Mequon, Wisconsin – Telsmith, Inc., a leading manufacturer of mineral processing equipment, enjoyed a successful AGG1 2019 in Indianapolis, Indiana from February 12th-14th promoting their core product lineup, launching their Crushing Questions campaign and promoting Hire Heroes USA.

Telsmith showcased their core product line with 3D models, which included T-Series™ Cone Crushers, Hydra-Jaw® Crushers, and Vibro-King TL® Screens. The models gave visitors a hands-on approach to learning about the product line. In addition, an interactive touch screen allowed visitors to engage more deeply with the features and benefits of these products. Telsmith’s team welcomed visitors and discussed how Telsmith goes the extra mile with their concept to completion services.

To showcase the Telsmith promise that “The Extra Mile Isn’t Extra. It’s Included.” they launched the Crushing Questions video campaign where show attendees asked their most challenging crushing and screening questions. Telsmith collected over 40 questions from attendees and will answer these questions and share the videos on the Telsmith website throughout the next few months here:

“We’re thrilled to have so many attendees step in front of the camera to ask great questions whose answers offer real value,” says Jeff Gray, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Telsmith, Inc., “We are excited to add these questions and answers to our website and YouTube channel and provide a great resource for people in our industry.”

In collaboration with Crushing Questions, Telsmith partnered with Hire Heroes USA and will make a donation for every question asked at AGG1. Hire Heroes USA is a non-profit organization that empowers U.S. military members, veterans, and military spouses to succeed in the civilian workforce by assisting in resume development, translating military experience into civilian terminology, interview techniques, and more.

“There are many veterans within our industry and helping such an important organization such as Hire Heroes USA is one way we can support our men and women who served our country and are ready to transition to a civilian job.”

Anyone wishing to contribute to this campaign can make a donation along with Telsmith at!/donation/checkout.

THE STORY BEHIND HIRE HEROES USA – In 2004, U.S. Army SGT Justin Callahan was severely injured in a landmine explosion while on patrol in Afghanistan. He returned to the U.S. as a patient at Walter Reed Army Medical center – a far cry from where he’d been while serving overseas. After seven surgeries, including a below-the-knee amputation, as well as extensive physical therapy, SGT Callahan embarked on a long road to recovery. While still in treatment, SGT Callahan happened to meet then MedAssets CEO John Bardis. The two formed an immediate bond, and when Bardis learned Callahan’s biggest concern was his uncertainty about his future, he offered him a job on the spot. It was through that chance encounter that Bardis discovered the true plight of unemployed veterans. Bardis then created what is now Hire Heroes USA to provide personalized job search assistance for transitioning U.S. military members, veterans and military spouses.
