PDMR Picks Whitham Mills
Greater Manchester-headquartered engineering company, Whitham Mills, has been appointed by waste management and recycling firm, PDMR.
Part of the wider Street Fuels Limited group, PDMR commissioned the UK’s fastest growing full-service design-manufacturer of recycling machinery and consumables, to supply a high throughput twin ram baler, to run alongside an existing MRF system, at its Chatham Docks site, in Kent.
Answering a competitive tender to supply a baler which could cope with multiple materials, Whitham Mills has installed a GB1575TR – 120 HP.
The wide-mouth baler features a 170 tonne press and is capable of processing a range of materials, including cardboard, plastic bottles, and steel and aluminium cans. It can produce bale sizes of up to 900kg in weight, and the throughput on paper and cardboard is up to 13 tonnes per hour.
Ben Smart, Whitham Mills’ managing director, added: “We’re finishing 2017 strongly, with turnover up more than a third on this time last year. Much of our work comes from repeat business, based on world-class equipment and a comprehensive end-to-end service.
“But it’s equally gratifying to partner with new customers, and we’re incredibly pleased to have delivered a baler which met PDMR’s brief perfectly.
