Blue Scotland Hold Successful Open Day


Blue Scotland recently held a highly successful Open Day in association with Central Demolition with over 100 visitors attending to see what Blue Scotland had to offer.

The day started at Blue Scotland’s new 3.5 acre facility where a huge array of static equipment was on display from Blue’s range of suppliers including Doppstadt, Powerscreen and EvoQuip. Also on show was the spare parts facility, service department and refurbishment bays as well as their state-of-the-art offices.

Having enjoyed a bite to eat and a coffee, the visitors were all transferred by bus to Central Demolition at Bonnybridge for the ‘live’ demonstrations. Central Demolition is a long-standing customer of Blue Scotland, in fact the

company bought both the very first machine from Austin Carey when Blue Scotland was initially set up, and the 1000th machine in 2015. Here the tour started with each piece of machinery described by a specialist as it worked through a process starting with a Doppstadt 3060 F type processing wood waste being loaded by a Fuchs MHL 331. This was followed by more action in the EvoQuip area with a Bison 120 and a Colt 800 being put through their paces, with the specialist describing the process and the relevant features of each machine as the tour proceeded.

In the next area, a Powerscreen Premiertrak 400 and a Chieftain 2100X were busy processing C&D waste and were ably assisted by a brand new Cobra 230 Impactor which fed the BlueMAC plant, with any material being further reduced by a Powerscreen 1000 Maxtrak. All material was then fed to the wash plant and finally stockpiled by a Chieftain 1400 screen.

In the waste sorting area visitors were treated with the sight of a Fuchs MHL 331 and MHL 340 who demonstrated their agility as they handled and sorted tonnes of material for processing.

Overall the event was a total success with visitors coming from as far away as Wick to watch the equipment in a working environment.

Austin Carey – MD – Blue Scotland, commented, “It was a very successful event and a great opportunity to show our visitors the machines in action and the support we provide. People took time out of their busy schedules to attend and on behalf of the Blue team I would like to thank them for their time. Also, a big thank you to Ross Craig and the Central Demolition team who gave us their incredible support and the provision of their site for the demonstrations.”
