Metal Case Studies
#TeamWARD had to pull out all the stops to hit the deadline for its first shipment of scrap metal to Turkey in 2019 or face a £15,000 cost for every day of delay. With 20,000 tonnes of metal to recover, process and load onto the 200 metre-long vessel, it was a race against time for brothers Thomas and Donald Ward and their teams.
Due to a huge increase in demand for online shopping and parcel delivery which has increased at a greater rate due to the coronavirus pandemic, a nationwide parcel distribution company needed to upgrade its distribution depot. Armac Group worked closely with Ward to complete the demolition, removal and recycling of the conveyor system to make way for new equipment.
Ward has been supporting metal fabrication company Goodman Metal Works Ltd with its metal recycling for over a decade.
The project produced a recycling rate in excess of 98%, with over 5,000 tonnes of material recycled within the four month programme.
