 Cover Story
 Skene boosts production
with a new Finlay Cone
With a history that can be traced back over half a century, Skene Group are a family-owned construction services group based in Glenrothes, Fife. The company was formed in 1968 to undertake contracting works in the local area but quickly and steadily evolved into one of the largest independent operators in the construction materials sector.
2022 sees the company supplying a variety of services to the construction sector from raw material supplies such as sand, gravel, and crushed rock as well as concrete and lightweight blocks and ready mixed concrete. Both their block manufacturing plants, and concrete batching plants are all supplied with raw materials from the company’s own quarries based at Lomond and Soutra with finished blocks being shipped across the UK whilst the ready mixed concrete plants supply well over 1000m3 per day across the central belt and borders regions.
Skene’s Lomond quarry on the outskirts of Leslie is a producer of high-quality sand and gravel products as well as crushed hard rock aggregates produced used in-house for their manufacturing processes. Kevin Hill, Quarry Operations Director commented “Our own concrete manufacturing plants are taking the majority of our material that we are able to produce.”
To ensure production rates are maintained on a regular basis the company has recently invested in a further delivery of crushing technology from industry leaders Molson Finlay.
Molson, already the English and Welsh dealers for the Finlay range of crushing and screening equipment since 2018, acquired the former Scottish dealer Finlay Scotland just a year later making them the sole dealer for what has recently become the Finlay range of equipment.
