Telsmith, Inc., a leading manufacturer of mineral processing equipment, will exhibit at the 2019 AGG1 Expo in Indianapolis, Ind. from February 12 to 14 at booth #37078.

Telsmith will display an interactive touch screen and 3D models of the T-Series Cone Crusher, Hydra-Jaw Crusher, and Vibro-King TL Screen models. The sales team will be on hand to discuss how Telsmith goes the extra mile with their concept to completion services.

To showcase the Telsmith promise that “The Extra Mile Isn’t Extra. It’s Included.” they will launch their Crushing Questions video campaign at AGG1 2019 where show attendees can ask their most challenging crushing and screening questions. Attendees who participate will receive an Amazon gift card along with Telsmith branded merchandise. Telsmith’s team of Application Specialists will answer these questions and share the videos on the Telsmith website following the show.

In collaboration with Crushing Questions, Telsmith is partnering with Hire Heroes USA. For every Crushing Question answered at AGG1, Telsmith will donate to Hire Heroes. Hire Heroes is a non-profit organization that empowers U.S. military members, veterans, and military spouses to succeed in the civilian workforce by assisting in resume development, translating military experience into civilian terminology, interview techniques, and more.


“We’re excited to launch this campaign at AGG1 2019,” says Jeff Gray, vice-president of sales and marketing, Telsmith, Inc., “And for the chance to answer attendees crushing questions while helping such an important organization.”

The story behind Hire Heroes USA

In 2004, U.S. Army SGT Justin Callahan was severely injured in a landmine explosion while on patrol in Afghanistan. He returned to the U.S. as a patient at Walter Reed Army Medical center – a far cry from where he’d been while serving overseas. After seven surgeries, including a below-the-knee amputation, as well as extensive physical therapy, SGT Callahan embarked on a long road to recovery. While still in treatment, SGT Callahan happened to meet then MedAssets CEO John Bardis. The two formed an immediate bond, and when Bardis learned Callahan’s biggest concern was his uncertainty about his future, he offered him a job on the spot. It was through that chance encounter that Bardis discovered the true plight of unemployed veterans. Bardis then created what is now Hire Heroes USA to provide personalized job search assistance for transitioning U.S. military members, veterans and military spouses.
