Italian manufacturer Ecostar has chosen Matpro as the sole distributor of its waste processing machinery in the UK and Ireland.

Matpro, which has its headquarters in Cheshire, is a specialist supplier of materials processing and waste recycling machinery with four regional offices in London, Glasgow, Belfast and Dublin. The new deal adds Ecostar to Matpro’s comprehensive sales portfolio, with the company already claiming exclusive distribution rights to products from Haas Recycling, Weima, Steelweld and Nihot.

Ecostar, based in Italy, produces a wide range of machinery for the mechanical separation of waste, including mobile and static screeners and extractor hoods. The company uses its own ‘Dynamic Disk Screening’ technology – which involves waste passing over a series of revolving disks in order to separate material of different sizes and types – along with its patented anti-wrapping technology, allowing for the continuous flow of material over the deck of its screeners without long fibrous waste becoming twisted and trapped. Applications for Ecostar machines include the screening of organic waste, compost, construction and demolition aggregates, tires, timber, plastics and more.

“We are excited to be able to announce the new partnership between Matpro Machinery and Ecostar,” said Matpro’s Director, Ben McQuaid. “The Ecostar brand and its range of equipment is a great addition to our existing offering. The Ecostar range of screeners can satisfy a wide range of sizing requirements, as well as adding value in other areas such as energy consumption and footprint.

“The versatility of the Ecostar machines is what really stood out to us, as many of our customers process various waste streams. This coupled with the eco-friendly and compact nature of the machines will make them very attractive to the market. We are not giving customers another option, we are giving them an alternative.”

Filippo Cappozzo, Sales Director at Ecostar,  commented: “We are proud to announce this collaboration with Matpro, and we strongly believe they are the right partner for us. Ecostar is committed to producing innovative disc screen machines that, thanks to the revolutionary and patented Dynamic Disc Screening technology, ensure professional and economic benefits to customers.

“It’s crucial that local customers can rely on a distributor that can provide experienced technical support and after-sales service in a fast and reliable manner. The experience and professionalism that Matpro has developed over the years, working with important brands, represents the perfect match with our company values.”
