Inverurie Precast, a Scottish concrete manufacturer, is a family company operating for over 35 years, based north of Aberdeen. Starting off doing building, they now manufacture precast concrete. Amongst other things this is used for windowsills, doorsteps and bridge units, and their market sectors including Construction, Farming, Agricultural 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. To prevent this they chose 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 if for their own projects or sell it on to other customers. They also charge customers to bring in rubble for crushing, that the customer then collects to reuse. 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 and seen MB Crushing Buckets in action. Therefore he was aware of how they worked and the potential benefits gained from them.
He did some research after this online, and approached David Marshall, Scottish Area Sales Manager at Worsley Plant. David set up a trial for Jason. Jason was impressed. The bucket did exactly what he wanted so they decided to buy it.
“The MB L200 is a great bucket. It does exactly what we need to it to do. We’ve never had any issues with it, it’s very heavy duty and I’ve got absolutely no complaints!. It’s helped us add a new revenue stream to our business, help other customers to recycle, and we’re pleased to no longer send anything to landfill.”
