Rashid Shakir, Dir. of Engineering, American Wood Fibers

“On subject of your Company and products and how they have been a part of my career in the Recycling Industry, I would like to say that for over 30 years, the use of General Kinematics equipment has only been overshadowed by one thing… the fine people that work for your organization. Since my experience spans several generations of the GK family, and many different product lines and industry applications, I feel the common traits apply to all….superior design and application of quality products by sincerely helpful people I am proud to call friends.General Kinematics should be proud of the positive effect they have had on the Industry and the companies that have benefited from the use of their products.”

 – Dennis Ciccotelli, Steinert US

“I wanted to speak about the GK shakers that we have in use. We have used GK shaker units at our Newport, KY plant for as long as 15 years with little or no problems, with very little maintenance and upkeep. These shakers do so well that most of our shredding plants are now using them, simply because they work every day and perform well in every area we use them in. So, if you ask me how the GK products are, then I have to say they really work for us. If we ever would upgrade or change any of these shakers, I would want to stay with General Kinematics, because of the low maintenance cost and the service we get when we need it.”

– Arvil Pennington, Plant Operations Manager, River Metals Recycling, Newport, KY


“After thirteen years I can still call GK, talk to them about new problems or new ways to do things with old equipment, and it’s just like speaking with a good business partner. They understand and they spring into action. Quality workmanship, strong service and a customer focused relationship that’s hard to put a value on. You can’t go wrong.”

– Alan Harleston, Facility Manager, Covanta Union Inc.

“Thank you for your help in getting our files up to date. As always, GK is there when we need help.”

– David E. Boseley, Sr. Project Engineer, East Jordan Iron Works

“General Kinematics has continued to prove their superiority in vibratory conveying systems. GK continues to strive for the highest quality, service, cost and lead time… there is no better option than a GK vibratory conveyor.”

– G. Degenhart – Asst. Manager Engineering, Aisin Automotive Casting, Tennessee

“With our new GK unit we have been able to focus our maintenance attention on other pieces of equipment. Prior to installing the GK unit, we were working daily on our under shredder vibrator, now we just turn it on and it works every-time. We have processed more than 1 million tons with our shredder and have yet to do any required work on our GK under shredder oscillator. We really like the reliability of this unit and the low maintenance requirements.”

– Rusty Manning, Riverside Engineering, Inc.

“The GK FINGER-SCREEN™ does a great job of presenting material to the sorting screens so that you can readily pick what you are trying to sort.”

– Kim Williams, Marpan Recyclingfive stars icon
