Finlay Group is moving into new markets within the port and rail sectors after securing the dealership for Trackstack in England and Wales.
Finlay Group is now marketing the Trackstack range of bulk handling products, which include tracked stockpilers, loaders, unloaders, and tracked radial stockpilers purpose-built for port and train loading environments.
Capable of delivering significant economic and environmental incentives, Trackstack products are constructed to a ‘built to last’ ethos, with a strong emphasis on quality.
Manufactured at a five-acre facility in Omagh, Trackstack is part of the world-renowned Tesab Group, and the machinery has been used in ports and rail freight environments around the globe.
The stockpilers offer the ability to introduce a massive stockpiling capability on site, with the machinery engineered to provide a high torque, fuel efficient process, capable of powering through material to deliver exceptional production rates.
By creating a large stockpile height, the need for a shovel and labour to constantly move processed material from a crusher or screener to storage areas is eliminated.
Furthermore, when joined-up to a crusher or screener the machinery is operated through the remit of one operator, for a joined-up approach that saves double handing, wear and tear and fuel costs.
For the port and rail industries, a range of loaders and unloaders are available, which cater for containers, vessels, barges and trains – and can also be used for stockpiling.
Dave Statham, a director of Finlay Group said: “The sheer price of fuel in operating a shovel to move material, and labour costs, makes a compelling case for the introduction of Trackstack bulk handling systems in the port and train loading industry.
“Ultimately they reduce degradation, enhance safety and lower costs.
“The machinery also handles a broad range of material, including iron ore and coal, and they are versatile, highly mobile and quick to set-up.
“This type of machinery is slowly revolutionising the materials handling industry, and with the Trackstack dealership now in place we can offer a complete package that meets the evolving needs of the material processing sector.”
As well as being available to buy, the Trackstack products can be introduced on to site through Finlay Hire.
A fast replacement parts service is also available from Midlands-based Sure Equipment Spares (SES).
Leon Connolly, of Tesab’s Export and Sales Distribution division, is overseeing the introduction of Trackstack into Britain.
He said: “Trackstack offers an innovative solution for the rail and port sectors and the quality of the products, combined with Finlay Group’s sales, technical support and after-sales service, makes for a good partnership.
“These machines have made a positive impact in installations around the globe.
“Each product is designed to meet the needs of our customers and ultimately save them money.”
