No successful company can rest on past success, which is why TerraSource continues to invest heavily on the types of innovative and constantly evolving sizing, processing and handling solutions required by our customers to support their operations as they change and grow. Our ability to continually meet future challenges is driven by the cumulative knowledge, expertise and engineering capabilities we are privileged to have in-house due to the decades of customer projects and thousands of machines we’ve installed around the world, dozens of which are still in operation.
We know how to innovate, because we’ve been doing it for over a hundred years. We have extensive process and application knowledge that helps us understand the source of customer challenges and the experienced technical staff to design, implement and service the proper solutions.
To understand how we’re positioned to continue providing value to industrial customers in the years to come, it’s good to look at how we’ve put ourselves in this position, how we’ve remained a viable, adaptable and consistently successful company in a marketplace defined by consistent change and uncertainty.
Jeffrey Rader is a global leader in material handling and size reduction equipment, with a significant presence in the pulp and paper industry. Jeffrey Equipment traces its roots to the Lechner Mining Machine Company, which was established in 1876 and produced the first power-driven coal cutter used in America. In 1882, Lechner Mining Machine Company changed its name to Jeffrey Mining Machinery. The Company soon became an international leader in underground mechanical miners, locomotives, ram cars, and power shovels, before diversifying into crushers and vibrating feeders as well.
In 1951, Rader Company developed one of the first pneumatic conveying systems for woody materials, revolutionizing bulk handling in the global pulp and paper industry. Over the years, Rader grew its product range to include screening and processing equipment, storage and reclaim systems, and general bulk material handling systems.
Jeffrey Equipment and Rader Companies combined forces in 2008 to provide complete material handling and processing solutions. Together, they brought a combined 150 years of technical experience in the design, engineering, application and manufacturing of industrial equipment and systems.
Jeffrey Rader equipment and systems are installed across the globe, providing durable performance in industries such as pulp and paper, aggregate, biomass power, petrochemical, forest products, mining and many others.
Gundlach Crushers was initially founded as the T.J. Gundlach Machine Company, a maintenance repair shop set up to service mining operations, foundries, and grain mills. However, since being asked to design a crusher for the St. Louis market in 1946, Gundlach has been known as an innovation leader in size reduction solutions, having helped redefine and expand the potential of crushing equipment. Gundlach designed its first single-stage, two-roll crusher in 1948, transforming the way coal mines could size product to meet market demands. This machine was the first crusher that could economically break 50 mm sized chunks of coal into 19 mm pieces in a single pass. Another breakthrough Gundlach design – the first two-stage, four-roll crusher – was a game changer, marking the first time that a single crusher could take run-of-mine coal and crush it to 19 mm size. Mining operations, coal-fired power stations, mineral processing plants and manufacturing facilities throughout the world still rely on Gundlach roll crushers and cage mills to handle their business-critical size reduction and processing requirements.
Pennsylvania Crusher was incorporated in 1905 to manufacture and market the inventions of its founder, George Wills Borton. His principal asset was his patent for the Borton Adjustable Cage Hammermill, an incredibly durable and high-performance machine which continues to inform moder hammermill designs.
Even after 100 years, Pennsylvania Crusher continues to be is a pioneering brand for the most advanced designs and highest quality manufacturd crushing machinery and has been solving the crushing challenges of its customers with the most advanced technology, the highest quality machinery and unparalleled service for 100 years. Today, Pennsylvania Crusher machines crush 75% of all the coal produced in the United States, and are also used for cement, food, power generation, mining, and chemical and food processing applications in 79 countries around the world.
Because of these three robust equipment brands, TerraSource is truly a full-service solution for customers across a variety of industries. From over 100 years of design, technical, and industry knowledge to a company culture driving innovation to achieve higher performance and efficiency, we are proud to be the sole manufacturer of these long-standing brands that continue to withstand the test of time.
