Vecoplan Midwest, a subsidiary of Vecoplan LLC in High Point, NC, recently relocated to an 18,180-sq-ft facility located in New Albany, IN. According to Bill Miller, COO of Vecoplan Midwest, the move was necessitated by continuing growth of its shredder sales and service business and the introduction of briquetters, pellet mills, and complete pelletizing systems to its product offerings in 2010.
Vecoplan shredders are used in industrial scale recycling, while its briquetting and pelletizing systems are used in the production of alternative fuels. “In order to meet the demands of sales and production, we’ve tripled our staff in the last six years. So we’re delighted to move into this new space and are excited to be a part of the growing recycling and alternative energy markets in North America,” said Miller.
In addition to 2000 sq ft of office space, the new facility houses a 10,180-sq-ft machine rebuild center and a 6000-sq-ft test lab/show room space, where customers can send their material to be shredded, briquetted, or pelletized. “Customers are always welcome to visit and see their material being processed from start to finish,” adds Miller.
