McCourt & Sons Equipment Inc are based in La Grange, Texas and have over 65 years combined industry experience in the supply of sand and aggregate processing equipment. In addition to the headquarters in La Grange the company also covers Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
The agreement will see McCourt & Sons Equipment Inc represent the full range of washing and classification equipment that CDE Global offer those in the construction materials, construction & demolition waste recycling, mining and specialist industrial sands sectors.
Speaking about the partnership, CDE Regional Manager in North America, Joel Prince said “McCourt & Sons is a name associated with quality equipment, excellent customer service and above all a capability to work with customers to identify issues with their existing processing plant and develop a system that improves efficiency. This matches our own approach to the design and execution of successful materials washing projects and we are very excited about the opportunities that will present themselves as a result of our new partnership.”
Over the last 12 months the two companies have been working together in North America on a number of projects and there are currently five projects in production. This follows the debut for CDE at ConExpo, Las Vegas in March 2014. “We expect 2015 to be a very significant year for CDE in North America” explains Joel Prince. “The work we have done over the last 12 months has seen us win a number of new projects and these will all become operational over the next 2-3 months. This will give us significant coverage across the US and will be the catalyst that will allow us to maximise the opportunity that exists for our equipment in North America.”
Founder and President of CDE Global, Tony Convery was also closely involved in developing the relationship with McCourts and he said “When we’re looking for new partners there are some key characteristics that we look for – significant industry expertise in the materials washing arena, technical capability, strong customer networks, a great reputation and the ability to provide our customers with best in class service and support. The team at McCourt & Sons ticked all these boxes.”
McCourt & Sons made the decision to approach CDE having looked at their product range and project portfolio across the world and identifying a number of opportunities for the introduction of their washing equipment range in North America. “From the introduction of the EvoWash sand washing plant to existing operations to large turnkey projects the potential for CDE equipment is huge” explains Paul McCourt, President at McCourt & Sons. “The efficiencies that the EvoWash can bring to existing sand washing operations in terms of maximising production, minimising waste and increasing the value of the washed sand product is proven across the world and when we looked at the existing provision in this area in North America the size of the opportunity became very clear.”
Another key factor for McCourt & Sons was the modular nature of the CDE equipment range. “We believe that the CDE equipment range has been designed to meet the specific requirements of today’s industry – it’s quick to set up, integrates several processing phases on to a single chassis, requires minimal space on site and is built to last. This is what our customers are looking for with the equipment they invest in” says Paul McCourt.
The CDE product range includes the EvoWash sand washing plant, ProGrade screens for quarrying and mining applications, dewatering screens, the RotoMax logwasher and AggMax portable logwasher as well as the AquaCycle thickener and filter presses to allow operators to efficiently manage wastewater from their wash plant. The company also offers a range of products including fine sand screens, attrition cells and density separation systems for use in the production of specialist industrial sands.
CDE Global and McCourt & Sons will be organising a demonstration event in Texas during August 2015 where visitors will have the opportunity to see CDE equipment in action. Further details on this event will be published on the CDE website over the coming weeks.
