Quarry supplier to launch new enviro arm at open day

OPS Group will host the event at its new Jandakot headquarters in Perth, Western Australia from 5 to 6 November, opening the facility up to customers as well as the wider public.

“This is the perfect opportunity for OPS to celebrate both our strong and very proud history, as well as our bright future with the launch of some exciting new product lines and expansions to existing lines,” OPS director Shane Czerkasow commented.

“We expect the schedule to attract a broad cross-section of industry participants and look forward to welcoming a host of international, domestic and local suppliers, customers, industry stakeholders, dignitaries and media to our events.”

In addition to showcasing some of the latest quarrying equipment through presentations and demonstrations – such as the Terex Finlay C-1545 tracked cone crusher, Terex Washing Systems FM120C Fines Master and Tristar crusher and safety tooling – the event will also act as a launch pad for the business’s new division, OPS Environmental Equipment.

The perfect partner

OPS Environmental Equipment will supply products from Terex Environmental Equipment (TEE) and Kiverco Recycling Plant, including trommels and recycling screens equipped with Spaleck-branded technology. The new division will also supply machinery for the wood processing and biomass production sectors.

“The market is really embracing the recycling, wood processing and biomass production segments at present, and we believe the timing is perfect for OPS to enter this space,” OPS group sales manager Kieran Hawkes explained. “Great equipment requires great back-up and support, and we believe this is a well matched partnership that will deliver quality outcomes for customers of these industries.”

Tony Devlin, TEE’s global business line director, also expressed his excitement for the strengthened partnership between Terex and OPS. “OPS’s demonstrated ability to offer innovative, quality products and services makes them the perfect partner to support customers with applications, support and service,” he said.

TEE’s Ecotec range and Kiverco’s recycling plant will be amongst the machinery on show.

Since its establishment in 1989, OPS has expanded to become one of the largest distributors of OEM equipment to the quarrying, mining, construction, earthmoving, recycling, materials handling and materials processing industries.

Through its facilities in Perth, Darwin and Adelaide, OPS distributes equipment to quarries nationwide from manufacturers including Terex Corporation, Telestack, Kiverco, Tristar and Banlaw.
