Over a 3 day period in June, Aberdeen’s Northern Lights were forced to play second fiddle to an awesome demonstration of crushing and screening equipment. Terex Finlay held its largest ever Customer Open Event, at Jim Jamieson’s Quarry, Ellon near Aberdeen in Scotland, highlighting all of their new models for both Quarrying and Recycling applications.
With more than 300 End users and Dealers present from China, Australasia, Russia and CIS states, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas, this truly was an international affair. In total 13 different models were demonstrated and previewed in both quarry and recycling applications at Jim Jamieson’s, Ardlethen facility. The highlight of the demonstration was a single plant configuration consisting of 8 different models, featuring new Terex Finlay products introduced to date in 2013 and a number of new models that will be launched later in the year. Guests had the opportunity to view all the machines working and then inspect them close up with, with Terex Finlay staff on hand to explain the new product developments features and benefits.
A host of new recently launched models and upcoming product launches were previewed. In the main quarry demonstration the new models presented included the; NEW J-1480 jaw crusher with direct drive jaw crusher, NEW 893 heavy duty screener, NEW 684 2-deck inclined screener and NEW 694+ Optidrive inclined screener, a diesel / electric dual power alternative to the ever popular 3 way split screen. Other models that featured as part of the train included the C-1550 cone crusher, J-1175 jaw crusher and the I-130RS impact crusher. The line-up was completed with the incorporation of the Terex Finlay C-1540 cone crusher. The particular model on display featured the NEW on board side conveyor configuration that affords operators the opportunity to remove pre-screened fine material from the plant.
In the recycling demonstration area there were three models; J-1170 jaw crusher, NEW I-100RS impact crusher and the NEW Terex Finlay 883 with Spaleck screen. The J-1170 jaw crusher featured at the event was fitted with the hydraulic release chamber. The prototype of the I-100RS featured at the event is one of the prototypes that are currently testing in a range of
applications in Europe before its launch inQ4, 2013. Both these machines were demonstrated working in recycling demolition and concrete waste. Accompanying the crushers in the recycling area was the 883 heavy duty screener with Spaleck screen box that was launched at Bauma 2013. The 883 Spaleck screener was demonstrated working in a demanding top soil application with a high moisture content.
About Jim Jamieson
L-R Paul Lilley, Jim Jamieson & Nigel Irvine
Jim Jamieson has been a leading figure in the quarrying, construction, civil engineering, waste handling and recycling industries across the Grampian and Aberdeenshire regions for 40 years. The family orientated and operated business head-quartered at Ellon, Aberdeenshire has grown and diversified under the guidance of Jim Jamieson. From humble beginnings as an apprentice brick layer Jim’s entrepreneurial spirit, vision and direct workmanlike approach naturally progressed to developing his own business and today he leads a group of companies that continue to grow steadily employing over 60 people. In 2000 Jim bought a land fill site outside Aberdeen and under his control it became the first double-lined land fill site in the Aberdeenshire area. He sold this business in 2004 to focus on his construction and civil engineering businesses. This led to the acquisition of Ardlethen quarry in 2005 to service the Grampian and Aberdeenshire regions and support his construction focused businesses. Jim decided to sell the quarry in 2008 to concentrate his efforts in further developing his commercial construction business. The Ardlethen Quarry was then repurchased during 2010 and he immediately set about the process of developing the quarry and taking it to the next level. This was followed with the acquisition and development of additional local quarry locations in Whitecairns and more recently Newmacher, Aberdeenshire, to produce crusher run, quarry dust, sand, gravel and various sized aggregates ranging from 0mm to 150mm, Type 1, and railway ballast as well as tight specification aggregate products to meet client requests. Today the company’s client base boasts some of the most prominent regional players and includes local councils.
To produce such a range of products the Jim Jamieson company exclusively operates tracked mobile crushing and screening equipment across the companys’ three quarries. Jims’ first experience of mobile quarrying equipment was over 25 years ago when he rented a Finlay mobile screen from Tom McNeill at Finlay Scotland. This led to a long lasting partnership between the two companies. Today Jim operates a range of Terex Finlay jaw and cone crushers as well as heavy duty and inclined screens. To work alongside the crushing and screening equipment is a range of excavators and shovels from Liebherr, Caterpillar and Volvo. The latest editions to the fleet include a J-1480 jaw crusher, a C-1550 cone crusher and a 694+ inclined screen. These powerful high tonnage machines are key to the efficient and profitable production of the company’s three quarries and also the contract crushing and screening services that the company operates throughout Scotland. The versatility of his fleet means that Jim can also employ his crushing and screening equipment on site to support his and son James’s civil engineering activities when required.
Jims’ business motto is ‘Service Set In Stone’. This rings true with the meticulous approach that Jim adopts in every aspect in each of his businesses and with the support of his wife Moira, and son and daughters the name Jamieson will be synonymous in the construction industry for the next 40 years+.
