A Staffordshire-based aggregates recycling specialist has continued its long-standing relationship with Finlay Central with the purchase of a new Terex Finlay 683 Supertrak.
Cold Carr Recycling Ltd, which has its headquarters in Cold Meece, near Stone, has seen its business grow on the back of a commitment to environmental best practice and the production of high quality materials in conjunction with an ongoing investment in the latest plant and machinery.
Now one of the Midlands’ leading aggregate recycling contractors, the company historically operated within the midlands area, working predominantly in the local authority sector.
However they are beginning to expand into works with private quarrying companies, supported by two dedicated crushing teams and have recently operated in Yorkshire, North Wales and Worcestershire.
The 683 Supertrak is helping Cold Carr Recycling produce high specification material for re-use in asphalt from highways maintenance arisings.
The waste material is processed for re-use in road construction and needs to be of the highest quality to meet the demands for surface dressings.
Material is crushed before being fed into the 683. It is then screened to -6mm, 6-14mm and 14mm plus, as well as the option of a 25mm single size.
The 683 is renowned for its quality, performance and productivity, combining scalping, screening and stockpiling into one self-contained unit.
Its rugged design, with a 3.66m x 1.5m (12’ x 5’) screen, enables the machine to handle materials such as sand and gravel, limestone, crushed stone, coal, topsoil and demolition waste, while a remote tipping reject grid, hydraulic screen tensioning and three on-board hydraulic folding conveyors are all available as standard.
Barry Morrison, of Cold Carr Recycling, said: “Terex Finlay machines are the best and the service we receive from Finlay Central is also very good.
“We process materials for clients’ needs, our clients come first. We need machines that will do the work – and we get the support to do this from Finlay Central.”
Neil Bailey, Sales Engineer at Finlay Central, which is part of the Finlay Group of companies, said: “For almost 15 years we have supplied and hired plant to Cold Carr
“It’s great to see this family business grow and build on its success with a commitment to the introduction of the latest machinery and a high quality ethic.”
