Mick George makes the cut with TANA Shark

Mick George Limited is one of the leading suppliers to the construction industry in East Anglia and the East Midlands, specialising in providing bulk excavation and earthmoving services, aggregate supply and waste management services. With quarries, landfill sites and waste transfer stations spread across the region it is easy to see how much Mick George Limited has grown since operating with a single tipper truck in 1978. The company’s commercial fleet size has now grown to be in excess of 180 HGV vehicles and Michael George (Operations Director) believes that all this success has been put down to their “in-depth industry knowledge and experience, plus an unswerving commitment to providing reliable and professional services.”

This year Michael identified the need for a waste shredding application that would predominantly be used on green waste, tree roots and stumps for composting and volume reduction for their waste facility at Rushton. As well as a solution for green waste, Michael went on to say “We also wanted the option of shredding tyres for drainage, waste for RDF, and wood products for Biomass.”  With particular attention to the size of the products being a key factor to their decision, Mick George Ltd went about identifying a shredder that was versatile enough to handle the vast array of different solutions that they required.

David Banks of Warwick Ward (TANA UK Dealer) played a key role in demonstrating the TANA Shark’s capabilities. David said “When Michael first approached me it was obvious that the TANA Shark 440DT was the shredder he was looking for.” Not only did this shredder help achieve the processing needs he was looking for on different waste products, but by being so simple to adjust particle sizes, and move between waste groups, ensured that he was able to utilise the machine quickly and efficiently without any long downtime, ensuring maximum return from his investment. “After a successful demonstration we were able to show just how versatile the 440DT is and how the TANA Shark can be used throughout the business and not have a limited capability like our competition.”

Mick George Ltd now operate their TANA Shark 440DT at their Rushton site and Michael is extremely happy with the purchase, with TANA not just providing unrivalled performance but class leading accessibility and fuel consumption. “We decided on TANA over all the competition as we can achieve so much more with it. By being able to switch product sizes so quickly and on so many different waste groups was fundamental in our decision making.”
