Mon April 23, 2007 - Southeast Edition

Stafford has selected Arthur Leonard to be its crushing and screening manager for the Carolinas.

He is based out of Stafford’s West Columbia, S.C., branch and works closely with all of Stafford’s salesmen in the Carolinas.

Mike Davis, vice president and general manager of Stafford’s Carolinas locations said, “With more than 23 years experience in the crushing and screening equipment business, on both the manufacturer and dealer sides, Arthur Leonard has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to matching the best machine with the customers’ specific needs.”

Stafford has recently become the authorized dealer for Astec mobile screens and KPI-JCI (Kolberg-Pioneer Inc. & Johnson Crushers International Inc.) in the Carolinas, Georgia and Virginia.

Both manufacturers are members of the Astec Industries family that develop, manufacture and market solutions for the material handling, mining, quarry and recycling industries.

KPI-JCI manufactures crushing and screening equipment, track mount plants, washing/classifying equipment and materials handling equipment lines that are engineered and manufactured in the United States and supported by two factories.

Astec Mobile Screens manufactures Vari-Vibe and Duo-Vibe high frequency screens and offers a broad line of mobile, stationary and portable screening solutions.

Leonard knows both of the manufacturers very well and has great things to say about the quality that Stafford now offers.

“Both Astec Mobile Screens and KPI-JCI provide highly durable products that will show an almost immediate ROI to our customers, due to the products’ versatility,” he said.

Stafford President and CEO John D. Wall said, “We’re very excited to be entering the crushing and screening arena by representing these two high quality manufacturers at all of our locations and are very happy that Arthur Leonard has joined our team to help our salesmen promote the products across the Carolinas.”
