50th Doppstadt Trommel

Market-leading mobile recycling equipment supplier CRJ Services is proud to announce the purchase and arrival of its 50th Doppstadt trommel screener. The SM 620 model joins the ever-expanding hire fleet operating from Knutsford, Cheshire, which now consists of over 80 units.

Since its formation back in 1999, CRJ has grown to become the undisputed solution for short, mid and long-term material processing requirements across the UK; holding a range of slow and high speed shredders, drum screens, star screens, picking stations, mobile magnets and density separators, all available to hire for a variety of recycling applications.

Originally starting out solely focusing on green waste recycling contracts for councils in Cheshire, an early opportunity was identified to grow the business further with the lease of its existing machinery across the country; including its initial set of high-speed AK430 shredders. The hire fleet grew rapidly from here on, with CRJ soon expanding to offer other means of materials processing equipment, including screeners and picking stations; notably acquiring its first Doppstadt 518 trommel from Doppstadt UK back in 2004.

Now a renowned nationwide brand with a growing presence in Ireland, CRJ has demonstrated its ongoing commitment to reaching their main goal of continuing to become a consistent and recognized force within the UK and Ireland recycling industry by teaming up and merging with leading equipment sales organisation, Matpro Machinery. The merge has enabled CRJ and Matpro to create one of the largest machinery hire and sales firms in the country.

CRJ/Matpro currently has 37 employees spread across its offices in Knutsford, Glasgow and Belfast, who are now both well equipped to respond better to market needs through the unification of resources. As a supplier and end user, they understand that aftersales is an integral part of the business and with that in mind they have 17 trained engineers, fully equipped service vans and a parts stock holding of over £1 million.

Robert Symons, Director at CRJ Services Holdings Ltd commented;

“Service Excellence is the underlying factor behind our success and longevity. This is what I believe continues to differentiate us in the marketplace. For the past 18 years, we have been entirely focused on not only supplying the highest quality machines at good rates, but also offering a personable, honest and efficient service that adds value to our customers.”

At CRJ we understand the needs of our customers, all the way from selecting the correct machine for the job to keeping one’s operations running. We value having the most knowledgeable and passionate employees in the market who can provide the best advice from the outset, and unlike many of our competitors, we are equipped to tackle any customer issues within 24 hours, all thanks to our superb range of fully kitted-out service vans and dedicated team of experienced service engineers.

The 50th purchase milestone really shows how far we’ve come as an organisation, and without the superb group of people, family-type spirit and sense of togetherness we have here at CRJ, this wouldn’t have been possible, so it’s a major credit to everyone involved”
