Scrapco Metal Recycling, a family run business in Kent, has recently taken ownership of a new Kiverco waste recycling plant. Scrapco, which first started trading in scrap metal in 2006, has seen their more recent skip hire service grow rapidly. This meant that they required a new recycling system that would be flexible and could be adapted to accommodate further growth.
Scrapco approached Kiverco with very specific requirements for what they wanted to achieve, their available footprint and possible future growth. Working closely with Scrapco during this consultation stage gave Kiverco a good understanding of their business and they were able to offer a solution which meant that Scrapco could improve their current processes, increase efficiency and also adapt the plant for further increases in tonnage.
The current recycling plant installation, which was completed within 10 days includes a belt feeder, trommel, 4 bay picking station, blower and a magnet. It is designed to process all types of waste, in this case, mainly Construction & Demolition.
Danny, Managing Director of Scrapco says, “We are delighted with this new system from Kiverco. It will massively help our business and our future growth plans. At the start of the project, we had feedback from people about Kiverco’s reputation for good quality equipment and it really was true what they had said - the equipment is definitely built with backbone! The company was professional from start to finish. They know how to help companies like ours grow and get the most of the equipment, so we envisage a long-term relationship.”
JP Devlin, Area Sales Manager for Kiverco says, “Scrapco were a fantastic company to work with on a project like this. They had put a lot of research into what they wanted, visited other Kiverco installations and along with some advice from us, we were able to design a plant that fitted their requirements. I’m looking forward to seeing their skip hire business go from strength to strength.”
