G. Webb invest in Keestrack processing power.

Originally founded in 1947, G. Webb is a family-owned company based at their Longstanton HQ near Cambridge and currently operate a fleet of over 60 vehicles. As well as offering bulk road haulage the company also supplies a wide variety of construction materials and aggregates.

With two processing sites one at Little Paxton and a second at South Witham– the company have recently increased their processing power and efficiency by investing in two Keestrack machines, a B5 Mobile Jaw Crusher and K4 Mobile Scalper Screen and a B3 Mobile Jaw Crusher - which they currently have on short-term hire for evaluation.

All three machines have been supplied by sole UK dealer Warwick Ward who are based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, with service depots in the Midlands (Alcester) and the South (Harlow).

Tom Pope, Keestrack Sales Manager, Warwick Ward, commented, “Keestrack have been pioneers in the field of engineering for crushers and screens since 1988 and the quality and value that Keestrack products add to a business was apparent to the client when the notable fuel savings on the three G. Webb machines were calculated. With the cost of fuel constantly rising all companies are looking at their running costs and the whole product range from Keestrack provides the lowest cost of ownership in the industry, increasing profits for customers. That partnered with Warwick Wards national coverage and outstanding service, keep businesses moving forward.”

Keestrack efficiently processing on two sites:

The K4 Mobile Scalper Screen and the B3 Mobile Jaw Crusher are currently employed on recycling duties at Little Paxton, working in tandem processing a mixed feed of incoming material which is providing the company with saleable recycled aggregates.

A third machine, a B5 Mobile Jaw Crusher is employed at their South Witham quarry where it crushes limestone directly fed by shovel from the face, producing clean single sizes and 6f5 aggregate for construction.

Darren Allison – Operations Director of G. Webb, takes up the story, “I have dealt with Tom for some time, and he has always guided me in machine selection. When we had processing issues Warwick Ward arranged a demonstration machine and Tom provided me with calculated fuel burn data, and production figures. This was a very successful demo which led us to invest in the K4.

“Further investment was also made at our quarry with the purchase of the B5 and I am very happy with how these machines are performing. Currently Tom has supplied us with a B3 on short term hire which is working on recycling duties in tandem with the K4 while we evaluate the machine. Proof of the pudding has been clear to date with a reduction in fuel costs.”
