OBC Baling named exclusive distributor of McIntyre shears in North America

OBC Baling Equipment and JMC Manufacturing are pleased to announce an exclusive distribution arrangement in the North American market for the McIntyre alligator shears product line. A leading distributor of quality baling and material processing equipment to the recycling industry, OBC is well positioned to aggressively integrate McIntyre into their diversified offering.

Customers, especially scrap metal processors, will benefit from OBC as a single-source provider of complete equipment solutions backed by their exclusive No Worries™ guarantee. With the addition of McIntyre alligator shears, OBC can ensure that every operation is prescribed the right equipment for their needs, from processing to baling to distribution.  

“We are very excited about our expanded relationship with JMC,” shared Mike McChrystal, president and owner of OBC. “We are quite familiar with the quality and performance of McIntyre shears, and appreciate the added value this opportunity brings to the OBC brand. Our team looks forward to serving the North American market on behalf of JMC.”  

Phillip Pownall, managing director of JMC Recycling Systems, concurred. “The opportunity to have our McIntyre brand shears and spare parts exclusively represented in North America by OBC is a significant advantage for us. Knowing our customers will be well cared for allows us to focus on launching a variety of new shears into the market as we continually update our product range."  

Based in Nottingham, England, JMC is the only manufacturer of genuine McIntyre alligator shears. Originally designed to withstand the rigors of scrapyard use, McIntyre shears are suitable for any industrial application, and perform particularly well in metal recycling operations. Available with blade lengths from 6 – 36 inches, and powered by either electric or diesel engines, all McIntyre shears can be modified or custom built to suit any specific need. A solenoid hydraulic option is also available.
