MDS announces first major distributor for South Africa

MDS, a leading global provider of heavy-duty rock trommels and conveyors, is pleased to announce the appointment of ELB Equipment (ELB) as their official distributor for South Africa.

ELB is one of a few South African companies who can offer a broad range of earthmoving, construction, mining, and quarrying equipment from a single supplier. The company has established itself as one of the most respected names in the industry.

Raheel Qamar, MDS Business Development explains, “ELB is a logical partner for MDS, since they already represent other Terex brands such as Powerscreen scalpers and screens, which already dominate the local market. The addition of our leading heavy-duty rock trommels will close the circuit for miners who are already familiar with ELB Equipment’s high level of service and minerals processing offerings.”

MDS tracked, static and recycling trommels can handle a wide range of media including blasted rock and riprap, as well as varying substrates such as clay, limestone and even recycled concrete rubble. The rugged ability of the trommels makes them stand out in the market as they can shorten the processing equipment chain onsite – either direct from blasting and loading or from a primary crusher or even recycled materials and composting. It is this ability to speed up processing and handle oversized materials that is most exciting for the local South African market.

ELB Equipment Divisional Director, Wakefield Harding, says “The addition of MDS static and tracked trommels supports our growth strategy to expand our offering into new crushing, screening, and environmental industries, with products that complement our existing portfolio. This range is unmatched in the local market and is simply not available as standard produced machines elsewhere. It will introduce a totally new way of doing things in the local market and is bound to turn up production volumes while increasing profitability on many new and existing plants in South Africa.”

Raheel Qamar, MDS Business Development Manager concludes,” We want to extend a warm welcome to the team at ELB Equipment, who are known for providing excellent service and after-sales support to their customers. I am really looking forward to working closely with the team to build and develop MDS across South Africa.”
