Eco Green Equipment, a designer and manufacturer of tire recycling systems from Salt Lake City, has announced the addition of two new sales representatives to serve Canada and South Africa.

Keld Andersen, previously with Performance Management Pro, based in Ontario, has joined the Eco Green Equipment Team as sales representative for Canada, while Ziboneni Godongwana, formally of East Rand Water Care Co. (PTY) Ltd. (ERWAT) and Kusaga Taka Consulting (PTY) Ltd., has joined the team as sales representative for South Africa.

Andersen has a diverse background in textiles and petrochemicals and has more than eight years in the tire recycling industry, Eco Green says. He was a recipient of an Environmental Excellence award from former U.S. Vice President Al Gore.

Andersen holds a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, and an SME in predictive maintenance.
“After years in the tire recycling industry, I experienced some common weaknesses in operations and equipment,” Andersen says. “After learning of Eco Green Equipment, discussions with partner Brad Swenson and visiting their facility in Salt Lake City, I concluded that they had developed some very innovative ways to address all the problems I had experienced. In essence, I was excited to join them and start promoting these key solutions they offer to the tire recycling industry in Canada.”

Godongwana holds bachelor’s degrees in chemistry and biochemistry and a doctorate degree in chemistry. His background includes heading a university research initiative to promote and develop tire recycling in South Africa.

“I am excited to be part of a team that offers a true turnkey recycling solution from shreds to powder,” Godongwana says. “Eco Green Equipment manages the complete process of design to installation. … Their assistance will provide a number of jobs in South Africa as a result. I am excited to be part of the team.”
