Company Wrench has recently begun carrying Rockster products. The equipment dealer marked this significant partnership with an event at its Williamstown, N.J., location on Sept. 18, where it unveiled the Rockster R1000S track-mounted impact crusher.

Construction Equipment Guide (CEG) was there as Company Wrench employees started up the R1000S and used an excavator to feed it various chunks of miscellaneous concrete and broken up Jersey barriers. The R1000S easily crushed the material, sorting out the bits of rebar and other debris as it went. Soon, a neat pile of recycled concrete pieces was all that remained.

Michael Gilamartin, the East Coast regional manager for Company Wrench, said the partnership with Rockster gave Company Wrench the opportunity to expand their opportunities. When dealing with the niche demolition market, “our customers needed a product like [the R1000S],” he said.

“I'm very excited about having this quality product,” said Gilmartin. “For us, it expands our capabilities to provide our customers with an additional revenue generator.”
