 Bulk Handling
Shillibiers increase
their processing power
Based in South Wales, Shillibiers were originally founded in 1970 and from its early roots the company has prospered as a family business, and throughout expansion and growth has maintained strong family values.
The company offer a wide and varied range of services including recycling of soil, stone, concrete, brick, site clearance, skip hire, haulage, and crusher, screen, and plant hire. With over 87% of waste recycled the company offers a range of waste-disposal services, ranging from hook loaders for handling waste, tippers, and waste transfer stations for recycling.
Recently the company invested in two Keestrack machines, a B3 Mobile Jaw Crusher and a K4 Mobile Scalper Screen which have both been supplied by the sole UK dealer Warwick Ward who are HQ based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, with depots in the Midlands (Alcester) and the South (Harlow).
Malcolm Corbett - Director, takes up the story, “Originally we started with several machines working on recycling operations in the yard and contract crusher hire with a excavator and operators. We already owned a Keestrack crusher which we had operated for 3-years, and we were ready to replace but when the local dealer relinquished their Keestrack dealership we were reluctant to acquire another without dealer backup.
“We went to the Hillhead show and talked to Keestrack and learnt that a new dealer had not been appointed, so we chose another manufacturer which was available from a local dealer. This new machine however proved to be unsatisfactory and after 18 months we were approached by Warwick Ward, we decided to invest again in a the Keestrack brand.
With Warwick Ward allowing a good trade-in on our existing machine we invested in a new B3 Mobile Jaw Crusher and with business picking up rapidly we simultaneously replaced our seven-year-old Keestrack Novum screen with a new K4 Mobile Scalper Screen which were both delivered in May/June.”
Keestrack B3 Mobile Jaw Crusher:
Undeniably the most compact and high performing jaw crusher in the 30-ton class, the B3 offers a feed size up to 550mm (22”), with a feed opening of 1000 x 650mm
(40” x 25.5” and offers a processing capacity of 280tph
