Binn Group Ltd celebrates 20th year milestone as it takes delivery of the 100th HAAS TYRON sold into the UK and Ireland
Scotland’s leading independent provider of integrated recycling and resource management services, Binn Group Ltd, has taken delivery of the 100th HAAS TYRON sold into the UK and Ireland and the 10th TYRON sold into Scotland. This milestone for CRJ Services and the HAAS brand coincides with Binn Group celebrating its 20th year in since incorporation.
“The 100th HAAS TYRON sold into the UK and Ireland is a very proud milestone for both CRJ Services and HAAS and reflects the quality of the machinery as well as our commitment to the brand. With 10 TYRONs now in Scotland, making up some of the 100 now in the UK and Ireland, we are extremely grateful to all those who have shown their trust in us and look forward to continuing to support our customers with quality machinery and exceptional service levels.” - Ben McQuaid – Director at CRJ Services Ltd.
Binn Group was established in 2001 by father and son John and Allan MacGregor as part of a land diversification project on their Binn Farm estate. Rapid growth has seen Binn Group expand beyond their original landfill provision, to become Scotland’s largest and most diverse independent waste management operation.
The array of services offered by Binn Group focuses on recycling, reuse, waste minimisation, landfill diversion and improving the environment. Binn operates a materials recycling facility where a wide variety of recyclable materials are separated, graded, baled, and sent to re-processors. As a result, over 86% of all the materials entering the facility are transformed into usable commodities. The remaining 14% is then processed into SRF (Solid Recovered Fuel), which generates electricity and power (avoiding use of fossil fuels) from the materials that would have otherwise gone to landfill.
“It has been great working with CRJ. As a contractor and operator, themselves they understand the challenges we face with equipment downtime. In the rare occasion we have an issue, CRJ’s team remotely diagnose the issue and arrive promptly onsite with the experience to get us back up and running with minimal downtime.” - Stewart Smith – Operations Director at Binn Group Ltd.
Binn Group has been a loyal customer to both CRJ as a machinery solutions provider, and utilised HAAS as a brand of shredder for a number of years. Their first HAAS TYRON, purchased back in 2018, replaced their pre-existing single shaft shredder which was struggling to consistently produce the quality of shredded material required for their SRF product. They have been so impressed with the performance over the last 3 years, the decision was taken to replace their shredder with a brand-new TYRON.
“Binn Group has shown great faith in CRJ over the years, which is further reinforced with the purchase of their second HAAS TYRON. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Binn Group continue to grow from strength to strength during the 4 years CRJ have been supplying them with machinery, and I look forward to continuing our strong relationship into the future.” - Damian Casey – Area Sales Manager at CRJ Services Ltd.
The HAAS TYRON is the ideal shredder for Binn Group, due to its consistent performance across the range of waste materials processed on site. As Binn’s strapline suggests, “your waste is changing”, and the TYRON facilitates this change with its ability to alter the shredding sequence, though three inbuilt pre-set settings for MSW, wood and green waste. With a final setting that can be customised by the operator to suit their specific waste type.
“Binn Group has been dealing with CRJ for many years and have always been extremely happy with the service levels we receive. The reliability and performance of our first Haas Tyron convinced us to stick with the Haas brand once it came time to upgrade, coupled with the backup service CRJ provide.” - Allan MacGregor - CEO at Binn Group Ltd.
