With the completion of the first C50 model jaw crusher, McCloskey International had introduced the worldwide aggregate industry to a new family of portable crushing plants.
With the official launch of the heavy-duty track-mounted 50-in. (127 cm) jaw crusher, President and Founder Paschal McCloskey announced plans to bring a complete range of jaw crushers, cone crushers and impact crushers to McCloskey customers.
“Crushing equipment is a natural next step in the evolution of McCloskey International. We have earned an international reputation for top-of-the-line quality, innovation and customer support. We also have proven that we know how to listen to customers and turn their needs into successful new products with world-class engineering and manufacturing. As industry leaders in screening equipment, we feel that it’s time we began delivering complete aggregate productivity solutions for our customers with a series of crushing plants that carry the McCloskey name.”
At the core of the new C50 model jaw crusher is a 50- by 26-in. (127 by 66 cm) single toggle jaw developed in partnership with Telsmith Inc.
Telsmith, an Astec Industries company, has been a recognized leader in stone processing equipment for more than 100 years. In addition to its own lines of aggregate production equipment, Telsmith also is a major force in the engineering and supply of specialized components for other equipment manufacturers.
“We had every confidence that Telsmith would make an excellent partner for us,” said McCloskey.
