Telestack - the tried, tested and trusted brand within the conveying business!
With the eagerly anticipated Hillhead 2018 exhibition fast approaching, Telestack are preparing for their most comprehensive display of equipment yet, with no less than 6 new models making their Hillhead debut on the stand, along with some of the more established and recognised Telestack models. Hillhead has always been a show case for what is new from Telestack since the previous show, and 2018 is no different. Having over three decades of experience within the material handling business and another year’s record sales performance, Telestack are widely regarded as one of the leading suppliers globally of all equipment relating to material handling and plan to use the platform to demonstrate the breadth and depth of their range and experience.
Malachy Gribben, Commercial Director comments “Telestack are considered the tried, tested and trusted brand within the mobile conveying business. We don’t take this loyalty lightly and we continue to invest upon our decades of experience. In this business you have to earn experience – it is not transferable! Our display this year at Hillhead will demonstrate how our investment in new product development, coupled with the constant communication with our industry leading global dealer network, produces the most innovative and consistently reliable equipment in the material handling market. The Telestack stand this year will mark a definite move to more sophisticated and innovative equipment and we are anticipating that Stand E11 will prove one of the highlights of the 2018 exhibition!”

Telestack have matured into two clear divisions - Telestack Aggregates and Mining and Telestack Ports and Inland Terminals - and offer a range of solutions and reference sites along the logistics chain from pit, to port to plant.
Gribben continues “Telestack have grown extensively, not only in terms of sales but also in terms of new geographic markets, new industry sectors, new applications, new commodities handled and the associated product range. Our mobile bulk material handling systems can fit into a complete range of applications following the logistics chain from the Pit to the Port and subsequently from Port to the Plant. Our systems are designed to enhance productivity, flexibility and efficiency in every operation by incorporating innovative and clever design backed up with solid build and high-quality finish. Continuous innovation has been critical to our growth and as we watch competitors, old and new, entering the market with products we have been offering for over 10 years, it is vital that we keep innovating to stay ahead and our stand in 2018 reflects this aggressive product development.”
Telestack have invested heavily in their manufacturing facility and will continue to do so over the forthcoming 12 months with plans to further extend their manufacturing and customer support footprint. Demonstrated by their recent £2million investment in one of the most technically advanced paint shops in Ireland and the UK, Telestack keep quality and experience centre to their business.
Managing Director Martin Dummigan explains “Telestack are one of the primary bulk material handling suppliers and we have a responsibility to our dealers and customers. We have invested significantly in our facilities, we have increased our workforce, we continue to source the best suppliers and we recognize our obligation to invest in our new products. New entrants to the market are a given in any industry but we remain steadfast to our principles of quality, innovation and loyalty. Our sales have grown by 60% in the last 2 years and this didn’t happen by chance. A significant factor in our success story is our dealer network. We have long term partnerships across the world and these relationships are based on mutual trust and respect. We very much appreciate the hard work and investments that our dealers make, and together we are anticipating another record-breaking year in 2018.”
Telestack will use Hillhead to globally launch a number of new and innovative models including the Olympian W1800 Drive Over Mobile Truck Unloader. Designed to accept bulk material from Trucks/Bulkers, the Olympian range is designed to be loaded directly and can receive up to 20m³ payload (32 tonne). The machine can feed auxiliary equipment, reclaim on to other conveyors, directly load ships, trucks, rail wagons etc. Since the Drive Over Truck Unloader is wheel mounted the unit has excellent mobility on site and will eliminate double handling of material, which ultimately reduces overall costs for operator. Telestack solutions offer the most efficient method of transferring bulk material from trucks, rail wagons, wheel loaders or discharging grab cranes to auxiliary equipment in a range of applications and industries. The range offers greater flexibility and mobility than fixed infrastructures while maintaining performance and minimising any civil requirements.
Telestack will also display the AggStack® 36 x 140 Radial Telescopic Conveyor with self-contained power unit. The AggStack® range is also available as low tail and self-contained options to enhance the proven record of performance and reliability of the range in aggregate applications around the globe. The self-contained diesel engine allows the Operator to position and operate all machine functions without the need for an external power source enhancing the flexibility and ease of use for the Operator.
Another exciting development for the Telestack brand is the enhancement to the Telestack hopper feeder range. The MH 5680 Mulch Hopper is a track mounted fully mobile feeder conveyor designed to stockpile materials such as mulch, biomass, woodchips, shredded pallets, wood pellet, green waste, palm kernel shells etc. It can be directly fed by wheel loaders, grab cranes, wood grinders, shredders, screeners or trommels. The MH 5680 has a 1400mm (56”) wide feeder belt and steep 70° hopper sides. These features maximise the hopper opening to allow material to flow unrestricted onto the Incline conveyor. A rotating auger at the outlet aerates and untangles difficult materials and regulates the flow onto the incline conveyor. The unit has excellent mobility on site and will eliminate double handling of material, which reduces overall costs for the operator. The Revolution feature also means that the hopper feeder has a centre mounted slew bearing that enables 360° rotation of the hopper and boom. Ideal for barge loading and unloading, rail loading and unloading and stockpiling, the parallel travel feature enables the operator to manoeuvre the unit parallel to the vessel removing the need to reposition the unit, thus enhancing loading rates and efficiency! The Revolution option is available on all HF/LF/MH models.
This is just a small selection of what Telestack promises for the three-day event with much more on the stand.
