The Recycler’s Guide to Scrap Metal Pricing

We’ve all seen the ads that tell us how valuable our old electronics are. Assuming you have a stack of old electronics—which, you probably do—you might be wondering how much you can really make from selling, say, that old cell phone?

High Quality and Dependable Shredder

By Ashley - 2017-06-28 12:16:04.320

“With our new GK unit we have been able to focus our maintenance attention on other pieces of equipment. Prior to installing the GK unit, we were working daily on our under shredder vibrator, now we just turn it on and it works every-time. We have processed more than 1 million tons with our shredder and have yet to do any required work on our GK under shredder oscillator. We really like the reliability of this unit and the low maintenance requirements.” – Rusty Manning, Riverside Engineering, Inc.

Very Satisfied with General Kinematics

By Tom- 2017-06-28 12:18:04.450

“I wanted to speak about the GK shakers that we have in use. We have used GK shaker units at our Newport, KY plant for as long as 15 years with little or no problems, with very little maintenance and upkeep. These shakers do so well that most of our shredding plants are now using them, simply because they work every day and perform well in every area we use them in. So, if you ask me how the GK products are, then I have to say they really work for us. If we ever would upgrade or change any of these shakers, I would want to stay with General Kinematics, because of the low maintenance cost and the service we get when we need it.” – Arvil Pennington, Plant Operations Manager, River Metals Recycling, Newport, KY

Friendly Customer Service

By mikem- 2017-06-28 12:19:36.813

“After thirteen years I can still call GK, talk to them about new problems or new ways to do things with old equipment, and it’s just like speaking with a good business partner. They understand and they spring into action. Quality workmanship, strong service and a customer focused relationship that’s hard to put a value on. You can’t go wrong.” – Alan Harleston, Facility Manager, Covanta Union Inc.
