Powerscreen has achieved its five-decade legacy through industry leadership, customer input, continuous innovation, and relationships built on trust. The company was founded in 1966 under the name of Ulster Plant in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland where the research, development, and manufacturing of products continues today. The Powerscreen founders pioneered the concept of mobile screening: taking the machines to the quarry face rather than the expensive process of moving the material to the machine. In 1969, Powerscreen exported their first machine to Sweden (which cost £2.5k) and by the 1970s the Powerscreen name was born. In 2009, Terex® Pegson and Powerscreen® products and services were united under the Powerscreen name.
Powerscreen started out from mobile machines in a sand pit to industry leading machine designs serving quarry, mining, construction and demolition, and recycling industries. Powerscreen not only introduced the mobile machine concept but also set new standards for many products and technologies that have become widely adopted in the industry, including the Chieftain and Warrior ranges of mobile screens.
In the last 50 years, Powerscreen has gone above and beyond in its product development efforts, focusing on what customers need to be successful in their industries and applications. Powerscreen innovations are changing the market and setting the industry standard for quality, reliability, and safety in crushing and screening equipment. This relentless innovation can still be seen today in the newest advancements of Powerscreen’s Hybrid Technology line that uses alternative energy to power machines.
Unrivalled Dealer Network
Key to the success of the Powerscreen brand is the global distribution network of more than 120 distributors providing local service and support to end users. Growth of Powerscreen’s distribution network is due in large part to internally developing ambitious employees who advanced within the company and opened their own dealerships around the world. Today, Powerscreen operates in over 80 countries, employs more than 600 people, and offers more than 30 machines in their product range.
