Matt Osborne was recently appointed Director of Customer Relations at Vecoplan, LLC.
In his new position, Osborne is charged with reengaging older customers in dialogue to determine, develop and implement best practices for all interactions between Vecoplan staff and the people they serve.
His initial focus will be the expansion of Vecoplan’s factory certified parts program, through the evolution of their “constant improvements in service initiative”. The plan depends on absolute quality of information communicated, product accuracy, cost competiveness, and timely delivery. Acting as a liaison, Osborne will facilitate communication and cooperation between Vecoplan customers and Vecoplan’s parts and service team. He will begin by reaching out to Vecoplan customers that have not been heard from in a while.
Osborne initiated the highly successful Vecoplan-Roadshow in his former role as a Regional Sales Manager in Vecoplan’s Mobile Division. During this time he demonstrated a natural talent for listening to end users of Vecoplan machinery, gleaning insights and implementing programs to increase customer satisfaction.
Prior to joining Vecoplan, Osborne was City Manager at DR Horton, America’s largest new homebuilder, in Greensboro NC. Where he managed day-to-day operations, coordinating the activities of sales, construction, customer service, acquisitions, and administration.

A “Posse of Cowboys” from Vecoplan Midwest, located in New Albany IN, won the Team Penning competition this past weekend at the Kentucky State Fair.
The event that gives a team of three riders on horseback from 60 to 90 seconds to separate three specifically identified cattle from a herd, and put them into a 16′ x 24′ pen through a 10′ opening, at the opposite end of the arena.
The sport features 30 head of cattle, typically yearling beef cattle (mature cows or bulls are not allowed), with numbers affixed to their back, three each wearing a number from 0 through 9. Timing starts once the line judge has dropped his flag as the lead rider’s horse crosses the foul line. At that time, the announcer identifies the cattle to be separated by calling out a randomly drawn number. The riders must cut out the three head bearing the number called by the announcer, herd them to the opposite end of the arena, pen them and call for time.
This particular competition featured 3 rounds. The number of cattle penned in each round is totaled along with the amount of time it takes in each round. The team that pens the most cattle, (maximum 3 head per round) in the least amount of time advances.
Bill Miller – COO Vecoplan Midwest, Natalie Miller – Parts Manger Vecoplan Midwest & Natalie’s cousin – Jesse Murrell took 1st place by penning a total of 9 head in 123 seconds. Natalie, Jesse & Garrell Murrell placed 2nd with 9 head penned in 124 seconds.Read More
VECOPLAN LLC announced that it has executed a fixed-price contract with Fulcrum BioEnergy,
Inc. to design, engineer, install and commission a state-of-the-art municipal solid waste (MSW)
feedstock processing system for Fulcrum’s Sierra BioFuels Plant. Fulcrum has developed a reliable
and efficient process for converting MSW, or household garbage that would otherwise be landfilled,
into low-cost, low-carbon renewable transportation fuels. The contract was awarded to VECOPLAN
following an extensive vetting process.
“After a comprehensive research and review process, we identified VECOPLAN as the right
company to engineer and build our feedstock processing system. VECOPLAN’s ability to stand
behind their product with a fixed-price contract that guarantees the performance of the system,
coupled with their knowledge, experience, and commitment, made VECOPLAN the right partner for
us,” said Rick Barraza, Fulcrum’s Vice President of Administration.
Len Beusse, VECOPLAN’s Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer, states “We could not
be more pleased with, and appreciative of the trust Fulcrum has placed in VECOPLAN. We are
excited to be involved in such a landmark project. Fulcrum truly seems to be in the vanguard of this
Fulcrum is the leading developer and owner of projects that convert municipal solid waste into
syncrude and renewable transportation fuels including jet fuel and diesel. The Company has
successfully proven and demonstrated this process for converting MSW to fuels utilizing its
proprietary, innovative, clean and efficient thermochemical process. Fulcrum has secured long-term,
MSW feedstock agreements with its waste services partners and has entered into long-term fuel and
product off take agreements with Cathay Pacific Airways and United Airlines.
Fulcrum’s process will have a tremendous impact globally. Abundant supplies of MSW located near
large population centers, are located near areas of high fuel demand, which enables Fulcrum to
quickly, efficiently and economically turn waste into low-carbon, drop-in jet and diesel fuels.
Fulcrum has secured sufficient MSW feedstock to support its large growth program to construct and
operate plants across North America. The Sierra BioFuels Plant, Fulcrum’s first commercial scale
plant, is located approximately 20 miles east of Reno, Nevada and is expected to enter operations
during the second half of 2017. In addition to Sierra, Fulcrum is developing seven more projects that
are expected to have the cumulative capacity to produce more than 300 million gallons per year of
renewable transportation fuels at locations across North America.
Fulcrum’s feedstock processing system, whose cost and performance is being guaranteed by
VECOPLAN, will receive MSW via transfer trailers unloaded onto the facility’s tipping floor. All
inorganic waste will be extracted from the MSW stream and the remaining organic feedstock
material will be prepared and delivered to the Sierra BioFuels Plant for conversion into
VECOPLAN’S system will deploy technologies, machinery and equipment including conveyors,
pre-shredders, waste screens, wind sifters, over belt magnets, eddy current and non-ferrous
separators, picking stations, NIR three-way optical sorters, dust collection systems, balers and
