SA's first KPI Superstacker telescoping conveyor

The first ever KPI "SuperStacker" road-portable telescoping conveyor has been sold in South Africa, by Johannesburg-based Osborn.

Marketing director Martin Botha elaborates: "Through our United States-based sister company KPI (also part of the Astec Industries Group), Osborn is now also offering the SuperStacker range of road-portable telescoping conveyors, and has, to date, sold one of the largest units in the range - a KPI Series 33 36" x 150' (914mm x 46m)  - to South African mining group Exxaro. This SuperStacker will be employed at Exxaro's Leeuwpan mine.
