A Scottish concrete manufacturer is recycling 100% of waste materials on site, eliminating the need to send anything to landfill, and generating a new revenue stream, thanks to a MB Crushing Bucket from Worsley Plant.
Inverurie Precast is a family company operating for over 25 years, based north of Aberdeen. They manufacture precast concrete. Amongst other things this is used for window sills, door steps and bridge units, and their market sectors include Construction, Farming, Horticultural and Oil Industries.
Previously the company had tipped any waste concrete into their storage yard and then sent it out to landfill – transported in and out in their own truck. Now, they’ve chosen to invest in a MB L200 Crushing Bucket to work on their Manatu Telehandler.
This allows them to now take in Customer rubble, crush all lumps and use for hardcore. They either use it for their own projects or sell it on to other customers. This is saving transport, money and the environment, as well as giving them an extra revenue stream.
Jason Adie, Director of Inverurie Precast had been to BAUMA 4 years ago and seen MB’s crushing buckets in action. Therefore he was aware of how they worked and the potential benefits gained from them.
More recently Jason watched a video from Worsley Plant on the internet and approached David Marshall, Scottish Area Sales Manager for a trial. The bucket did exactly what he wanted so they decided to buy it.
Jason concludes: “The MB L200 is a great bucket. It does exactly what we need it to do. We’ve never had any issues with it, it’s very heavy duty and I’ve got no complaints! It’s helped us add a new revenue stream to our business and we’re pleased that we no longer send anything to landfill.”
