powerscreen-quarry-webMarch 11, 2012, Dungannon, Northern Ireland – 2012 – Powerscreen, one of the world’s
leading providers of mobile crushing, screening and washing equipment, recently
hosted a World Dealer Conference in Cape Town, South Africa. More than 300 dealers
and customers travelled from across the world to attend the conference,  which included a site visit and the
opportunity to enjoy some of Cape Town’s finest entertainment. 

Damian Power, Global Product Line Director,
said, “Cape Town is one of the most exciting venues in the world and was an
easy choice as our host city.  South
Africa is a growing market and as the country’s construction and roadbuilding segments
continue to grow in conjunction with a thriving mining industry, it is a key
strategic market for the complete Powerscreen® product range.  We have a long history in South Africa with
ELB Equipment Ltd, who have consistently delivered an excellent record of
customer service.”

The conference enabled us to strengthen the relationship with our dealer
network from across the world, to gain significant insight into market trends
and learn how we can better serve our loyal customer base in the years
ahead.  The breadth and versatility of
the Powerscreen product portfolio was clearly highlighted at the end of the
week, during the site visit where four different machine configurations were on


A remarkable demonstration was held at Portland Quarry, where 10
machines in total were operational. The first plant featured the large
processing capacities of the XA750S jaw crusher with the Warrior 2400 screen.
The second plant consisted of an XA400S jaw crusher, 1300 Maxtrak cone crusher,
H6203 screen, 1000SR recirculating cone crusher and a Chieftain 2100X 3 Deck
screen. Then working alone was the XH320SR impact crusher.
For the first time ever
at a Powerscreen event, a working washing plant was also on display:
Chieftain 1700 Rinser screen and a
Finesmaster 120 Bucketwheel dewatering plant.

Richard Grant, Dealer Principal for Powerscreen Florida, said, “Powerscreen
hosted a well-organized event that bought together factory personnel, the
dealership network and customers in an atmosphere that was both informative and
relaxing. Cape Town served as an excellent backdrop for the conference and the
excursions away from the hotel.”
