Two Tesab crushers for W&M Thompson Quarries

North of England quarrying company benefits from Tesab 623CT impact crusher productivity

FINLAY Plant Northern have supplied two Tesab 623CT impact crushers to W&M Thompson Quarries in the north of England, bringing enhanced versatility and productivity to two of their sites.

The machines are being used to process construction aggregates at the company’s Carboniferous limestone quarry in Cumbria, as well roadstone aggregates and agricultural lime at their magnesium limestone site in Durham.

In Cumbria, W&M Thompson Quarries introduced the new Tesab machine to replace an older, larger impact crusher, which could not produce end products to a small enough grade.

The 623CT offers a more precise approach to the production of smaller, single-sized aggregates. It is currently producing granular sub-base and material screened to 20mm and 10mm single sizes for concrete plant and construction industry use.

At the company’s Durham site, magnesium limestone is processed for roadstone aggregates and agricultural lime, the latter being sold to farmers across North Yorkshire, Durham, Northumberland, Cumbria and Scotland, as well as being exported to Europe.

Charlie Nairn, a director of Finlay Plant Northern, said: ‘We have a long-standing relationship with Thompsons, and they have hired machines from us for a good number of years. The Tesab 623CT impact crushers offer them the best and most economical way of producing the materials that they require for their customers.’

Eddie Collins, W&M Thompson Quarries’ operations manager at both the Durham and Cumbria sites, added: ‘We have dealt with Finlay Plant Northern for more than 20 years and have always received good service. If we ever have a breakdown their engineers are here the same day or next day.’
