Sjöblom first to use EcomecaPublished 16/4 at 16:01
Sjöblom in Kaivin Oy, in western Finland, is a 50 year old family run civil engineering and demolition contractor. With its work force of around 50, and a fleet of approximately 100 pieces of equipment, the company also recycles materials for other companies. It was also the very first customer for Ecomeca’s bucket crusher attachment.
The first Ecomeca unit was acquired in 2012 for crushing demolition waste, with the unit still in use today. After more than five years hard work Sjöblom has recently renovated and upgraded the unit to meet today’s requirements.
Sjöblom managing director, Matts Sjöblom, is still extremely happy with the unit’s crushing power, versatility and high capacity. The unit is used at its own facility and on-situ at other demolition sites. At its own site, the unit is used in conjunction with an 8m high conveyer belt and magnet. Sjöblom believes the unit to be capable of even higher production rates than mobile crushers.
When Sjöblom purchased its unit, Ecomeca had just been founded, but it was noted that there was a great deal of experience in screening and crushing at the company. The head office, R&D and other main operations are still located in Finland, but today production is undertaken in Germany. The product range now comprises of five different attachment type crushing buckets suitable for excavators for the 18t – 50t range. Mainly designed for the crushing of demolition waste, they have also proven their worth crushing many other materials including bricks, sand stone and asphalt.
