Rock & Recycling Equipment LLC held its official grand opening and open house on Thursday, Nov. 9th at their new location, 79 Worcester Providence Turnpike in Sutton, MA. The winning team of Brendan Fox, Shane Fleming and Mike Lanchanski are working together again for McCloskey International as a full-service dealer serving Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine representing McCloskey International Equipment. The new additions to the team include Mike Conway Jr., (sales), Steve French (Service), and Lisa Stuart (Parts).
Fleming, after a brief period away from the industry, and Fox, after taking some time representing another manufacturer, joined forces in 2016 to start the new independent dealership. The two partners are excited about the positive results they’ve had this past year after moving the company from Devins to the high visibility Sutton, MA location and reworking the name from Rock & Recycling Solutions to Rock & Recycling Equipment, LLC.
According to their website, they proudly offer new and used portable aggregate processing equipment for sale or rental and “stand behind the superior McCloskey International product and their extensive line of trommel screens, stackers, flat deck screeners and crushers.”
Fleming commented, “We’ve had a very strong first year. Better than we had anticipated — we’re very happy.” They’d had a plan from the beginning to get the yard cleaned up in order to host something. The fast moving plans for the open house were just the motivation they needed. The huge yard was perfect for displaying over a dozen pieces of equipment with plenty of walk around room and the large indoor service area served as commissary for a the barbeque buffet for the day.
John Tucker, representing Newport Construction Corp.’s materials division, was one of many satisfied clients who stopped in during the day. Newport Recycling currently owns 10 pieces of McCloskey International Equipment, including portable jaw, cone, and impact crushers. They operate out of a 230-acre facility utilizing the equipment for both recycle and quarry applications. They run McCloskey equipment almost exclusively. Tucker commented one of the main selling points for them is the exceptional service offered through the McCloskey brand. “We’re easygoing guys and to this day I don’t mind doing the work myself — especially if it’s a quick fix — but if it’s something a little bigger, I know I have the support from Rock & Recycling. Brendan or Shane will answer my phone night or day and that’s all I ask.”
He went on to say he also appreciated their honesty in dealing with him. “Both Shane and Brendan will say, ‘John, this is the way it is.’ I’d rather hear ‘Hey, I can’t get there right away.’ Then I know what I have to deal with and can change the game plan. They have been good at communicating with us, and we appreciate that.”
“Rock and Recycling Equipment’s new location is strategically placed to be able to serve their growing customer base across New England,” said Julie Andras, global marketing and communications manager for McCloskey International. “Their rapid growth is a result of solid in-the-field experience, excellent customer relationships, and their dedication to our product lines.”
