Five years of crushing and screeningPublished 27/9 at 15:36
EvoQuip, a compact crushing and screening brand with products that focus on simplicity, easy maintenance, fuel efficiency and ease of transport, recently celebrated five successful years in business via a virtual hour long celebration attended by almost 100 distributor representatives from around the world.
Launched at Hillhead in 2016 to bring a simplified range of equipment to the crushing and screening industry, EvoQuip has grown from strength to strength to become a major compact crushing and screening brand. Starting out with the ‘Bison 35 crusher’, which is said to be capable of 30t/h, EvoQuip continued to introduce innovative products with the ‘Cobra 290R’, which is now the biggest crusher in its range, capable of 320t/h. On the screening side, EvoQuip’s products have evolved ranging from the ‘Harrier 220’, a small yet robust machine designed for recycling, composting, topsoil, landscaping, and contract building industries, capable of 90t/h, to the highly aggressive scalping screen ‘Colt 1600’, which was built upon the features which have made the ‘Colt 1000’ a global success. The Colt 1600 is the largest screen in the EvoQuip range and can process up to 661t/h, depending on application.
EvoQuip’s range has also developed to include tracked mobile conveyors, high and low level feeders and radial stockpilers, all designed to work alongside its range of crushing and screening equipment. More recently, hybrid offerings, designed to give customers alternative energy options to operate their equipment and digital solutions, such as ‘T-Link’ telemetry, provide customers with real time information on the performance of the machine, have been at the forefront of EvoQuip’s evolution to address emerging industry needs.
EvoQuip would not be the success it is without its loyal dealers and customers. While the brand started off in 2016 with just five dealers, this has since grown to 44 dealers from around the globe. This growing distribution network alongside attendance of exhibitions such as ConExpo, bauma, World of Concrete and Hillhead continued to strengthen the brand, showcasing its offering to global audiences.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, EvoQuip had to change initial celebratory plans for its milestone from an in person event to a virtual one. Hosted by Northern Irish actor and comedian, Tim McGarry, dealers were treated to a personalised EvoQuip song, a timeline of the last five years, a live quiz where some of the team members’ knowledge was put to the test, a raffle and the first ever EvoQuip Dealer Awards.
The EvoQuip Dealer Awards included several categories such as Global Leader in Industry Growth and Customer Support and Rental Business Growth, to name a few. Among the winners were Mobile Screening and Crushing (MSC) from New Zealand which won Global Dealer of the Year. MSC is a strong dealer in all areas and engage extremely well with the EvoQuip team. It achieves sales targets, has a strong online presence and is wholly invested in the EvoQuip brand. It is a partnership that will continue to flourish and grow.
Speaking of the last five years, Barry O’Hare, business line director, EvoQuip said, “EvoQuip brings value to customers by providing intuitive equipment that is simple to operate and maintain, fuel efficient and easy to transport. User friendliness is at the heart of our brand and as new products have been developed, the focus has always been on simplicity and entry level customers. Since joining EvoQuip over two years ago, I have seen the business grow from strength to strength and we couldn’t do that without our global distribution network.
“It is with the dedication of the EvoQuip team and the relationships we have built with our dealers that has enabled us to grow and maintain our place at the forefront of the compact crushing and screening world. I’d like to thank our dealers and customers for their support over the last five years and together we look forward to the future. There are some really exciting, innovative products in the pipeline and with the help and expertise of our distribution network, we will continue to grow and dominate the global compact crushing, screening and conveying market.”
