CK International balers
partner with Blue Group in
the UK
Day four in Co. Tyrone and we visited CK International in Dungannon. This successful baling machinery manufacturer began business in 1996 and over the past 10yrs has been supplying baling solutions to a huge selection of recycling companies, both big and small. With their machines evolving into industry leading designs they are now a global market leader producing fully automatic baling machines that can process up to 40 tonne per hour.
L-R: Mark Doherty, Head of Sales with Raymond O’Hagan, Sales Director
We met with Raymond O’Hagan, Product Specialist and Mark Doherty, Head of Sales. Raymond started by giving us an in-sight into the business “Our focus on product development and innovation are the two things that have made us market leaders in the industry and our commitment to our staff runs in tandem with that. We have grown with our people who are extremely
important to us and we place a lot of emphasis on training and development. We have a strong track record of developing graduates who have progressed through the organisation to take on key roles and help drive the business forward. We have increased the workforce on-site here in Dungannon by 10% in the last 12 months and continue to grow our UK base of field service engineers. These engineers are based strategically across the UK, all have mobile workshop vehicles and are fully trained across our whole range of balers to provide extremely high-quality servicing.”
Mark Doherty commented “As a company we have seen significant growth over the last number of years and we have ambitious plans to continue to grow both the UK and international sides of the business. Our product range consists of vertical balers, horizontal balers, semi-automatic balers, channel press balers, twin ram fully automatic balers and compactors, and it’s the twin ram fully automatic balers that are really gaining popularity in the recycling industry. Twin ram balers are typically used in waste transfer stations or as part of a larger recycling MRF system where high volumes of various waste materials including RDF, SRF, plastic, pet and cardboard are being processed and high throughputs up to 40 tonne per hour are achievable. Waste can be fed into the machines using conveyor, shovel feed or selector grab and a range of tying options is available. The fully automatic machines offer versatility, allowing an easy transfer between materials. The CK twin ram also produces a high density mill size bale, resulting in maximum payloads for our customers.
Blue Group become a CK International partner and dealer for the UK
Recently CK International have secured a long-term supply partnership with the Blue Group. This will see Blue acting as a UK dealer for CK International where they will sell the range of twin ram balers and channel press balers as part of all- encompassing turnkey recycling plants.
