CM Shredders announced at the start of March that it will open a new test lab and R&D demo facility in North America. Located at CM’s long-time headquarters in Sarasota, Florida, the new 4000 square-ft R&D and demo facility will feature an array of both single shaft and dual shaft shredding systems from the company’s versatile product range.

“The new test lab and R&D facility is an exciting new milestone in our long company history of fueling technology and innovation and the latest step in the process of expanding our business activities beyond our traditional tyre shredding and tyre recycling equipment,” said Charles Astafan, General Manager at CM Shredders.
“We will be able to not only develop and provide new products and processes but also help our customers with a proactive approach when facing the challenges of today’s production environments, whether through test shredding, applications, developing turn-key systems, training support or R&D work. We will work closely and proactively with key suppliers and other industry experts to find solutions that help our customers to improve and optimise their current operations.”
“One of the key focuses of the new CM Test Lab & R&D facility will be application support, especially in areas where tough or exotic materials traditionally create challenges for equipment and operators in size reduction applications,” added Martin Berardi, CEO of Bengal Machine, parent company of CM Shredders. “Dedicated application engineers will work with our customers from all industries to solve their very specific issues. It will also give our clients the opportunity to attend hands-on demonstrations to help better understand processes, capabilities and see the quality delivered by CM Shredders systems first hand.”
