The acquisition is part of a programme of growth and development and allows Vecoplan to carry a substantial stock of tools, spares and wear parts in the UK, and to offer service and maintenance contracts to its growing client base.
The addition of Almac's substantial resources has cemented Vecoplan's position as the preferred choice for shredding and chipping equipment, conveyors, screens, separation equipment and materials handling systems and equipment.
Vecoplan are world leaders in waste processing, RDF production, plastics processing and recycling, document destruction, wood processing and biomass fuel production.
Vecoplan's Managing Director, Jerry Quickenden commented, “It is most important to us that our clients have continuity of production and we endeavour to maintain the integrity of their Vecoplan equipment at all times. The acquisition of Almac will allow us to deliver these very high levels of service to an ever increasing number of clients.”
