Short cycle time plus outstanding product quality: key arguments for commissioning a new plant in …

Quadra, 74130 Contamine-sur-Arve, France

… England The Maen Karne Group is made up of Maen Karne Aggregates Ltd and Maen Karne Concrete Products (formerly Western Blocks Ltd). Recently acquired by the GRS Group, the Maen Karne Group has displayed sustained growth since its founding and is now one of the leading renowned suppliers to the precast industry in the southwest of the UK. The Maen Karne Group is active in several fields: supply of aggregates, manufacture of ready-mix and precast concrete, manufacture of concrete products (mainly blocks and pavers) and the supply of waste management solutions. Divided into four sites and equipped with two plants for the manufacture of concrete blocks, Maen Karne placed an order with Quadra for the upgrading of the existing production line and commissioning of a “high performance” block making machine at their Melbur site, located in the county of Cornwall. High production capacity, consistent and optimum quality in terms of height, compaction, durability and dimensions, and ease of maintenance - these were the main requirements for the new plant. The wealth of experience and proven skills of Quadra have finally convinced the Maen Karne Group, which has chosen to rely on the French equipment and know-how.
