The U.S. Shredder and Castings Group, headquartered in Trussville, Ala., has entered into a supplier partnership with the Italian firm BBM S.p.A. Under the partnership agreement U.S. Shredder will support BBM’s marketing and engineering team to supply equipment and castings to Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey and India. The new venture will manufacture the company’s line of shredder systems as well as provide support to other brands of shredders.

Established in 1965 as a heavy fabricator, BBM has extended is manufacturing portfolio into the railways sector and markets its equipment throughout the world. The company also operates a fabrication facility in India, which will support that local market.

“Our growth has always been based on being able to provide the best equipment and service in the areas we cover. After being completely established in North America, we have successfully ventured into Mexico and South America with local support partners. The resources that BBM have in place will allow us to provide the best system and support in these new markets. It’s one thing to sell a system, it’s quite another to support it properly,” says Bill Tigner, U.S. Shredder president

The US Shredder and Castings Group offers scrap shredders, control systems, downstream systems, nonferrous recovery, air systems, scrap shears, balers, and loggers; as well as shredder castings, service, engineering and consulting to the worldwide scrap industry.
