Volvo Penta has announced a new partnership with the world´s largest independent crushing and screening company, McCloskey International. McCloskey will install Volvo Penta D8, D11 and D13 engines in their range of mobile jaw, cone and impactor crushers and the Volvo Penta D5 engine will be installed in mobile screeners. The announcement comes as the first McCloskey crusher with a Volvo Penta engine makes its debut at three industry shows. The high-capacity J45 heavy-duty jaw crusher was on display at the National Heavy Equipment Show in Toronto, Canada, on March 5 and 6; Baltimore´s World of Asphalt, March 17-19; and will also be showcased at the international Intermat exhibition in Paris, April 20-25.
During the past two years, McCloskey worked closely with Volvo Penta, holding regular meetings and keeping in constant contact not only with Volvo sales managers and engineers but also a business development manager. ´That, for us, was one of Volvo Penta´s key selling points,´ said John O´Neill, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for McCloskey.
