Strip-Tec now offering J. McIntyre alligator shears.
Strip Technology Inc. (Strip-Tec), Fort Worth, Texas, has recently ordered its second container load of alligator shears manufactured by J. McIntyre Machinery Ltd., Dunkirk, U.K.
“Since having been appointed sole agents for the McIntyre shear range only six months ago, Strip-Tec has placed an order for its second container of equipment,” a news release from the British equipment maker states.
Strip-Tec president Bobby Alexander says his company is carrying J. McIntyre shears in stock at the company’s facility in Fort Worth while also holding a spare parts inventory to offer “excellent back-up support for the McIntyre shear range.”
Sally Johnson, J. McIntyre’s managing director, has also advised North American buyers to deal only with Strip-Tec for the purchase of new J. McIntyre shears.
“J. McIntyre Machinery is keen to stress that Strip-Tec is now the only company authorized to sell new McIntyre equipment following the demise of our former agent McIntyre America in 2001,” says Johnson, referring to a former Ohio-based distributor.
Johnson has asked recyclers who learn of any North American companies offering new McIntyre shears other than Strip-Tec “or its appointed representatives” to contact Strip-Tec in the U.S. at (800) 426-4126 or J. McIntyre Machinery Ltd in the U.K. at +44 115-900-3650. “These machines may not have been authorized for sale by the manufacturer, and as such may be being sold illegally and without the latest operating instructions, warning labels and operator guarding,” Johnson says of equipment offered in North America by someone other than Strip-Tec.Johnson also says any McIntyre customers who purchased their machines from the prior distributor “are encouraged to register their equipment with Strip-Tec in order to receive information on latest equipment updates and allow McIntyre and Strip-Tec to offer full support and competitive pricing on genuine McIntyre spare parts.”
