Sennebogen Reliability Counts Big in Big Sky Country

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Pacific Steel & Recycling is as big and sprawling a company as the territory it serves. With its home in Great Falls, MT, in the heart of Big Sky Country, Pacific’s diversified operations now reach out all over the northwest from Washington through the Dakotas and as far south as Colorado.

Operating a fleet of machinery over such a vast area presents a particular challenge for Pacific’s Recycling Equipment Manager, Kelly Frantzich. “Many of our yards are located in very sparsely populated areas, a two or three hour drive from the nearest service center. Lots of our locations are operating with one machine in the yard, so productivity and reliability are paramount.”

Pacific has evolved into scrap metal recycling from its origin as a hides and fur depot 90 years ago, through its current stature as a major regional supplier of steel stock material and farm goods. Its network of metals processing yards rely extensively on Frantzich’s Sennebogen fleet to feed their 23 scrap balers and the firm’s auto shredder, located in Mayfield, ID. The shredder has been kept busy with cars recovered from stockpiles all over the region. Processed material is then shipped to steel mills in the Midwest or to Washington ports for export.
