Leading aggregate recycling specialist Cappagh Group has reinforced its long-standing relationship with Finlay Plant South East, with the delivery of new machinery to its fleet.
Cappagh, which has its Head Office in Wimbledon and operational/recycling centres across the South East, has taken delivery of a new Terex Finlay 883, which is boosting productivity on its Stanwell site.
The new machine has been involved in the contractor’s work at Heathrow Airport and is making reject sand, which is used for pipe bedding and filling.
It joins Cappagh’s existing fleet of Terex Finlay machinery – supplied by Finlay Plant South East – which is being used for washing and recycling processes.
Cappagh is one of the industry’s major success stories. The family-owned firm was started in the 1960s by Tom Ferncombe and today has more than 300 directly employed staff, providing a depth of knowledge and experience that has culminated in an extensive track record in utility operations, civil engineering schemes, land remediation projects and aggregate recycling.
The company has a reputation for a forward-thinking approach, focused on innovation and continued investment, which has provided a platform for significant growth in the diversity of operations and portfolio of clients across the South East.
Of particular note is Cappagh’s significant investment in the delivery of its own Aggregate Recycling Centres, strategically sited across the South East, to service the growing sphere of operations.
Designed to recycle construction waste and maximise the production of recycled aggregates for re-use within the company’s own construction projects, these centres are committed to providing an environmentally friendly, cost-effective and uniquely integrated service.
In tandem with its growth, Cappagh has relied on Finlay Plant South East – part of the Finlay Group of companies – for a range of Terex Finlay and TESAB equipment to continue its expansion programme.
Michael Ferncombe, Managing Director of Cappagh Group, said: "Flexibility enables us to meet the challenges of the evolving utilities and construction market and the introduction of high performance plant and machinery over the years has been key to us meeting those demands.
"We have worked with Finlay Plant South East for more than 15 years to introduce new plant that makes a real difference to our operations.
"We also benefit from excellent support in terms of service and spares, to ensure day-to-day operations run smoothly and efficiently."
Leon Sheehy, managing director of Finlay Plant South East, said: "Cappagh’s success shows the value of ongoing investment and innovation.
"As part of that process, we’ve worked together to ensure all machinery has been introduced with the ability to work in an integrated way and in a variety of configurations, ensuring the plant is flexible and highly productive."
