Superior's washing expert and Hall of Fame inductee retires

Frank Squires, washing expert at Superior Industries

Superior Industries' washing product specialist, Frank Squires, is retiring after a 60-plus year career serving the aggregates industry. 

Squires was a mentor to dozens of producers and manufacturers during his long, storied career including many colleagues in Superior's wet processing segment.

"Early on, he put me in the right situations and pointed me in the right direction so I could learn from him and others," says John Bennington, a colleague at Superior who considers Squires a mentor. "So many people learned many technical details from him that were essential to our own achievements."

Squires is an innovator and world-renowned expert in washing and classifying technologies. His work has earned five patents for the companies he served. Particularly, he is a co-inventor of computer control systems for classifying tanks. Squires is a 2018 inductee into the Pit & Quarry Hall of Fame.

"On behalf of all of our employees at Superior, I want to express our deepest gratitude to Frank," says Bennington. "His generosity of time, passion for customers and patience to teach have made us all better people inside and outside of work."

LOAD 60 TONS IN JUST FOUR PASSES WITH VOLVO

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.     

When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
