Materials washing specialists, CDE Global has incorporated in the US with a new office in Siler City, North Carolina. The company has also launched a new website at www.cdeusa.com, specifically tailored towards the US market. CDE will support these activities with attendance at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas from 4th-8th March 2014. CONEXPO-CON/AGG will also be the formal launch for the new M4500 wash plant for construction, mining, recycling and industrial sands applications. With a capacity of 450tph the M4500 portable wash plant is a revolution in modular washing equipment offering feeding, screening, sand washing and stockpiling on a compact chassis and enabling the production of 4 products to a required specification.
Over the last 20 years CDE Global has established itself as a leading supplier of wet processing technology for quarries and mines with equipment operating throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, Latin America and North America. The success to date in North America, particularly along the East Coast, has led to the formation of CDE Global Inc. A new base in North Carolina, in conjunction with a new US Partner, American Crushers and Screens LLC, will facilitate further growth throughout the US.
According to Tony Convery, Chairman and Founder of CDE Global the arrival of the company in the USA signifies a significant development of the washing and classification equipment available in the US market. "We have spent considerable time in the US over the last 18 months and this has confirmed to us that there are huge opportunities for us to help operators to improve the efficiency of their operations" he says.
Mr Convery goes on to highlight the modular nature of their equipment range – a range of products that integrate a number of different processes onto a single chassis. He outlines some of the benefits of this as rapid deployment, reduced plant footprint and increased production efficiencies all done in partnership with a commitment to ensuring quick, easy and safe maintenance access for all operational personnel.
"Our equipment range, including the new M4500, has been designed around the requirements of the industry in the 21st century" explains Mr Convery. "We pre-wire and pre-build every unit before it leaves our factory to ensure that once we get to site we can have the plant up and running in the shortest possible time. The integration of several processes on a single chassis not only minimises installation time and the plant footprint but also delivers maximum production efficiencies through a focus on transfer point technology. There are also significant benefits to be enjoyed from the removal of the requirement to build large supporting structures to accommodate the processing plant."
The equipment on offer from CDE Global can be applied across a wide range of materials that can be classified under four headings – Construction, Mining, Industrial Sands and Environmental.
On the construction materials side they come with an extensive project portfolio including projects with sand and gravel, crushed rock, scalpings and C&D waste recycling. The Mining applications for the CDE equipment include iron ore, bauxite, copper and gold as well as significant expertise in fines recovery and tailings management. On the Industrial Sands side they offer equipment for use in the production of glass sands, frac sands, filter sands and specialist golf sands while the Environmental offering includes equipment for sludge screening in utility and industrial applications as well as grit and gulley waste recycling.
CDE has appointed a dedicated US team to develop the US market, led by Kevin McNamee, Business Development Manager for North America. "Our success so far in the US market with construction and recycling projects has highlighted the requirement to have our full range of services located in-country. Our most recent North American project has been a 200tph natural sand and gravel wash plant in North Carolina. The establishment of the new office provides a permanent base for our new US team which will include technical, design, project management and sales functions. We are looking forward to a busy 2014 in the US, with the kick-off being CONEXPO-CON/AGG in early March."
CDE Global Inc. have also recently joined the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and National Stone Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA). Over the coming months they will also be joining a number of regional associations as they seek to build a project portfolio over the coming years.
CONEXPO-CON/AGG is an international gathering place for the construction industries, with a focus on construction, aggregates and ready mixed concrete. The event is held every 3 years at the Las Vegas Convention Center. CDE will be one of 2,400 companies exhibiting the latest technologies and innovations in equipment, products and services for the construction industries. The CDE stand can be found at Booth #9009 in the Platinum Lot area.
Following CONEXPO-CON/AGG, CDE will hold a US open week event in late March. More details and how to register will be published on www.cdeusa.com in early 2014.
