CBI and Terex Ecotec add Midwestern dealer Wood processing and recycling equipment lines now carried by North Dakota-based General Equipment. Fargo, North Dakota-based General Equipment & Supplies, Inc. has agreed to represent both CBI and Terex Ecotec equipment lines in the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa. “The appointment will strengthen customer support for Terex’s environmental equipment brands in the territory,” states Connecticut-based Terex in a news release. General Equipment was founded in 1984 with a “primary focus” to supply heavy construction and aggregate equipment to the construction, mining, and oil exploration industries while also serving the equipment needs of municipalities, according to Terex. The equipment dealership firm has grown to employ more than 250 people and operate from 10 locations: Fargo, Minot, Bismarck, and Williston, North Dakota; Rapid City and Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Shakopee, Duluth and Hibbing, Minnesota; and Urbana, Iowa. “As the demand for environmental equipment increases throughout the United States, we’re ensuring the support capacity for CBI and Ecotec strengthens in each territory,” says George Wilcox, sales and marketing director for CBI and Ecotec. He continues, “Appointing General Equipment to the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Iowa helps achieve that objective. We’re confident that General Equipment will provide the responsive and quality support our customers expect, while being great ambassadors for our equipment.” CBI manufactures a line of horizontal grinders, industrial wood chippers, flail debarkers, screens, stacking conveyors, stationary systems and attachments. Terex Ecotec’s product portfolio consists of shredders, trommel screens, recycling screens, metal separators and conveyors. Bulk Handling Systems (BHS), a sorting systems and components manufacturer based in Eugene, Oregon, has named Christopher Ulum managing director of its National Recovery Technologies (NRT) subsidiary in Nashville, Tennessee. Ulum will oversee all aspects of optical sorting technology manufacturer’s operations, service, sales, product management and finances. Ulum says, “ NRT is a global leader in applying sophisticated technology to help solve the waste and recycling challenges our world faces. Our large global footprint, coupled with our many years of recycling infrastructure experience, worldwide install base and service teams make NRT a trusted partner in the waste and recycling industry. I look forward to working with our passionate team as we continue to advance the technology and grow the company.” Ulum has more than 25 years of industry experience in leadership positions, including president and CEO roles. His background includes large organizations such as Frito-Lay , IBM and Sun Microsystems, as well as small startup companies, such as Agilyx Corp. and Building Energy Inc. Ulum received a B.S. in business from Oregon State University and an MBA from Duke University Fuqua School of Business. “Chris is an exceptional leader with a wide breadth of experience, and we are fortunate to have him come on board to lead NRT,” says BHS CEO Steve Miller. “The application of NRT’s innovative technology in optical, controls and artificial intelligence are changing the industry. Chris will be a vital part of continuing that fast-paced growth while maintaining our high performance, results-oriented and quality focus for our customers.”   Alter Trading Corp., headquartered in St. Louis, has purchased the assets of Gerdau’s St. Paul Barge Channel Road recycling facility in Minnesota. The acquired facility is next to a current Alter location and will allow Alter Logistics to complete the expansion of its St. Paul Terminal’s fertilizer business. Alter says it will hire all the current Gerdau team members. “Gerdau and Alter have a long and mutually beneficial working relationship, and we at Alter appreciate Gerdau’s willingness to help us expand our terminal business,” says Jay Robinovitz, president and CEO of Alter. “We consider Gerdau a strategic trading partner, and we look forward to many years of continued business.” Founded in 1898, Alter is a privately owned, fifth-generation company and is ISO 9001 and 14001 certified.

Redishred Capital Corp., which is headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario, has completed the acquisition of the Proshred Richmond business from its franchisee located in Richmond, Virginia, effective May 1. According to a news release from Redishred, the Richmond location earned about $870,000 in revenue during the 2020 fiscal year and just over $1 million in the 2019 fiscal year. Proshred Richmond currently operates four trucks in the Richmond market. Redishred reports that the acquisition includes on-site paper shredding trucks, containers, client relationships and other assets used in the shredding business. Redishred is the owner of Proshred, which shreds and recycles confidential documents and proprietary materials for customers across the United States in all industry sectors. The Washington-based American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) has expressed its support of “Made in America” stipulations found in a drinking water infrastructure bill that has passed the Senate and in other infrastructure-related actions proposed by the Joe Biden administration and Congress. The United States Senate, by a vote of 89-2, has passed the $36 billion Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Act of 2021. Says AISI President and CEO Kevin Dempsey of that proposed bill, “Importantly, the bill would ensure that all iron and steel products procured for federally funded water infrastructure projects are made in America. The American steel industry is the cleanest and most energy-efficient  of the leading steel industries in the world and manufactures innovative products that are critical to modernizing U.S. water infrastructure.” Also in late April, Dempsey and AISI offered support for comments made by Biden in a speech to a joint session of Congress regarding additional infrastructure-related proposals . “We appreciate President Biden’s commitment in his speech last night to improving our highways, roads and bridges and ensuring taxpayer-funded projects use products made in America —especially the use of American steel, which is among the cleanest steel in the world,” states Dempsey. He continues, “Structural steel made in America, for example, typically contains 90 percent or more recycled content. Our industry provides good-paying jobs, and our workers are critical to the development of the sustainable infrastructure and renewable energy solutions that the president has supported.” Dempsey also has sounded a note of confidence about the role of steel in the rapidly developing electric vehicle (EV) market . Says Dempsey, “As EVs continue to be part of many automakers’ future sustainability plans, steel remains the preferred material for battery pack protection due to its inherent strength. We look forward to continuing to work with the administration to advance these issues and ensure American steel remains the backbone of our economy and essential to promoting sustainable products.”
