‘V20 is for versatile’ for National Wood Processing business
UK-wide wood processing firm A.W. Jenkinson Forest Products with its head office in Penrith will be using a new Terex TEE shredder to help sort through tonnes of wood co-products. The firm has taken a Terex TEE TDS V20 shredder from environmental equipment supplier Molson Green after it impressed following a series of trials.
A.W. Jenkinson process millions of tonnes of wood chips, sawdust, bark, green waste and timber co-products every year at processing centres and sites throughout the UK. They needed a machine that could not only handle large volumes but also be adaptable enough to provide high quality product from a wide variety of raw materials.
Robert Jenkinson, A.W. Jenkinson’s Production & Operations Manager, said: “We wanted a robust machine with great build quality that could demonstrate its versatility across a range of working environments. Molson Green recommended the Terex TEE TDS V20 and we hired it for four weeks to really put it through its paces. We need a machine that can cope with everything we throw at it and is mobile enough to be moved easily around our sites nationwide. During the hire, we tested it on green waste, tree stumps, wood and bark – anything it might encounter on a regular basis. Its performance meant we had no hesitation in buying it.”
Molson Green area sales manager Jamie Francis worked closely with the A.W. Jenkinson site managers throughout the trial period to help set up the machine and adjust the chamber and basket arrangement perfectly for each site. He said: “We found that the machine performed extremely well across the different applications. It is an extremely economical, versatile machine that is robust, easy to move from site to site and can be set up and processing very quickly.”
Molson Green head of sales Thomas McKiver welcomed the A.W. Jenkinson team to the ever growing list of customers now using Molson Green supplied Terex TEE Ecotec products.
He said: “We are really delighted to be able to count A.W. Jenkinson as our customers and I am sure the team there will be equally delighted with the quality of the machine as well as the after sales service they can expect from Molson Green.”
This is the first year Molson Green has been able to offer Terex TEE Ecotec products to customers and demand has been high. Already there are a number of customers running the different types of Terex shredders and screens with great success, according to Thomas McKiver. He said: “The Terex TBG 620 and TBG 625 high speed shredders are proving themselves in the green waste and wood processing sectors while the TDS V20 mid speed and the TDS 820 slow speed shredders have been really successful in waste wood but also work well in construction and demolition waste as well as commercial waste applications. The TTS 620 Trommel has also proven popular. The fact that the TTS 620 Trommel can take the drum from the Doppstadt 620 means it is a great, flexible choice for customers.
The Terex TEE Ecotec products are built in the UK at its large manufacturing facility in Dungannon, Northern Ireland; ensuring spare parts are readily available for these machines.
With its superb service centres and mobile service capability Molson Green has the expertise and infrastructure to provide an outstanding aftermarket package throughout the UK.
