A family-owned recycling and plant hire company has bought its first crusher from Finlay Plant Northern.
Sanders Plant and Waste Management Ltd – based in Morpeth, Northumberland – previously hired crushers, but had a Terex Finlay J-1170 out on demonstration in the summer.
Managing Director, Carl Sanders, was so impressed with the machine’s power-house performance that the company purchased the crusher and it never left the site.
He said: “We’d talked about the possibility of buying a crusher for a long time and we finally decided to have one out on demonstration.
“It did a brilliant job and it made sense for us to buy it.
“Since then we’ve processed and sold material far faster and more efficiently than we’ve managed to achieve prior.”
The Terex Finlay J-1170 is processing inert waste brought to the site from demolition sites across Northumberland and Tyne and Wear.
At a rate of 120 tonnes per hour, the Terex Finlay J-1170 is crushing material to 50mm as well as separating the fines.
The compact and aggressive tracked primary crusher, features a hydrostatically driven Terex jaw chamber providing high capacity with large reduction ratios.
Other features include a variable speed VGF and integrated prescreen, boasting excellent throughput – well-suited for quarrying, mining, demolition and recycling applications.
With its compact dimensions, and weighing just 48.8 tonnes, the Terex Finlay J-1170 is cheaper to transport making it the ideal machine to join Sanders Plant and Waste Management’s growing hire fleet.
Carl Sanders founded the company in 1979, supplying a wide range of plant and haulage to the construction industry, and in 2007 the business expanded to offer waste management services.
Now one of the leading plant and waste management companies in the region, the company offers a full range of 100 per cent recycled products, including building sand, sharp sand, screened top soil and Type 1 as well as decorative stone and trench fill.
Other services include ready mix concrete, plant hire and haulage.
Carl Sanders added: “This is the first time we’ve dealt with Finlay Plant Northern and we’ve been really happy with them.
“Working together we’ve managed to find a machine that best suits the company.”
Finlay Plant Northern is part of the Finlay Group which comprises of 11 stand-alone companies offering the most modern and diverse range of material processing equipment available in the marketplace.
Charlie Nairn, managing director of Finlay Plant Northern and who helped specify the plant, said: “The J-1170 is proving to be the ideal machine for Sanders Plant and Waste Management.
“They also have the peace of mind that the Finlay Group’s service and back-up teams are on hand.”
