Member News: Vecoplan Announces New Location in Southern California
April 26, 2022
The new facility in Eastvale, California, provides a location for the company to more effectively service regional customers, including Mexico, with technical service and replacement parts.
Vecoplan, a global leader in industrial shredders and shredding and recycling technology, recently opened a new location in Eastvale, California to accommodate its customers and company growth in the western region. The outfit is a leader in material shredding and recycling technologies.
The new office is the third location for the company, after its North American headquarters in North Carolina and a regional office in Indiana. “The western states and northern Mexico – and Southern California in particular – has a multitude of manufacturing facilities in the markets we sell to,” says CEO Frank Boerjan. “Opening an office in California was the logical next step for us to support those customers and our growth strategy. This location is close to a network of major highways for our replacement part distribution and only twenty minutes from the Ontario airport. Regional customers can easily access us for visits, and we can now service them more quickly in return.”
A local Southern California customer officially anointed the in-house technology center with a plastics material shredding trial in April. The customer asked to remain unidentified due to its proprietary technology, as it specializes in recycling complex, multi-layered polymers.
Also housed at this Vecoplan office is a team of service technicians to perform maintenance and repair for the western half of the country. According to Bill Davison, vice president of operations, the team travels regularly to Colorado, Arizona and Nevada for machine maintenance and system installation projects. “We are quicker to respond to the customers out here with this local team,” comments Davison. They can drive or fly to customer in half the time that our other location service techs can.”
The company hosted a grand opening for the new location in March with local government officials and its German and US leadership teams.
