Lafarge Tarmac Conveyor System

How Hoverdale saved Lafarge Tarmac £44,520 in the first year with a new system and £25k per annum thereafter

The Situation

12 conveyors in the system

4 are fitted with a German cleaner

4 are fitted with an antiquated system

1 is fitted with a Hoverdale ‘P’ type from 1995

4 have no cleaners

“We are happy with the service we receive from our German supplier but the costs are higher than we had budgeted for.”
