CM’s tire shredder shaft

Columbus McKinnon (CM), a manufacturer of tire recycling systems and shredding processing equipment based in Florida, informs about changes to its sales team.

As the current sales manager Richard Colyar is retiring in the end of 2017, Tom Schroeder joined CM on May 3 to become a director of sales and marketing. Mr. Colyar has been working at Columbus McKinnon for over 34 years holding different positions. For the last 22 years, he devoted himself to the role of sales manager. In the past, he made his career path at the company through positions of the first customer service manager and technician. After his retirement, Richard is going to support the company on the part-time basis.

According to the General Manager Charlie Astafan, Richard Colyar immensely contributed to CM’s development and the staff will miss his everyday involvement in the company life. The staff and the management are extremely pleased that Richard will continue working with CM and will keep supporting numerous customers who depend on Colyar’s expertise.

Before joining Columbus McKinnon, Tom Schroeder was in charge of North American operations in a large German Company. He possesses more than 30 years of experience with material handling, separation, cleaning, sorting and size reduction. According to Charlie Astafan, CM’s team is glad that its customers will be benefiting from Schroeder’s process knowledge, passion and vast expertise. Currently, the main focal point of Schroeder will be customer loyalty, sales and expanding markets, especially for the new line of hybrid shredders.
