CHICAGO (Aug. 1, 2:15 p.m. EDT) — Joint venture Gloucester-CMG of Newport, N.H., combines a seasoned line of granulators and one of the industry's newest identities.
Machines from granulator manufacturer CMG of Budrio, Italy, were sold in the domestic market for two decades under the Cumberland Engineering brand.
That changed in January 2002 with the formation of a partnership between CMG and Battenfeld Gloucester Engineering Co. Inc. of Gloucester, Mass., and the establishment of Gloucester-CMG.
“We have the oldest young company in the granulator marketplace with 30 years' experience,” said Robert Barski, Gloucester-CMG North American sales manager.
Among its other products, Gloucester-CMG exhibited a thermoforming granulator with a 14-inch-by-55-inch cutting chamber for about $29,000. An augur discharges material into a blower and virtually eliminates the usual problem of pulling ground content long distances with a blower, Barski said.
