Matpro delivers UK's first Haas 2500XL Tracked Shredder into Biffa Dewsbury
Matpro Machinery has delivered its first Haas 2500XL shredder into leading waste management company, Biffa. The Dewsbury facility, which processes approximately 500 tons of waste material a day, identified the purchase of a new, powerful piece of shredding equipment as a crucial, long-term step in a bid to satisfy increased capacities and greater tonnages at the Yorkshire site.
Having dealt with Matpro’s sister company CRJ Services throughout the past number of years, Biffa Dewsbury was already aware of the attention that is provided to Aftersales and machine uptime by both integrated companies.
Engineered in Germany, the Haas Tyron “Viking” is highly regarded as the outstanding market leader in the slow speed shredding market. A robust and resilient machine, the HAAS comes in 3 varied sizes (1500XL, 2000XL and 2500XL) with no less than 4 crushing programmes available; suitable for a wide variety of waste and recycling applications. Its tough shafts are renowned for being the most aggressive and reliable in the industry, delivering on fierce performance and extreme durability for customers around the world.
Ben McQuaid, Director at Matpro Machinery commented; “Based on Craig’s need to sufficiently maximise production efficiency, the HAAS 2500XL has all the key attributes to deliver. The largest of the Haas shredding family, the 2500XL model has a greater infeed area with extra-long independent shafts at 2500mm each, driven by a 760HP Scania engine.
What makes the Haas brand different from other shredders on the market is its ability to deliver maximum return on investment for the customer. Not only does it deliver on exceptional performance, the Haas has also built its name around superb ease of use, ease of ongoing maintenance and delivering increased durability for its customers worldwide.”
Craig Burrows, Depot Manager at Biffa Dewsbury commented; “The machine is performing really well. We are currently trialling the different waste streams within our facility and it is continuing to process the waste efficiently”
