Wendt Corp., headquartered in Buffalo, New York, has announced the sale of an MTB Cable Box to Gershow Recycling, Medford, New York. The sale represents the fourth such unit to be sold since its launch last year and the second in recent weeks.
Gershow Recycling is a second-generation, family-owned business that has been serving the scrap industry since 1964. With more than 750 employees, the company operates nine locations in Suffolk County, Nassau County and Brooklyn in New York. Gershow prides itself on operating modern, technically advanced processing facilities while offering competitive prices and a high level of customer service.
Wendt Demo Days took place the week of June 26, 2017, and provided companies with the opportunity to see four different material types (shredder wire, No. 1 copper wires, aluminum cables and aluminum copper radiators) processed with the Cable Box system.
“After seeing the Cable Box demonstration of running shredder wire, we came to the conclusion that this system would be a good fit for our operation,” says Sam Gershowitz,
Gershow’s Cable Box features a BDR 1245 shredder, two BAT 800 granulators, air density tables, screens, magnetic separators and integrated electrical controls and dust collection system. This containerized, turnkey solution incorporates a complete cable recycling line using two 40-foot containers, one 20-foot container and one 10-foot container. Although smaller in size and footprint, Wendt says the system shares the same robust and advanced design as MTB’s larger systems, enabling it to efficiently treat lower-quality cables while delivering highly valuable output materials. Designed to process up to 3 tons per hour, the system can process shredder wire as well as aluminum conductor, steel-reinforced (ACSR) cable, armored (BX) cable, direct burial (URD) cable, Category 5 cable, tubing encapsulated cable (TEC), “jelly” cable and
“We are so proud and excited to announce the sale of one more Cable Box to Gershow,” says Jean-Phillipe
