Heavy equipment distributor Semco Equipment Sales has marked its expansion into the screening and crushing market by taking on distribution for the Tesab and Trackstack brands in the states of Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia.

The range of crushing and screening equipment Semco now provides include tracked jaw crushers, impact crushers, conveyors, screens, in-rail boxcar/containers and ship loaders.

The new division is headed by Nick Fisher, assisted by the company’s recent recruit Joseph Sumaya who is handling customer enquiries.

The company’s entry into to the crushing and screening market is part of its plan to offer new and existing customers a wider range of products.

Semco director Graham Murphy says the well-established Tesab and Trackstack brands have an excellent reputation in the industry for high reliability and productivity.

"Our distribution arrangement has enabled Semco to offer extremely competitive pricing," he says.

"We have also invested in a fleet of rental machines that enable us to offer customers a choice of rent-to-buy or purchase options."

Murphy says high landfill costs, coupled with the economic and environmental benefits of recycling will mean a continued growth in the recycling of materials.

"The ability to hire portable machinery such as Tesab/Trackstack also has the benefit of being able to rapidly deploy services without capital outlay to take advantage of highly profitable market opportunities," he says.

"With our rental fleet already in high demand, new equipment is being added progressively. For example, a new trommel that features quick-change screens will be commissioned shortly."

Murphy adds the company’s existing mobile service, workshop facilities and  wide range of off-the-shelf replacement parts mean it can respond quickly to customer’s after-sales needs.

"To accommodate a range of needs, our rent- to- purchase (RPO) options mean that prospective buyers are able to hire equipment for a period; do the job and simply hand it back," he says.

"They also have the alternative at the end of the hire period, where the equipment potentially can be bought outright at a reduced cost."

"We have found that customers like RPO when there is the potential to roll the machine over onto the next leg of a contract, a new job or they realise there is a sound business case for offering material recycling services into the future", Murphy adds.

Semco says its sales and RPO facilities includes commissioning/decommissioning of machines on site, including full operator and routine maintenance training for both new and rental machines. Further detailed information can be found at Semco’s crusher equipment website.
