DoppstadtUS holding company Ecoverse Industries LLC, Avon, Ohio, has acquired compost equipment distributor N40 Inc. For more than 10 years, North Carolina-based N40 has been helping commercial compost facilities establish efficient and effective operations, centered around the BACKHUS compost turner and Backers star screens equipment offering. The addition of N40 greatly complements Ecoverse’s established DoppstadtUS brand and allows the company to deliver across-the-board expertise and capability for industrial-scale composting companies.

Shane Donnelly, president and CEO of Ecoverse Industries, says, “N40 is well known for their expertise, and their equipment offering of BACKHUS turners and Backers star screens is preceded by its reputation for quality. Customers of both N40 and DoppstadtUS have high standards of performance and engineering, and all three of these brands consistently meet those standards. We’re very pleased that Ecoverse is now able to offer all this equipment, on a national scope, and pair it with the composting expertise of a company like N40.”

Lyndell Pate, sales manager for N40, will continue to provide consultation and expertise for compost operations, specifically with regard to process and equipment recommendations. Paul Holshouser, service technician for N40, will also continue to help customers keep their equipment running at peak performance.

“Lyndell and Paul are both crucial to the success of N40, and we are delighted to welcome them onto the Ecoverse team,” adds Donnelly. “Our acquisition is focused on maintaining their value, and integrating that with the advantages of DoppstadtUS to deliver a complete, start-to-finish solution for composting operators. We believe this positions us to be the premier industry solution provider, and customers will appreciate the quality and scope of expertise we can now deliver.”

N40 business operations have all been consolidated to the Avon, Ohio headquarters of Ecoverse and DoppstadtUS, and can be reach at a new contact number: 440-937-0233. The North Carolina sales and service office still remains.
