Global Mining Review,

In June, Finnish processing technology company ALLU demonstrated the capabilities of its range of Transformers through its new UK distributor, Blue Machinery Group company, Murray Plant at Hillhead.

Hillhead is the world’s largest ‘live-action’ quarrying show and was held from the 26 - 28 June in Buxton, Derbyshire (UK). As such, ALLU used the show to demonstrate the benefits of the Transformer series, which has proved to be ideal for quarrying, surface mining and aggregate production.

Part of the Blue Machinery Group of companies, Murray Plant also displayed other key product ranges, including the world-renowned Rammer hydraulic breakers and demolition attachments.

The ideal solution for quarrying and aggregates

The ALLU Transformer Series was reportedly the main focus of Murray Plant’s ALLU offering at Hillhead. This comprises of an excavator/ loader/ tractor mounted processing bucket which screens, pulverises, aerates, blends, mixes, separates, even crushes, feeds and loads materials. This results in the feed material being effectively transformed into highly valuable products, making any business involved in waste and recycling more efficient, and more profitable.

Catering for applications of all sizes, and capable of processing any material that can be screened and sorted, the ALLU Transformer Series comprises of the compact DL & D Series as well as the truly massive M and G Series. All are designed to transform the way in which materials handling and processing businesses are able to improve their efficiency and profitability. The latter have proved themselves on truly massive quarrying and surface mining applications throughout the world, being designed for use by excavators up to 300 t.

Positive reception

Earlier this year, Blue Machinery Ltd announced the acquisition of Rammer’s UK dealer, Murray Plant Ltd. As a key part of the Blue Group, this has led to the company now being able to supply its customers with a first class range of products. 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.

ALLU’s UK Distributor Manager, Carlos Guallart, commented: “The opportunity to work alongside a company of Blue’s stature, as well as continue our relationship with Murray Plant which has dominated the UK breaker market for many years, is a fantastic opportunity.”

“We are now working with all parties to ensure that ALLU customers throughout the UK are able to benefit from dealing with such respected organisations. As the recent Hillhead exhibition showed, the combination of ALLU equipment and Murray Plant’s expertise has been warmly received by UK customers.”

“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 now been brought together,” said 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.”

President of ALLU, Ola Ulmala, commented: “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.”
