Finlay Group powers productivity boost at Tom Prichard Contracting
A SOUTH WALES-based demolition and plant hire company has reported a boom in production after the arrival of new plant from Finlay Plant SW.
Tom Prichard Contracting, based in Llantrisant, has taken delivery of a Terex Finlay 883+ Spaleck and a Terex Finlay 893 in the last six months, supplied by Finlay Plant SW, part of the Finlay Group of companies.
Since then the business has seen an increase in its soil and stone production at its Project Yellow site in Pontyclun, one of the company’s four recycling yards.
Priding itself on offering a quality and cost-effective solution, Tom Prichard Contracting is a leading provider of construction and support services throughout Wales, the Midlands and the South West, offering services including site clearance, bulk excavation and infrastructure services, as well as recycling and waste management services.
Tom Prichard, Director at Tom Prichard Contracting, said: “The operators are very happy with both units.
“I’m confident that the plant will continue to increase our productivity and ability to supply our customers with the products they exactly require.”
The Terex Finlay 883+ Spaleck is producing a top grade 15mm soil whilst the Terex Finlay 893 is screening all the construction and demolition waste brought to the site.
The ultimate in mobile screening and separation, the Terex Finlay 883+ Spaleck is working continuously for Tom Prichard Contracting, regardless of the weather conditions.
It features 3D and Flip-Flow technology for nearly blockage and maintenance-free screening, making it ideal for processing difficult applications, such as shredded metal, coal, soil and wood.
The second plant, the Terex Finlay 893, is producing subsoil and two clean stone products to crush.
Featuring an aggressive forward-facing inclined modular configuration screen box with a 20’x6’ top deck and an 18’x6’ bottom deck, this heavy-duty screener is engineered for processing quarrying, mining, construction and demolition debris as well as topsoil, recycling, sand, gravel, coal and aggregate applications.
Darren Simpson, Project Yellow Supervisor at Tom Prichard Contracting, said: “The plant meets our needs and both machines are performing well for us.
“We’ve always found that the machines we’ve had from Finlay Plant SW have been very good and reliable.
“The excellent spares and back-up service we receive too is another reason we keep going back to them.”
Tom Prichard Contracting currently has a fleet of ten Terex Finlay machines, all supplied by Finlay Plant SW.
Gareth Johnson, Managing Director of Finlay Plant SW, said: “It’s great to see the plant proving their worth out on site and contributing to the continued success of Tom Prichard Contracting.”
