Major Wire Names Kirby-Smith Machinery New Dealer


Montreal-based Major Wire Industries Limited named Kirby-Smith Machinery Inc. as its new authorized dealer for aggregate, asphalt and recycle operations in Eastern Kansas, Oklahoma and Northern Texas. The dealership offers all of Major Wire’s screen media solutions, including the advanced technology Flex-Mat 3 Self-Cleaning Screen Media in tensioned and modular versions and OptimumWire Woven Wire.

“Kirby-Smith makes customer service a top priority,” said Gary Pederson, Major Wire vice president of sales. “In addition to their full staff of service personnel working with customers on-site, they also offer seminars throughout the year to help their customers stay on top of industry changes and advancements. Their dedication to providing customers with superior service and expertise fits perfectly with the value-added programs offered by Major Wire, including on-site Screening Plant Audits, Screen Maintenance Seminars and our Flex-Mat 3 Results Guaranteed Program.”

Major Wire’s advanced Flex-Mat 3 High-Performance, Self-Cleaning Screen Media is available in a tensioned version as an alternative to traditional woven wire and a modular version designed to replace polyurethane and rubber modular screen panels. The company’s OptimumWire Woven Wire has a unique chemical makeup that provides up to 40 percent longer wear life when compared to traditional woven wire of the same diameter, according to the company.

“We add value to our customers by going the extra mile,” said David Baker, vice president of parts and service at Kirby-Smith. “One of our salesman has more than 30 years of experience selling screen media and introduced us to the product line. It didn’t take long for us to realize that Major Wire was a great fit for our company and customers. Major Wire screen media increases production and our customers like that.”
