On Monday, February 11-13, General Kinematics attended C&D World Exhibition and Conference, a gathering of C&D recyclers from around the country who attended the event to learn about up and coming trends and technology in the industry.

Debuted in the GK booth was General Kinematics’ new equipment monitoring line BARRIER™: featuring the new APEX™ and VERTEX™ units. BARRIER™ was also the kick-off presentation at the technology forum, presented by the Director of Resource Recovery, Dick Reeves. The presentation reviewed the ups and downs of reactive vs. proactive maintenance and which plan is more cost-effective. Dick then introduced GK’s new VERTEX™ unit which covers both preventive and predictive monitoring for a more intelligent maintenance routine providing accountability and longer-lasting equipment.
