Genesis line added at Komatsu stores

Hydraulic scrap and demolition attachments to be carried at company-owned stores in the northeastern U.S.

November 2, 2022

Scrap recycling and demolition attachments made by Genesis Attachments are now being carried in Komatsu company-owned stores in the northeastern United States.

Material handling equipment maker Komatsu says Superior, Wisconsin-based Genesis “has earned an excellent reputation as a provider of high-quality attachments,” and the product line can help meet requests from customers in scrap and demolition who “demand products that can excel in and withstand those tough applications.”

“We have partnered with Genesis to offer their products to our customers because they are a global leader in shear, concrete processor and grapple innovation,” says Mike Kubas, vice president with the Komatsu Company Stores business unit of Chicago-based Komatsu America Corp.

“Their excellent postsale customer support and technical service is well-aligned with our strategy and very complementary to the products we currently sell to our customer base,” Kubas says of Genesis employees.

Komatsu describes Genesis demolition attachments as being designed with features including multiple jaws with quick change-outs, reversible blades and teeth, and streamlined internal components that require low maintenance. “Genesis demolition attachments easily process concrete, rebar and steel in high-reach, general and bridge demolition, concrete recycling, and C & D material recycling applications,” the company adds.

In the scrap recycling sector, Komatsu says Genesis mobile shears and grapples are designed to increase scrap processing speed, efficiency and handling. The 22 models of GXT shears “fit a wide range of excavators to meet application needs, while Genesis scrap grapples and handling grapples provide large capacities to quickly move material,” Komatsu says.

“We are excited to bring our experience and industry leading products and support to these Komatsu customers,” says Justin Palvere, director of North American sales with Genesis. “Together, we can better serve the demolition and scrap industries.”

Genesis Attachments is a business unit of Ohio-based NPK Construction Equipment Inc. and Japan-based Nippon Pneumatic Mfg. Co. Ltd. K. Genesis describes itself as a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-quality shears, grapples, concrete processors and specialty attachments for the scrap processing, demolition, material handling and offshore decommissioning industries.

Komatsu, with worldwide headquarters in Japan, provides equipment, and technology and services for the construction, mining, forklift, industrial and forestry markets. Its Company Stores business unit has 19 branches in eight states in the U.S., with 11 of those locations in the northeastern states of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
