CMS Cepcor Americas, a provider of high-quality aftermarket parts for the crushing and mining industries,is celebrating a significant achievement in growth and expansion.
Back in 2019 the CMS Cepcor Group saw an opportunity to expand its operations into the North American market and created CMS Cepcor Americas operating out of Peoria, Ill. To ensure the company had the right knowledge and experience to be of immediate value, a core team of highly experienced professionals were brought in from day one, meaning that right from the get go the new company had all the key benefits and market experience of a long established business. Since its inception in August 2019, the company has achieved substantial growth in just four years to become the leading independent supplier of premium quality aftermarket parts.
In 2021 CCA established its 34,000 sq. ft. headquarters in Peoria, Ill, a key milestone in creating a solid base for future expansion. To reach outwards from there, exclusive dealership partnerships have been critical and have so far allowed for 14 strategically placed warehousing locations across the United States and Canada. This means the benefits of the extensive product range are complimented by the immediate availability of much of the inventory.
Building on the success of CMS Cepcor Americas, the CMS Cepcor Group acquired the crusher wear liner business of Columbia Steel Casting Co. to provide custom solutions for mining and aggregate users. The reception of the industry to this move has been highly positive and as a result the company has officially booked orders for more than 1,000 tons of cast wear parts in the first six months of trading.
As it has been for CCA, Columbia’s success is a result of knowledge and experience, this time provided by the ex-Columbia Steel staff that were brought over with the acquisition. Combined with the proven commercial philosophy of CMS Cepcor Group it is a recipe for success.
Chris Sydenham, CEO of the CMS Cepcor Groups U.S. operations expressed his satisfaction with the latest results, stating, “This is a testament to our focus on delivering exceptional service to our customers, alongside the hard work and dedication of the team. As we look ahead, the team is committed to pushing new boundaries in the years to come to further solidify our position as the industry leader in the aftermarket space. Furthering this success will require investment, which has been outlined in the long-term business plan that the team is excited to implement over the coming months and years.”
