Cherry adds to recycled stabilised product capacity
By Lindsay Gale18 October 2013
Texas, USA, based Cherry’s Stabilised Materials Division has opened a new production plant with what it says is the largest production capacity of its now six plants in the Greater Houston area at 725 tonnes (800 tons) per hour.
The new plug mill plant will produce stabilised sand and road base material for companies in Fort Bend County and the Richmond Rosenberg area and is located to the southwest of Houston, an area of significant growth largely due to the Grand Parkway construction project. With its six plants, Cherry can now produce more than 225,000 tonnes (250,000 tons) of material a month.
Cherry is one of the largest recyclers in Texas and the Gulf Coast, recycling more than 1.8 million tonnes (2 million tons) of concrete and asphalt, as well as thousands of tonnes of steel per year.
