EESSCO Celebrates Third Anniversary in Recycling Industry

Mon November 15, 2004 - Northeast Edition

Just three short years ago, Equipment Erection Sales Service Co. (EESSCO) was a new kid on the aggregate and recycling block. Now, EESSCO is a company in the forefront of the aggregate and recycling industry offering crushing equipment, engineering expertise and service on all raggregate and recycling equipment.

EESSCO serves the New York and New England areas from its facility located just south of Boston.

EESSCO, an aggregate products supply company was founded by three aggregate industry veterans: Greg Grey, Dick Vining and Greg Donecker with more than 60 years of combined experience.

Vining, who has 32 years of experience with Allis Chalmers screens and crushers, focuses on aftermarket parts for these units, which according to EESSCO provide substantial savings to its customers.

Although EESSCO specializes in supporting Allis Chalmers equipment, the company also sells Sandvick crushers as well as REMco STAR crushers, which are a variation of the REMco SandMax and RockMax Series, in addition to Phoenix Process Equipment, Universal Engineering, Excel Foundry, and other product lines.

In 2003, PHOENIX Process Equipment Co. appointed EESSCO its exclusive sales representative for the aggregate market in the states of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire.

The Phoenix product line offered by EESSCO can solve and reduce the problems and expenses associated with washing fines in aggregate operations, according to both companies.

The Universal Engineering product line of parts and industrial systems, which EESSCO offers, focus on the aggregate, mining and recycling industries in New York and New England.

When EESSCO took on the Universal Engineering product line, Daniel Ferguson, Universal Engineering CEO said, “We’re thrilled to be working with EESSCO. By aligning EESSCO’s extensive distribution network and solid reputation with Universal Engineering’s industry-leading machines, we’ve formed a truly win-win partnership.”

EESSCO became authorized to sell Excel’s line of replacement parts in 2003. This partnership with Excel added to EESSCO’s extensive line of quality products.

“Picking up Excel allows us to better serve our customers by providing them with the best in aftermarket parts, which, in effect, enables us to serve all of our customers’ machinery,” said Grey.

Since EESSCO opened for business in September 2001, its main focus was to associate itself with manufacturers and products designed to keep customers’ operations running by supplying them with quality products.

When Bill Willard, vice president of Bill Willard Inc., decided to purchase a new jaw crusher, he was pleasantly surprised to find the lowest quote for a new crusher came from nearby EESSCO.

Since 1970, Willard has had a strong relationship with Dick Vining.

“Over the years we have always counted on service above and beyond the call of duty on on-time parts delivery from Dick [Vining] and now with the people at EESSCO,” said Willard. “So you can imagine how happy we were when the lowest quote to replace our jaw came from EESSCO with a Sandvik 32 by 42 1108 jaw crusher. Not only that, the service from EESSCO has been outstanding.

“They helped match up the right plant for our needs. Dick Vining and Mike Southwell were here the day the equipment was delivered, and they helped us with the fabrication process. And all through the process, Dick and Mike were the first ones to roll up their sleeves and pitch in.

“EESSCO had it crushing within three days of delivery. It would have been two days if not for rain on one of the days,” said Willard. “We have been assured that our close affiliation with EESSCO was the right decision. And, down the road, as we look at a new plant and possibly a new portable crusher, EESSCO will be a part of those plans.”

A happy customer is what business is all about. EESSCO thrives on happy customers by offering service and products to the customer’s bottom line.
