Rockster dealer Sanymaq, based in Colombia, is using the Austrian company's technology to reach new markets

Austrian company Rockster’s new Colombian dealer Sanymaq is using the R700S impact crusher to push into new markets as a result of changing legislation in the South American country.

“Our main activity will be relying on Austrian technology to venture into areas where no other Colombian company can compete”, said Jose Saturnino Barajas, the owner of Sanymaq.

“There has been a new recycling law just signed in congress which requires all companies in Colombia to reuse and recycle skip and demolition waste,” he added.

One of the newer projects Sanymaq is working on is the emerging metallurgic coke recycling market. There are many smelters and foundries that have never recycled before, and the new law is requiring them to recycle coke waste.

By using at first a two-deck screen to separate the coke material combined with the Rockster machine as an oversize reducer, Sanymaq is able to get two grades of clean material which is required.

“Two grades of clean cubic material is what we were looking for, so we can sell the aggregate for road base material,” said Jose.
