- Plessisville, Quebec-based Machinex Group, which designs and produces custom-made recycling equipment, has changed ownership. Nicolas Belanger has sold his stock in the company, leaving Pierre Paré as Machinex's sole owner.
- The company has also restructured its managerial sales team, promoting Chris Hawn, David Marcouiller, and Jonathan Menard. These promotions will "ensure continued customer relations, guarantee technical expertise, and oversee company development," according to a press statement.
- "This revamped Sales and Engineering Managerial Team guarantees that Machinex will stay among the world leaders in the sorting technologies field and also ensures that our customers enjoy the benefits of advanced technologies and personalized approaches for their specific needs," the press release states.
As Machinex aims to expand in the North American market, the restructuring of internal staff will help keep the company competitive, according to a press statement.
Machinex has recently been very active in assisting recycling companies with the construction of MRFs and various recycling facilities. In March, the company helped launch Chicago's Lakeshore Recycling after equipping the facility with sorting technology capable of processing 20 tons of waste per hour.
Additionally, in February, Machinex teamed with UK-based Krysteline Technologies to distribute glass implosion technology and equipment to Machinex's existing MRFs and material handling technologies in North America.
