, and loggers; as well as shreddercastings, service, engineering, construction and installation to the worldwide scrap industry.  For more information, please contact Chris Melenick at 216-849-1848 or [email protected].
