An Ag-mac V450 Waste Baler is saving us over £1,000 a month!
Welch Mill Carpets is a family-owned business established for over 50 years and run by Brian Adler with his sons Nick and Daniel. The business employs 14 people and sells carpets, laminates, vinyl and wood floors from a 30,000 sqft warehouse in Leigh, Lancashire. Welch Mill Carpets supply flooring to all corners of the UK, direct to both commercial and domestic end users, with the vast majority of their sales coming from recommendation by satisfied customers.
18 months ago the business was spending over £2,000 per month emptying containers full of loose carpet waste trimmings, leftovers from the fitting process. “The way the waste was being handled was time and labour intensive and very inefficient,” says Brian. “When I saw a baler at a Yorkshire trade show I thought: ‘this might be the solution!’
“We searched the internet for a machine and found Agritel. Their V450 was at least £2,000 cheaper than similar models so we contacted them and bought one. We now bale all our carpet trimmings and produce around 6 bales a month. They are easy to move and store before collection by our recycler. It still costs us to have the bales removed but it’s less than half the amount it used to be, so I suppose the baler paid for itself within six months.“
Brian concludes: “This is the best piece of equipment I have bought in 50 years, I can’t think of any negatives to it. It was absolutely value for money - I’d definitely recommend it!”
There is now free delivery for machines until Christmas Eve!!*
