Blue Scotland expand into Concrete Batching Plants

News Featured

Blue Machinery (Scotland) Ltd are delighted to announce that they are now the authorised distributors for the full range of SEMIX concrete batching solutions across Scotland and the North East of England.

On the back of 25 very successful years in the aggregates business, this was a natural progression to provide customers with concrete batching plants from a world class manufacturer in SEMIX. Founded in 1987 SEMIX manufactures top-level concrete plants and concrete mixers, having exported more than 800 concrete batching plants to over 50 countries across the globe.

Following the new partnership, Blue Scotland will be able to supply the full range which includes mobile, modular, compact and static solutions ranging from 30-250m³ per hour.

Austin Carey, Managing Director at Blue Scotland comments: “After careful due diligence and consideration, we are delighted to announce that we have entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with SEMIX, a market-leading manufacturer of concrete batching plants.

Our Sales Director, Dermot Donaghy and I have dedicated significant time to thoroughly assessing the market in search of the best OEM partner to serve our customers in Scotland and North East England. SEMIX, a family business based in Ankara, Turkey, emerged as the ideal choice. They specialise in manufacturing a comprehensive range of mobile and bespoke stationary small to large plants.

Dermot will be leading the sales efforts directly to our customers, with support from our engineering and service department based in Stirling.

We would like to extend our gratitude to SEMIX for selecting Blue Machinery (Scotland) Ltd as their partner and look forward to receiving feedback from our customers at Scotplant, where we will be exhibiting the 60m3 plant on the stand.”

Blue Scotland have hit the ground running with the first batching plant recently being installed at A&L McCrae’s site at Clachan Quarry, with another five plants on order throughout their territory.

Calum McCrae, Director at A&L McCrae comments: “SEMIX provide the right blend of quality and value. We have a very strong working relationship with Blue Scotland from the crushing and screening side of the business, so we were keen to look at the SEMIX concrete batching plants once we heard that they would be taking on the dealership.

Our SEMIX plant has been up and running for some time now and we are really impressed with how user friendly it is. It’s very easy to service, with an easy-to-use operating system and control panel. If we ever have any issues with the plant the team from SEMIX in Turkey can dial into the plant within 60 seconds and so far, the only issues that we’ve had is operator error on our side. The plant itself has never let us down since the moment it arrived.”

Blue Scotland look forward to showcasing the SEMIX 60 S4 mobile batching plant on our stand at Scotplant, taking place on 26th and 27th April 2024.

Blue Machinery Scotland offer a localised support service with OEM trained engineers and spare parts availability from our Blue Spares facility based in Stirling.
