Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company has purchased a whole new pallet shredder from UNTHA UK, to boost the team’s production of materials to the biomass industry.
Established in 1919, BBMC C the social enterprise of charity Royal British Legion Industries –? has long strived to support the lives of ex-service personnel, speculate the years have passed the Aylesford-based company proceeded to go on have employment opportunities to non-veterans including people with disabilities as well as those underemployed. A lot more than 100 such individuals staff the 5m turnover factory* the place where a new UNTHA LR1400 has been commissioned.
Processing as many as 15 tonnes of waste timber weekly, the one shaft shredder is top-loaded via a forklift before putting together a homogenous 50mm fraction. An overband magnet extracts any metals for reinsertion in to the recycling stream, while using the resulting product supplied to Jenkinsons with the biomass market.
But know-how is satisfying more than solely an environmental agenda.? Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company once was paying as many as 1,000 a week to dispose of its timber waste. These days, the process doesn’t just negate this financial liability C it helps the social enterprise generate approximately 250 each week from the sale within the biomass resource.
“With a facility the dimensions of five football pitches, we wanted a shredder which had been ‘tough enough’ to do the job,” comments operations manager David Church. “We had previously used a second-hand machine coming from a different manufacturer, but unreliability and repeated breakdowns were placing a force on our workflow. You will find there’s significant demand for our output material so we just couldn’t guarantee to process the amount how the end user sought.
“We therefore began our general market trends and UNTHA separated itself clearly as an industry leader. A meeting and among UNTHA’s wood shredding experts C in addition to a visit to begin to see the LR1400 actually in operation C convinced us this is the unit for individuals.”
“As a not-for-profit enterprise, our entire surplus is reinvested into the company to provide greater the possiblility to ex-service personnel and individuals with disabilities.
“So, considering that the LR1400 aids us produce a huge reduction in cost, UNTHA can proudly state coming up with a real difference to these peoples’ lives.”
Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company has purchased the LR1400 outright. Basic operator training has become presented to guarantee the optimum running condition within the machine, but regular servicing and maintenance might be given by UNTHA UK’s own engineers.
