McCloskey Announces New Division for Washing Systems


McCloskey International announced the launch of McCloskey Washing Systems (MWS), a new business division focused on washing and classifying across multiple applications. The new unit will design and manufacture a full range of mobile, modular and static material and mineral washing equipment.

While McCloskey International has been producing equipment for the quarrying, recycling, mining and industrial sand sectors for more than 30 years, this new division has been created to provide 100 percent focus on the development of class-leading innovative and efficient equipment for washing and classifying material and mineral products.

Speaking ahead of the launch, McCloskey International’s President and CEO Paschal McCloskey said, “Our customers are always looking for more modern, flexible and cost-effective solutions. Our customer-driven approach to product development has led us to invest significantly in the establishment of this new division, with the aim to be the design and manufacture of high quality washing equipment that is easy to install, maintain and operate.”

The products produced by the new division will deliver significant advantages to customers, including lower cost of ownership, lower cost of production, and making more projects viable for their business.

“Global requirements are becoming more stringent, and McCloskey International is in the perfect position to provide innovative equipment to assist customers in meeting these demands,” said Sean Loughran, director, MWS. “The entrepreneurial spirit that McCloskey was founded on is very much alive; the business continues to be driven by passion to design and build the best equipment. This same ethos exists within MWS. Our team of highly skilled and experienced Washing Design Engineers have spent the past 12 months developing an impressive range of washing equipment that, I am delighted to announce, is ready to be launched onto the world stage.”

With a host of international tradeshows and customer open days planned, the remainder of 2016 and all of 2017 is going to be a busy time for MWS. Introduction of the division and product line within the global dealer network has begun, and will continue leading up to the formal launch of the division at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2017, March 7-11, in Las Vegas. The first products will be unveiled and on display in a 20,000-plus-sq.-ft. exhibit in the Silver Lot, at S5115 and S5014.
