Blue Group Focus on Scrap Industry
Blue Group are the leading provider of material processing equipment across the UK and Ireland, offering a range of products for the Quarry and Demolition, Energy, Recycling, Scrap and Port Industries. With eight strategically placed offices across the UK and Ireland, Blue Group offer a wide range of high-quality products from some of the most renowned brands on the planet.
Blue has decided to take the approach of appointing several salesmen that will have a primary focus on selling into the scrap industry, to help bolster our presence within the sector. Richard Creighton, Dominic McCann and Darren Smyth are the three that will work across their specific regions, to supply our large portfolio of scrap specialist equipment.
Richard has a vast sales background which most notably includes a plant rental company, catering mainly for the recycling industry, during which he had great success with scrap customers. Coming up to his one-year anniversary with the company, Richard has just been appointed as a Scrap Sales Manager. Dominic joined Blue Fuchs two years ago, before the nationwide merger of the brand, so he has great knowledge and understanding of the Fuchs material handlers which are so prominent within the scrap sector. Darren joined Blue back in 2013, following a 13-week training course at the Terex factory in Dungannon, Northern Ireland. He will now focus his efforts on helping to develop Blue’s presence within the Scrap industry.
Blue Group offer a wide range of specialist scrap equipment, which can be used to maximise efficiency and profitability. We house some of the industry’s most reputable brands including Fuchs, Taurus, ZB Group, BlueMAC, Fortress, Rammer, Spaleck and Westeria.
Fuchs Material Handlers are leading in class when it comes to handling scrap, with Blue offering a full range of machines suitable for different applications within the scrap industry. With machine weights ranging between 14.5-87 tonnes and a reach from 8.5 – 24.5 meters, there is a handler to meet every requirement.
Long-standing customer of Blue Central, C. Soar and Sons, based in Barnsley, recently took on five new Fuchs machines. Being the UK’s leader in the dismantling and recycling of electrical plant equipment, Soars needed some new material handlers to speed up their process. The Fuchs MHL 350F has a high operating weight of 37.8 tonnes so was the perfect solution for unloading bulk tippers on site. Whilst the Fuchs MHL 310F & 320F are two of the smaller handlers, they are great at sorting out the smaller scrap and copper cables.
Blue supply the full range of Taurus Bluline metal balers and shear balers as well as the Taurus Redline range of pre-shredders for the scrap metal industry. Our range of Taurus Shear Balers offer different options depending on what is required. There is the ACH which is a compact baler needed for yards with little space to work with and the ACS is a stationary version for those with more space. The whole shear baler product line has a cutting force which ranges between 450 – 2000 tonnes and a box length which varies between 3 - 5 meters.
ZB Group provides some of the world’s leading Mobile Hammermill Shredders used for processing a range of scrap metals. The machines cover a whole variety of applications with throughputs ranging between 3 – 40 tonnes per hour and Hammermill sizes that go from 1 to 2 meters in width. One of the main benefits of the ZB range is that they are mobile, this is beneficial because there is no requirement for civil work and planning permissions.
BlueMAC, part of the Blue Group companies, specialise in engineering and designing robust, tailored material recycling systems designed for exact specifications. The Mobile AMS (All Metal Separator) is a tracked self-propelled machine designed to separate ferrous and non-ferrous metals from feed material. The AMS has revolutionised the way in which a business can streamline its operational tasks and cut down on overheads. The machine is dependable, durable and reliable, whilst offering increased quality and price to the end product.
Another Blue Group company, Murray Plant, offer several attachments used within the scrap industry. They offer two of the best mobile shears available on the market, in Fortress and Rammer, which are used for cutting and processing scrap metals.
With the new segmented approach that Blue Group are undertaking, and with the introduction of the specialist scrap salesmen, businesses across the UK and Ireland will benefit from the high-quality scrap equipment on offer.
