Bandit Industries Inc. and Germany-based ARJES GmbH are partnering to bring ARJES' line of slow-speed shredders and crushers to Bandit customers worldwide.
Bandit is adding ARJES' select models of slow-speed industrial shredders and stone crushers to its lineup of heavy-duty large equipment that already includes The Beast® horizontal grinders, whole tree chippers, and track carriers. Bandit large equipment dealers from select markets will offer sales, service and parts on ARJES machines. Those Bandit dealers will be introduced to ARJES equipment in early June at Bandit's mid-Michigan facilities.
"ARJES equipment fits perfectly in our full product line," said Bandit Sales Manager Jason Morey. "ARJES believes in the same principles that guide Bandit Industries - build machines strong and stand behind customers every step of the way. It's what both of our companies have done, Bandit for 35 years, and ARJES for more than 10 years, and it's what we'll continue to do."
The ARJES VZ 950 Titan slow-speed shredder can handle material of nearly any kind. The 950 comes standard with a Volvo 700 horsepower Bandit Tier 4 Final engine. Special designs help these shredders operate more efficiently than the competition, stretching out every gallon of fuel and extending the life of cutting tools. The VZ 950 Titan can handle everything from waste wood and logs to domestic and industrial waste and scrap metal/car bodies.
ARJES stone crushers come with a Volvo 220 horsepower Tier 4 Final engine and pack unbelievable rock-crushing power in a compact package. The tracked unit makes it easy to position in work yards and on job sites, and the machine's special two-stage crushing process handles the hardest materials, from rubble, concrete, asphalt, and stones.
Under the leadership of Norbert and Tetyana Hammel ARJES was founded in 2007 at the current location in Leimbach/Thuringia in the heart of Germany. It started with a staff of just 19 people dedicated to a vision of innovation and economical shredders for the recycling industry. ARJES has grown in the last 10 years, adding individual shredding and screening solutions for waste wood, green waste, biomass, plastics, paper, domestic and industrial waste, scrap metal, used tires and other materials.
Bandit Industries has been involved in manufacturing durable, heavy-duty equipment for recycling, forestry, land clearing and tree service companies for more than three decades. Founded in 1983 by Mike Sr. and Dianne Morey., the company has grown from humble beginnings to more than 50 models.
