10 March 2011

Trussville, AL – The US Shredder announced the sale of a Heavy Duty 80108 Shredder and downstream system to Columbus Metal Industries headquartered in Columbus, Nebraska. The new installation will be located at the company’s Kearney, Nebraska facility and will complement the existing 80108 shredder at their Columbus, NE facility.

Complete construction engineering and facility layout will be provided by US Shredder’s new Installation Engineering Group.

According to a company representative, “The decision to purchase the shredder system was based on several key factors;  1) US Shredder engineers worked with our staff  to ensure many of the main components of our existing shredder; rotor, motor,  hammers, etc. were compatible with the new one 2) the major suppliers of the system components are the industry’s best, 3) the engineering services and support supplied for installation will save us time and money, 4) after seeing the new 80108 shredder box, we were convinced it is the highest quality, heaviest shredder available on the market today.  And of course, we have been using US Shredder castings in our other shredder successfully for years. ”

Installation is expected to begin in April 2011.
