For almost four decades, Gerry Kenny has established his name, plus that associated with his company, Sand Science Inc. , as a source among contractors and company owners looking to get quality screening, conveying, crushing plus recycling equipment.

From the dealership’s location in Beaufort, S. C., along the Interstate 95 corridor, Sand Science has grown from being a local and regional distributor of material handling equipment to one that now serves customers across the particular United States.

During its entire history, beginning in 1985, Sand Technology has offered a full line of new, used and rental gear to solve a range of applications for its clients.

The makers associated with those product lines, including Roto-Screen, Revolver plus Barford, among others, have found Gerry, together with his two adult sons, Eoin and Adam, vice presidents of marketing/sales, to be experts at solving their material processing problems.

The Roto-Screen company, for one, has been so impressed with Fine sand Science’s efforts on the behalf that it has recently granted the South Carolina distributor with the maker’s entire U. S. sales territory, according to Gerry Kenny.

“We have been the top sellers of Roto-Screen machines with regard to many years, and after the change inside ownership at the company during the past year, its new management decided that we would be their brand new master supplier, ” he said.

Sand Science Solves Problems regarding Customers

In tandem with its burgeoning national reputation, Gerry Kenny also noted that Sand Science has experienced a growth spurt over the past 10 years coinciding with his sons joining the particular business.

“I think that is one of the keys to our success and it has furthermore been a tremendous blessing to me personally, and a great resource for Sand Technology customers to keep that continuity, ” this individual said. “Even during the pandemic, we were able to expand and add new personnel. ”

Kenny added that another reason Fine sand Science was able to weather both the coronavirus and the economic recession so well was because of the company’s ability to solve material-handling problems because of its customers — no matter their location.

“For example, in 2021 we sent a specific conveyor system to Hawaii in order to solve a problem, along with one of our technicians to install it for the particular customer, inch Kenny said. “Another application that comes to mind is because we do an increasing amount of business using the growing biomass industry, meaning wood chips, mulch plus wood pellets. There was a large fire last year in a port warehousing facility in southern Georgia where a lot of wood pellets burned. Using our Roto-Screen equipment, the residual sawdust was turned into an useful product after our customer screened all the pieces of metal and trash out of it. ”

Sand Science also aided among his local Beaufort customers. In that will case, the owner has a permitted incinerator to burn debris, but in the process discovered he was finding lots associated with soil mixed in with the particular debris while he was creating an useful ash byproduct from the incinerator. Kenny’s company has been called in to set up a Roto-Screen for the client whereby he or she could screen the soil mix plus combine this with their ash in order to create a good amended soil product.

“Another local consumer, a garden center within Mt. Pleasant, S. C., recently bought one of our compact Revolver RT508 trommel screens, inches Kenny stated. “They are repeat clients of ours. It allows them to accept rough soil in an opportunistic way, process it, and blend any other material they wish with it to supplement their choice of landscape products. ”

To be ready at a moment’s notice to send trommel screens to wherever they are usually needed, Fine sand Science keeps a big supply of them in the yard, located off I-95’s Exit 33, in South Carolina’s Low Country, just north of Savannah, Ga.

“We always have a lot of machines in stock, including a long line of drum meshes, probably totaling 200 feet long, as well as an additional 200-foot-line associated with spare drums, ” Kenny said. “We get calls from almost all over the place, but , having mentioned that, one of the wonderful things about a Roto-Screen is that it uses parts that are freely available. They are U. H. standard parts, and we are quite happy to tell a customer from Wisconsin or Missouri or even Louisiana that will, ‘Hey, the particular machine bearing you need is this size, and you can go to your nearby industrial components store in order to get one. ‘ We are not out to soak our own customers intended for parts, yet we have them inside stock, plus we are usually happy to ship all of them out when necessary. inch

Jaw Crushers Available at Sand Science

In addition in order to selling trommel screeners through Roto-Screens and Revolver, plus Kafka feeders and various specialty unloaders and trans loader machines, Sand Science is in the business of supplying the line associated with Barford-made track jaw crushers/vibrating screeners plus stackers to customers. The main Barford model in Kenny’s inventory is the particular powerful 750J, a legal-load track crusher that he said is ideal for contractors and is known for doing an excellent job of recycling concrete.

“We possess been within the crushing equipment business just about as long as we have been inside operation. But we try to keep this simple along with affordable, mid-sized jaw crushers because they are easier and safer for companies — the main customers base — to use. Specialist machines like impact crushers, shredders and cone crushers are available plus dealt with on an ‘as needed’ basis. ”

Focus On Material Handlers, Processors Leads to Success

For his part, Eoin Kenny said he sees Fine sand Science’s key to achievement as becoming its specialization in materials handling and processing products.

“Screening, crushing and conveying equipment is our focus, inches he said. “We don’t sell excavators or dozers. Or goal is to rent or sell you the correct equipment to get processing or handling your material plus to give you the most affordable solution. ”

Following their graduation from college, both Eoin and Adam came aboard Sand Science with a fresh perspective, in the procedure building upon their father’s success with the organization.

“Adam and I have brought energy in order to Sand Technology, with new technology and development of Sand Science’s Internet presence for our own core Southeastern marketplace, along with more of a focus on expanding our footprint throughout North America, inch Eoin stated.

“I think the biggest thing all of us have seen during the time in Sand Technology is our national growth, ” this individual added. “I have flown across the country to install our systems for new customers inside Maryland, Oklahoma, Oregon, Louisiana as well as the Northeastern states. inches

With three talented people handling product sales now instead of 1, Eoin Kenny said they have been able to increase the company from their dad’s initial impact 37 many years ago.

“Also, the market has changed considerably because pertaining to so long it was done only through local dealers, ” he or she said. “Now, because associated with the Internet, customers can reach us from further afield, and we can make them feel confident we are not just an online sales business, but a full-fledged dealership that will back up clients from coast to coastline.

“If a person buy something from us, someone from Sand Science will come in order to show you how to use that device and teach you everything you need to know about it. Following that, we will remain as a resource meant for you upon both that piece of equipment and others in the particular future. We have been not going to simply sell you a machine and leave a person to it. Sand Science does business in order to create long-term relationships and that is why we’ve been successful from selling tools all around the country. ”
