Enhanced Efficiency and Productivity with Terex Washing Systems at Hoddam Quarry & Concrete Products  

Hoddam Quarry & Concrete Products a long-standing family-run business headquartered in Dumfriesshire, Scotland, has been a key player in the building materials and concrete supply industry since its inception in 1958. The company boasts a diverse portfolio of quarry materials and quality-assured ready-mixed concrete.

With a commitment to serving a wide range of clients, from large construction firms to individual homeowners, Hoddam Quarry & Concrete Products operates two sand and gravel quarries at Kilblane and Broom, along with a recently inaugurated hard rock quarry at Hazelbank, St. Ann’s.


In 2022, Hoddam Quarry & Concrete Products faced the challenge of upgrading their existing wash plant at the Hoddam site. The goal was to enhance efficiency, increase product variety, and streamline operations while maintaining the highest standards of quality in their offerings. The previous wash plant was becoming outdated, leading to inefficiencies in production and limited product options.


In partnership with Terex Washing Systems and their local dealer, Blue Machinery (Scotland) Ltd, Hoddam Contracting opted for a wash plant setup featuring the Terex Washing Systems M2100 and FM 120BW. This new installation revolutionized their washing processes, enabling the production of five distinct products: 2mm sand, 4mm sand, 4-10mm aggregate, 10-20mm aggregate, and 20-40mm aggregate, including a specialized type 1 product.
