German concrete reclaiming equipment manufacturer Bibko GmbH has launched Bibko North America, LLC, based in Cedar Falls, Iowa, with regional offices in Tracy, Calif., and Lititz, Pa. The move is a bid to expand presence in the U.S. and Canada with multiple locations and warehouses, resulting in faster deliveries and improved service to customers.
Partners in the new entity, shown here from left, include Scott Humphrey of DHE Inc.; Bibko GmbH Vice President Frank Häussermann; Randy Howe of ATS, Inc.; and Jay Robinson and Owen Blevins of Mid Atlantic Concrete Equipment, Inc.
“We’re providing what we believe to be the industry’s most advanced zero-waste, zero-discharge concrete recycling system for precast and ready mixed producers,” said Blevins. “It has long been a challenge for concrete producers to properly dispose of unused concrete and the associated process water, which is highly alkaline.”
The company expects to announce additional dealerships in 2011, joining charter dealers Mid Atlantic Concrete Equipment (East); Advanced Technical Services (Midwest); Dave Humphrey Enterprises, Inc. (West); and Transco (Northwest and Canada). A site under construction, www.concretereclaiming.com, will represent Bibko North America and provide education, tools and resources about concrete reclaiming and water recycling.
