CRJ has come a long way since our first hire of a Doppstadt AK430, to Manchester Waste, back in 2002. Millions of tonnes of waste processing later, and CRJ is celebrating adding the 100th active machine to our hire fleet.
The CRJ hire fleet came into existence 20 years ago when our primary business was processing green waste for local authorities. We began hiring out our processing machinery during the green waste off season, marking the beginning of the CRJ hire fleet. As we won more green waste processing contracts, the fleet of machinery grew to a size where the hiring out of the machinery was becoming more popular and overtook the green waste processing as our main business activity.
CRJ was in the unique position of being both a machine operator and supplier. This experience has been key in the development of our supporting services and infrastructure, as we have been able to tailor our services to meet the needs of our clients, knowing first-hand the challenges they face. As a result, our back-up support, technical know-how, and understanding of the waste and recycling industries are all aspects of the business which have scaled up in line with the number of machines in the fleet.
As the hire fleet increased, CRJ began to introduce different types of machines with the aim of being able to supply waste management companies with any mobile processing machinery they may require. The current hire fleet is now home to trommel and deck screeners, slow- and high-speed shredders, picking stations, eddy current separators, density separators, water baths and conveyors.
“The success of the hire business has come about by combining quality machinery with an exceptional back up support service that focuses on ensuring our customers operations run smoothly with minimal downtime. The service CRJ provide, coupled with the knowledge of our sales and technical team, has meant we have now established ourselves as the market leader in the supply of waste management and recycling machinery solutions.”
