Screen Machine is celebrating 50 years in business in 2016. On Thursday, June 23, Screen Machine hosted dealers, suppliers, local, state and federal officials, families of employees and other special guests to its 125,000-square foot facility in Etna, Ohio. According to the company, it was a day to celebrate a great American success story, and to look ahead to a bright future. At the event, Screen Machine debuted about 75 tons of new machinery and welcomed nearly 700 guests for the day.

“Fifty years is a long time,” said President Steve Cohen. “Screen Machine Industries not only survived but prospered through many recessions and wars. A business must adjust to survive.”

In testament to the company’s plans to not only survive, but thrive, in the years to come, Screen Machine debuted two new machines at the 50th Anniversary Celebration:

  • 4043TR Recirculating Impact Crusher – Featuring a two-deck screen fed directly from the crusher, the 4043TR delivers sized product directly from the fines (front) conveyor. Meanwhile a return overs conveyor delivers larger product back to the crusher hopper.
  • 514TS3 Spyder – A triple-deck screen that delivers up to four products simultaneously – fines, small mids, large mids and overs.

“These machines are all about efficiency,” said Doug Cohen, Vice President of Operations. “The 4043TR allows the operator to produce crushed and sized product from a single machine. The return conveyor ensures the product keeps recirculating until it is reduced to the desired size. The 514TS3 adds an additional deck to our mid-priced screening plant.”

In addition to seeing these two new machines, 50th Anniversary attendees enjoyed factory tours led by Screen Machine engineers, were able to “drive a Screen Machine” scalper, had a chance to run a hoist, could visit the I Make America interactive game and had an opportunity to view a crushing and screening demonstration. A barbeque lunch also was provided.

During a brief lunchtime presentation, Screen Machine Founder Bernard Cohen recalled that his accountant told him 50 years ago that nine out of 10 business failed in their first three years. “I wonder what he would say today about our company,” said Mr. Cohen.
