Fomer Blue Machinery Scotland man has launched a new company called Advanced Material Processing (AMP).

Based in Stirling, the company offers short- and long-term hire and contracting services for materials processing plant and equipment for the demolition, recycling, quarrying and allied industries. The fleet includes mobile crushers, screeners and shredders, from brands such as Powerscreen and Doppstadt.

AMP said it already has a number of machines out on site. Two Powerscreen PT 400 jaw crushers were the first machines purchased, including a pre-screen model. Both mobile crushing plants went straight to work – one on a contract crushing job and the other on various hires with demolition contractors.

The crushers were very quickly followed with the addition of a Powerscreen Chieftain 2100X mobile screening plant, which is on a long term hire screening and stockpiling sand and gravel. The environmental side of the business is also up and running, with a Doppstadt SM 620 trommel initially joining AMP’s fleet and immediately going out on long-term hire processing green waste and biomass.

All the machines in AMP’s fleet have been purchased from Blue Machinery Scotland, with a plan to purchase further machines in the next three months including a slow- and high-speed shredder. Ultimately, says AMP, the objective is to have a 25-strong fleet of crushers, screeners, shredders and trommels to service customers throughout Scotland.

Kieran O’ Kane, who has 30 years’ experience of the industry, said: “Having worked with Blue Machinery Scotland for so long, it gave me a great understanding of the industry in Scotland and what quarry, site and recycling managers need from their machines from a hire and contracting perspective.

“We’ve quickly developed a strong team, with trained and experienced field service engineers and support personnel already in place to provide the best possible engineering and administrative back-up.”
