Company History


In April of 2009, Cedarapids®, Simplicity®, Canica® and Jaques® were brought together to form a comprehensive crushing and screening product line called Terex® Minerals Processing Systems. All four companies have a long, rich tradition of manufacturing high quality, reliable equipment. Today, as Terex® Minerals Processing Systems, we are proud to carry that tradition forward, offering new, cost-effective equipment our customers know they can depend on.
