Hire leads to Acquire for PH Winterton and Son


Following a successful short-term hire from CRJ Services Ltd, P.H. Winterton & Son has decided to invest long-term with the purchase of a used Doppstadt shredder. The AK230 model, excellent in handling medium-sized tonnages of most waste types, was deemed a critical investment for the leading bulk sawdust and shavings provider due to the ever growing demand for its popular wood-based products. The Doppstadt high-speed shredder will be based at its recycling site in Sutton, Macclesfield, helping to shred waste wood to minus 50mm, whilst processing approximately 80 tonnes per day.

Whilst hiring the machine on site, P.H. Winterton & Son took comfort in knowing that CRJ Services Ltd had the technical expertise and the continuous availability of spare parts and service personnel to back-up the machinery that they hire and sell to the market.

Jason Moores, Site Manager at P.H. Winterton & Son commented;

“We are very happy with our decision to purchase. Firstly, CRJ were very accommodating when making a hire machine available when the timing was right for us to purchase. Secondly, the purchase has undoubtedly helped with the overall simplicity of our operations, whereby we can now work at our own pace and produce what we want, when we want. We are now producing 10mm wood fines and 40mm bio chip more efficiently than ever before!”

Gary Moores, Director at P.H. Winterton & Son commented;

“We have always had a such a strong relationship with CRJ Services Ltd. Whether we’ve required a shredder, screener or any other means of recycling equipment, they have always been on hand to help us out when we’ve been stuck at such short notice. Rob and the team offer such an honest and personable service that really goes a long way in my book, and there is no doubt we will continue to rely on their services in the foreseeable future.

Our present business strategy meant that the purchase of a used mobile shredder was deemed critical. Based on the excellent service we had received with Rob, CRJ Services Ltd obviously became our first point of call.”
