Notts firms sign JV aimed at quarrying industry

Nottinghamshire bulk materials handling solutions company Martin Engineering has formed a joint venture with fellow county firm Wright Engineering.

The firms say the partnership between the two Nottinghamshire-based businesses will mean that the region’s quarry operators and materials processing companies have greater access to a variety of world-class products. The agreement will initially cover Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire.

Martin Engineering is a US company with its UK headquarters in Mansfield. It supplies components such as conveyor belt cleaners, air cannons and dust control products to achieve cleaner, safer, more efficient production.

Worksop-based Wright Engineering designs, fabricates and installs complex engineering solutions along with providing maintenance services and aftermarket spares such as conveyor rollers and power transmissions solutions for essential industries such as quarrying and building materials, but also power, water, recycling, energy-from-waste and rail transport.

Joshua Jepson, sales director of Wright Engineering, said: “Our new partnership with Martin Engineering gives us access to a range of market-leading products that will further enhance the industrial processing facilities we design, build and maintain for our clients. We’re looking forward to working together with Martin to maintain the highest possible standards of efficiency and productivity for materials producers throughout the East Midlands.”

Aaron Bartram, general manager for Martin Engineering UK, said: “Having recently worked with Wright Engineering on a state-of-the-art recycling plant they designed, manufactured and installed in West Yorkshire, we’re now delighted to formalise our relationship with this new agreement.

“Wright Engineering are a highly skilled team and exactly the right partner to be installing and maintaining our products.

“As both companies are based in the heart of a region well-known for quarrying and the production of essential construction materials, we’re confident our partnership will add value to producers in the East Midlands.
