Granutech-Saturn Systems, Grand Prairie, Texas, has appointed Bogota, Colombia-based MSA Group and its Recycling Division as its distributor for Central and South America, excluding Mexico. MSA Group also has regional offices in Brazil.

The MSA Group will represent Granutech-Saturn’s product portfolio including: Saturn brand single-, double- and four-shaft shredders; Saturn Grizzly brand grinders; Granutech granulators and refiner mills; and MAC auto crushers.

Markets addressed by the two companies in South and Central America will include tire recycling, biomass processing, waste-to-energy processing as well as ferrous and nonferrous metals processing.

“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 possess 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,” he adds.

To highlight the relationship MSA Group says it will feature Granutech-Saturn products at its booth at the Exposucata Brazil event in August 2014.
