Powerscreen dealer, Terex Washing Systems host open day

By |  March 28, 2016

Powerscreen of California & Hawaii and Terex Washing Systems (TWS) hosted California Open Day to commemorate Powerscreen of California & Hawaii’s 30th anniversary and the opening of its new facility in Dixon, Calif.

“This year, we’re [Powerscreen of California & Hawaii] celebrating 30 years in business, which is an awesome feat, and a testament to [Powerscreen of California & Hawaii founder and president] Paul Campbell and his commitment to the area, to his employees, and to the customer base and the market here,” says Andrew Gillen, project manager for Powerscreen of California & Hawaii. “We cover all of California and Hawaii, and we’re the leading independent dealer for materials processing equipment on the West Coast.”

The companies opened their event with an evening reception. The following day, guests traveled to the new facility, which boasts five acres of concrete to showcase equipment.

Equipment from six companies was featured at the event, including that of Powerscreen, Terex Washing Systems, Terex Minerals Processing Systems (MPS), Terex Environmental Equipment, MGL Engineering, Telestack and Matec. A variety of machines from each company were on display, including Powerscreen’s Premiertrak 600 and 1150 Maxtrak; Terex MPS’ Cedarapids CRC1150 portable cone plant; and Terex Washing Systems’ AggreSand 206.

“The Open Event came about as a brainstorm between TWS and ourselves back in late 2015,” Campbell says. “It allowed our existing and potential customers to see the full portfolio of equipment across the quarrying, mining, recycling, environmental, composting and water treatment sectors which we can offer. Each of the business lines we represent had senior level management and technical staff at the event, which allowed our customers to see the close working relationship we have with each respective company.”

Guests were later taken to Sierra Silica Resources in Oroville, Calif., where they were able to view Terex Washing Systems’ AggreSand 206 in action amid a green, mountainous landscape.

“The AggreSand 206 is basically designed to be a modular, pre-wired wash plant that can be delivered anywhere in the world in six to seven shipping containers,” says Andrew Pickering, national sales manager for the United States for Terex Washing Systems. “It has the capabilities of making three washed aggregates and two sand products. Customers will find that the accessibility around the machine for service is better than anything that’s currently in the market. Once it’s set up, and we’ve commissioned, it’s a matter of switching it on every day and making it run.”

The California Open Day concluded with a dinner in Napa Valley, Calif., where Campbell was honored for his work in the industry.

“It’s a celebration of where the companies came from, where they’re at right now and, more importantly, where we want to go to,” Gillen says.
