Industrial shredder manufacturer Granutech-Saturn Systems, based in Grand Prairie, Texas, has appointed the MSA Group’s Recycling Division, based in Bogota, Colombia, as its exclusive distributor for Central and South America (excluding Mexico). The MSA Group is a privately held Latin American distribution company with U.S. headquarters in Florida and regional offices in South America.
During the Exposucata event, the MSA Group will represent Granutech’s product portfolio, including Granutech’s line of Saturn one-, two- and four-shaft shredders; Saturn’s Grizzly grinders; Granutech’s granulators and refiner mills, and the MAC auto crushers. The 10th Exposucata expo is set for Aug. 19-21, 2014, in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
MSA Group’s Recycling Division specializes in systems designed for various recycling applications, including tire recycling, biomass and waste-to-energy processing and ferrous and nonferrous metals size reduction.
“With the addition of Granutech to our second-to-none portfolio, we now close the loop with cutting edge solutions for our customers’ needs for tire processing and other recycling applications delivered locally by trained Granutech sales and support specialists who understand the dynamics of the international markets we serve, says George Lanza, president of MSA Group. “It is an honor to be a part of Granutech’s legacy of quality and workmanship, and our portfolio is now stronger and better than ever. We are providing the right solutions to our customers’ present and future needs, with local presence and personalized attention.”
“Granutech is excited to move forward with the MSA organization,” says Matthew Morrison, vice president of Granutech-Saturn Systems. “We felt they possessed the right combination of sales experience, equipment integration capabilities and local market facilities and resources to leverage Granutech’s already strong market presence into additional growth in one of the world’s most vibrant industrial markets.”
