CMB International help Angle Park Sand & Gravel increase their processing capabilities
Based close to Ladybank, Cupar, in the Howe of Fife, Angle Park Sand & Gravel Ltd (APSG) is an independent business that has been producing high quality sand and aggregates for the construction industry, precast manufacturing, asphalt production, sports surfaces and drainage works since 1961.
Incorporated in 1961 by founder Frank Cuthbert to produce and supply sand and gravel supplies for the construction of the new town of Glenrothes; today the business is managed by Ian, his son Peter and daughter Kerry, representing the second and third generation who manage their two sand and gravel pits at Melville Gates and Mountcastle.
The adjacent Mountcastle site was acquired by APSG in 2012 with reserves of approximately 1.6 million tonnes of sand and gravel. Following the acquisition, the company installed a sand and gravel plant to produce a course concrete sand and four gravels.
Today, this third-generation family-run business pride themselves in supplying high-quality sands and aggregates to domestic and commercial markets throughout the central belt of Scotland.
Protecting the environment is also high on the list with APSG working continually to reinstate the prime agricultural land of the Howe of Fife with over 50,000 trees planted by the company.
Recently APSG completed the final upgrade of their wash plant by replacing an ageing screen with a bespoke wash screen which was again manufactured and supplied by CMB International
    Completing the upgrade of the wash plant:
Having previously supplied two screens – 1.5m x 6.1m double-deck (Feb 2019) and a 1.8m x 3.6m double-deck (June 2020) CMB completed the upgrade of the whole plant manufacturing and supplying a bespoke 1.5m wide x 3.6m long, double-deck screen. This screen came complete with Tema Isenmann - WS85 media and polyurethane fan sprays.
Peter Cuthbert – Director of APSG commented, “The replacement of this third screen was the last step to complete the upgrade of the wash plant. As CMB had replaced the first two it was an obvious decision based on past experiences to ask them to complete the upgrade.”
The screen was duly installed by CMB engineers at the Mountcastle site and included new spring and motor mounts within the original framework. The whole project was completed and commissioned over a period of 2 days allowing the plant to resume production quickly.
Peter concluded, “CMB have looked after us from the start of the upgrade back in 2019. I could not fault the product or the installation of this screen. Their efficacy within H&S whilst working and supplying an installation in a prescribed time frame is unquestionable. I would highly recommend them without a doubt.”
