Ward chooses Liebherr handlers

Ward, a metal and waste recycling specialist based in Derbyshire, has invested £1.25 million in four new material handlers from global construction machinery manufacturer, Liebherr. 

The Liebherr LH40 M handlers will move metal, wood, plastic and general waste around Ward’s site. One machine features a grab, magnet and snipper attachment, and will aid on-site services for demolition and construction projects. Donald Ward, Commercial Manager at Ward, highlighted the Liebherr LH40’s energy recovery system, which will lower overall fuel consumption by 30%.

Ordered at the end of 2018, Ward has taken delivery of the four material handlers throughout the year and the final one was delivered on site at Ilkeston last month to support the infrastructure improvements and installation of a Metso pre-shredder. Ward has now increased its processing capability and recycles over 500,000 tonnes of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal of all grades for sale within the UK and to export overseas, annually.
