Washing Feature Story
 Sarendon Hill Quarry
 Small enough to care,
big enough to handle
With over 25 years of servicing the construction and building industry including road and rail networks, family-run business NRS Group Ltd was formed in 2005 by MD - Mark Ketcher and Lorraine Shirley, when they operated a small fleet of tippers and plant. This soon expanded from haulage to the operation of inert landfills. In 2011 the company had the opportunity to purchase Saredon Quarry and today NRS Group operate some of the largest inert tipping facilities and quarrying and recycling aggregate production operations in the midlands.
All of the aggregate processing plants have been supplied by PowerX Equipment who have maintained a long-lasting relationship based on a total commitment, with service and integrity at the core of the partnership.
Within the last nine years the PowerX Equipment team have designed, delivered, and commissioned ‘state-of-the art’ processing plants for NRS Aggregates that have been designed to process on-site material to produce the maximum tonnage of saleable material to satisfy current marketing demands from their clients.
Founded by industry specialists PowerX bring decades of experience in the market to supplying a ‘next generation’ plant design with an understanding of continually changing demands.
Meriden Quarry:
Meriden Quarry was the 1st project for the PowerX team with the plant based on a Terex® AggreSand 165 modular wash plant with a Terex® Aggrescrub 150. An impact crusher was also installed to handle any oversize via a recirculatory system.
The Terex® AggreSand 165 modular wash plant combines aggregate washing and screening with sand processing on a
modular chassis. It brings together tried and trusted components in an innovative modular design, setting itself apart from other washing systems in the marketplace.
