Market-leading mobile recycling equipment supplier CRJ Services have announced the purchase and arrival of their 50th Doppstadt trommel screener. The SM 620 model joined the ever-expanding hire fleet operating from Knutsford, Cheshire, which now consists of over 80 units.

Since their formation back in 1999, CRJ has grown to become a solution for short, mid and long-term material processing requirements across the UK; holding a range of slow and high speed shredders, drum screens, star screens, picking stations, mobile magnets and density separators – all available to hire for a variety of recycling applications.

Originally starting out solely focusing on green waste recycling contracts for councils in Cheshire, an early opportunity was identified to grow the business further with the lease of existing machinery across the country – including the initial set of high-speed AK430 shredders.

The hire fleet has grown rapidly, with CRJ expanding to offer other means of materials processing equipment, including screeners and picking stations; notably acquiring its first Doppstadt 518 trommel from Doppstadt UK back in 2004.

Now a nationwide brand with a growing presence in Ireland, CRJ have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to reaching their main goal of continuing to become a consistent and recognized force within the UK and Ireland recycling industry by teaming up and merging with leading equipment sales organisation, Matpro Machinery. The merger has enabled CRJ and Matpro to create one of the largest machinery hire and sales firms in the country.

CRJ/Matpro currently have 37 employees spread across their offices in Knutsford, Glasgow, and Belfast, and they are well equipped to respond to market needs through a unification of resources. As a supplier and end user, they understand aftersales is an integral part of their business, and with that in mind they have 17 trained engineers, fully equipped service vans, and a parts stock holding of over £1 million.    

Robert Symons, Director at CRJ Services Holdings Ltd, commented: “Service excellence is the underlying factor behind our success and longevity. This is what I believe continues to differentiate us in the marketplace.

“For the past 18 years, we have been entirely focused on not only supplying the highest quality machines at good rates, but also offering a personable, honest and efficient service that adds value to our customers.”

“At CRJ we understand the needs of our customers, all the way from selecting the correct machine for the job to keeping one’s operations running.

“We value having the most knowledgeable and passionate employees in the market, who can provide the best advice from the outset.

“The 50th purchase milestone shows how far we’ve come as an organisation, and without the superb group of people, family-type spirit, and sense of togetherness we have here at CRJ, this wouldn’t have been possible.”
