Welton Aggregates, established in 1999 in Welton le Marsh, East Lincolnshire are a family run business who started out as Welton Quarries operating out of Welton Chalk Quarry and Recycling Facility. The company is ever-expanding with a recycling facility in Kirton in Lindsey Quarry, North Lincolnshire where inert soils are processed, and recycled aggregates are washed. They also provide premium yellow and blue limestone to Lincolnshire County Council from their Hibaldstow Quarry.
Welton Aggregates need strong and reliable crushers to keep their quarry running and they made the decision to replace their current crushers on site and chose Duo to provide them with a Powerscreen PT400x and a Powerscreen Metrotrak.
The Powerscreen brand offered Welton Aggregates increased production rates onsite and the high residual values of the equipment was a major deciding factor when choosing the best equipment for their facility.
By choosing these specific Powerscreen products they also found that it would lower the running costs for them. No need for movement orders means Welton can quickly react to jobs that come in and also provide flexibility for planning their jobs.
The PT400x offers large output production volumes giving Welton the ability to stockpile a number of different products to meet any spike demands or overcome weather restrictions where crushing and screening isn’t possible.
