Demo & recycling: MSC holds demo event in Auckland

Customers and visitors travelled from near and far to see working demonstrations of MSC equipment in action at a recycling demo day held at Trow Group’s yard in Ranui, Auckland

TDS 820 Slow Speed Shredder

Being one of New Zealand’s largest commercial deconstruction companies, Trow Group is an industry expert and believes there’s huge value in supporting a circular economy. The business delivers full project, life cycle services through salvaging and recycling thousands of tonnes of construction materials every year.

The event featured an on-site area that housed live demos showcasing Terex Ecotec and EvoQuip equipment

"We felt Trow Group was an ideal business to partner with, as their ethos of reducing the stream to landfills of useable waste fits perfectly with our recycling machinery that’s designed to reduce the impact of waste on the environment," says Catrina Quinn MSC marketing manager.
