Timberpak Scotland secures Haas Tyron 2500 shredder for Bellshill operations
Timberpak Scotland, a subsidiary of EGGER (UK) Limited, has acquired Scotland’s ‘first ever’ Haas 2500 slow-speed shredder from exclusive UK distributors, Matpro Machinery Ltd. The industrial waste shredder will help to process 100,000 tonnes of waste wood a year at its recycling facility in Bellshill, Lanarkshire. The largest of the Haas Tyron shredding range, the 2500 model was chosen due to its sheer ability to cope with Timberpak’s ever increasing, incoming supply of waste wood.
Gordon Argo, Operations Manager at Timberpak Scotland commented;
“After our previous shredder had run its course, we required a trustworthy replacement which could more than handle the fairly high tonnages we get through on a daily basis. It was also a crucial requirement the new shredder would consistently create uniform, downsized material, which was a major problem with our last shredder, as the larger material being created post-shredding was continuously being blocked by the magnet belts.”
Talking about the Haas’s performance so far, Mark Hayton, Director at Timberpak commented;
“Absolutely superb. It has more than lived up to expectations. The large infeed area allows for greater tonnages to be processed at a single time and the independently operated shredding shafts are helping to produce high-quality downsized material. Working in conjunction with our picking station, we are now producing the cleanest, uniform material we have ever made.”
Ben McQuaid, Director at Matpro Machinery Ltd commented;
“We are again delighted to satisfy another longstanding customer and receive more positive feedback concerning the Haas brand. The Haas 2500 really is the perfect fit for a substantial waste wood processing business such as Timberpak and we are more than happy to see they are starting to witness both the functional and operational benefits in such a short space of time”
