BlueMAC Manufacturing has branched out by appointing SKALA Australasia Pty Ltd as the exclusive distributor of the firm’s products in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

SKALA is an equipment supplier and solutions provider for the recycling, mining, bulk materials and industrial processing sectors. BlueMAC already has two plants in build for SKALA customers and said that when these are commissioned later this year, they will be two of Australia’s largest C&D processing facilities.

BlueMAC was launched in 2014 when Blue Group and Dmac Engineering combined their resources to create bespoke modular materials recycling facilities (MRFs).

Pat McGeary, Blue Group chairman, said, “The appointment of SKALA is a major step in BlueMAC entering the world stage. SKALA… is a highly respected and successful company in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands and this partnership between BlueMAC and SKALA will bring additional knowledge and experience to the recycling industry.”

SKALA’s Simon Toal added, “BlueMAC was ideal for several reasons. The company can design, engineer and supply complete systems of the capacity our market requires and, like us, is a young, proactive and growing business. Being part of the UK’s Blue Group means they have hit the ground running with many successful installations already in the market; furthermore, Blue’s investment in people, facilities and resources is impressive.

“BlueMAC already has many systems which integrate with other SKALA brands and this enables us to really expand on the existing systems we have in Australia.”
