Showcasing materials transformation in Derbyshire

For those concerned with transforming feed materials into valuable products, the capabilities of a new range of transformers from processing technology firm ALLU were on show at Hillhead 2018, on 26-28 June in Buxton, Derbyshire. Demonstrations were given by the firm’s new UK distributor, Murray Plant (a Blue Machinery Group company).

The new range comprises an excavator/ loader/ tractor-mounted processing bucket which screens, pulverizes, aerates, blends, mixes, separates – and even crushes, feeds and loads – different materials. In this way, a variety of materials can be transformed into highly valuable products, making any business involved in waste and recycling more efficient, and more profitable.

Seemingly catering for applications of all sizes, and capable of processing any material that can be screened and sorted, the ALLU Transformer Series includes the compact DL and D Series, as well as the “truly massive” M and G Series. According to Murray Plant, the latter have proved themselves on truly massive quarrying and surface mining applications throughout the world, and are designed to be used by excavators up to 300 tonnes in size.

Earlier this year Blue Machinery announced the acquisition of Rammer’s UK dealer, Murray Plant. As well as being the exclusive Rammer dealer for the UK, Murray Plant Ltd was also the Scotland distributor for the ALLU range of Transformers and Processors, and is now the exclusive distributor for the whole of the UK.

“What is genuinely exciting for all UK quarrying, demolition, construction, civil engineering and material handling businesses, is that now, for the very first time, the leading brands have been brought together,” says Murray Plant’s sales director Fergal O’Neill. “Visitors to our stand at Hillhead were excited by the operating synergies now available to them through Blue Machinery and Murray Plant.”

Of Murray Plant’s first Hillhead as ALLU’s exclusive UK distributor, Ola Ulmala, president of ALLU states: “We saw at first hand during Hillhead how the combination of ALLU equipment and global aftermarket support, together with the local knowledge and industry expertise of Blue Machinery and Murray Plant, will enable ALLU customers to benefit from a winning combination.”
