How To Reduce Your Transport Costs

As we are aware, increases in prices across all industries are affecting us in the current climate, including the rise in fuel prices. The recycling industry is no stranger to high fuel costs and their impact on the industry. In this blog, we will discuss how you can keep your transport costs low and why it’s important to keep your costs low overall.    Why is it important?  We all know that keeping our costs low is an important part of the business. Keeping transport costs to a minimum allows other areas of the business to thrive. Although we cannot control the rising costs of fuel, which can greatly affect the cost of transportation, we can use certain methods and processes that allow us to add weight and reduce the number of trips necessary to deliver our materials. With inflation due to rise from 2% to 6%, it is more important now than ever to try and keep costs as low as possible.    Balers  A baler is a great way to keep your transport costs low. Balers compact loose metal into blocks which can be easily stacked and transported. The compaction achieved by our balers means more weight per load, fewer trips and less fuel. As an added benefit, saving fuel also reduces your carbon emissions! JMC Recycling has a range of new and used balers available to suit all operations see *here* for a range of our top quality balers at best possible prices. Container Tilters  Container tilters (or loaders) are another great way to fit a larger quantity of materials into a shipping container. By tipping to either 45 or 90 degrees depending on the option you choose, a container tilter allows [...]

JMC Recycling Systems Ltd – proud of our 150-year history

Next year will mark JMC’s 20th in business. But the McIntyre name, with which we still brand our machines, first appeared in scrap metal in 1872 when Irishman John McIntyre opened J.McIntyre Scrap in the shadow of Nottingham Castle.  John McIntyre was known as ‘Honest John’. His honesty made him popular as a scrap dealer all those years ago and honesty remains one of our core values today.  Some of the best metal at that time was wrought iron from horseshoes which was manually processed with large hammers – we like to think that we have come up with a few better ways over the last 150 years! When John McIntyre died at the end of the First World War, the business was sold, and the job of manager offered to Edward 'Ted' Pownall.  He later bought the company and used to boast that he earned back its purchase cost within his first few weeks of operation.  The business of J.McIntyre continued to flourish,  with Ted Pownall's two sons coming into the operation in the 1950's.  Keen innovators, they kept abreast of equipment trends and installed one of the first fragmentisers in the UK at the company’s then new site in Dunkirk. The need for quality machinery to process the increasing amount of metal coming into the business, and the passion of Ted’s son Michael for better and faster scrap processing, prompted McIntyre’s to set up a company specifically dedicated to producing equipment for the recycling industry.  J.McIntyre Machinery Ltd was born, and over the years designed, developed and manufactured a complete range of equipment from shears and balers, to cable recyclers, grabs, drum crushers, can sorters, furnaces, casting machines, and aluminium dross processing equipment.  [...]

A-Ward win court battle over sale of Container Tilters in the UK

After an extremely long legal battle,  A-Ward have won their case regarding patent infringement by Fabcon on their range of container tilters.  This means that Fabcon are not allowed to sell their tilter in the UK by law.  A-Ward tilters are a fully patented product and we believe them to be the best in the business.  Their revolutionary tilting loaders for example, allow you to fill up every last inch of your shipping containers - and do it fast so you'll save time and money.   Further details regarding the case are given in the link below.  Should you need any additional details on  container loaders and unloaders or have concerns regarding the recent court decision then please do not hesitate to contact us.   To whom it may concern, IMPORTANT NOTICE: The High Court of England and Wales has ruled that the Fabcon container tilter infringes A Ward’s European Patent (UK) 2 021 268 and that sale of the tilter in England and Wales is prohibited by law. Fabcon Engineering has been restrained, whether acting by itself, its servants or agents, from disposing of, or offering to dispose of such container tilting devices in England and Wales. The order of the Honourable Judge Melissa Clarke is enclosed, which includes the following warning notice: ANY OTHER PERSON WHO KNOWS OF THIS ORDER AND DOES ANYTHING WHICH HELPS OR PERMITS THE DEFENDANT TO BREACH THE TERMS OF THIS ORDER MAY ALSO BE HELD TO BE IN CONTEMPT OF COURT AND MAY BE IMPRISONED, FINED OR HAVE THEIR ASSETS SEIZED. For further details, please find a link to the Honourable Judge Melissa Clarke’s Judgment on 29 July 2021:
