Humanity’s endless drive for technological advancement, and the financial rewards that go with it, have not been too kind on the environment. But Wastech Engineering, based in Hallam, Victoria, has made a name for itself by leading Australia’s push towards a cleaner future while returning shareholder value for over 25 years. Now, Wastech have teamed up with Pilot Crushtec International to ensure their position as market leader remains intact for the next 25.
Pilot Crushtec and Wastech Engineering have concluded a distribution agreement which will see Pilot Crushtec’s product range expand into the Australian recycling industry while giving Wastech Engineering the advantage of Pilot’s 30 years of experience in some of the world’s most demanding crushing and screening applications.
With a solutions-driven approach and a 24/7 service team, Wastech shares Pilot Crushtec’s ethos of succeeding by ensuring that their customers succeed. A focus on low cost-per-tonne crushing, impeccable levels of support and excellent product quality have helped Pilot Crushtec achieve international recognition in the crushing and screening sector. Armed with this insight and support, we believe Wastech will continue to lead Australia to a sustainable future while maintaining the service-focused approach that got them to this position.
Wastech’s successful formula has placed a focus on partnering with leading OEMs from around the world and supplementing these strong brands with local manufacturing and industry-leading service levels and a deep knowledge of the Australian recycling and waste management sector.
The initial focus will be on Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste as well as glass recycling. Pilot Crushtec’s range of Modular Horizontal Impact (HSI) crushers and screens are already in use numerous C&D applications around the world and the Twister ™ Vertical Shaft Impact (VSI) crusher line has been successfully deployed in several glass crushing plants within Australia. These two areas have historically seen the most seamless integration into the recycling market for Pilot Crushtec products and are expected to provide a solid platform on which Wastech can build their offering while responding to the changing demands of the recycling industry.
Pilot Crushtec has crushers for all hard and soft rock applications as well as building rubble, bricks and concrete to allow you to manufacture usable raw materials from recycled products. These crushers are complimented by a comprehensive range of screens, feed hoppers and modular style conveyor systems to allow us to design a turnkey project simply and efficiently for your next recycling project.
This partnership also gives Wastech the opportunity to make enter the Australian Mining and Quarrying sector, potentially unlocking much value for both companies as well as for the sector itself. The products which Wastech intend to focus on would be suited to quarries producing high-grade road stone, well-shaped construction aggregate, and various sand specifications. Junior miners would also be targeted, with a specific focus on upgrades to screening capabilities, while the VSI range would be aimed at increasing production while reducing cost-per-ton in pre-milling applications.
We believe the values and business principles shared by Pilot Crushtec and Wastech Engineering will be a solid foundation from which to build a partnership that creates value for customers and stakeholders throughout Australia.
