New business sees ‘big opportunity’ on demolition sites

By Steve Ducker09 August 2021

United Kingdom-based start-up Frater Urban Quarry – which specialises in processing and supplying raw material from demolition sites – has acquired a Mercedes-Benz tipper for its business in the south-west of England.

The Arocs eight-wheeler was supplied by City West Commercials, the dedicated Mercedes-Benz Trucks Dealer for the area.

Frater Urban Quarry was launched to provide premium aggregate products to both the construction industry and homeowners working on do-it-yourself projects.

The aggregates are produced from recycled demolition waste and are said to be significantly more cost-effective because of this.

Frater’s new Arocs employs a 10.7-litre in-line six-cylinder engine producing 290 kW (394 hp).

The truck collects waste from sites within a 48 km (30-mile radius) of the city of Bristol, and transports it to Frater’s headquarters for processing in its crushing and screening plant. It also delivers bulk loads of ready-to-use aggregates to customers in and around the city.

It is also the first Mercedes-Benz to be operated by any part of the Wring Group of companies, which, in addition to demolition, dismantling, decontamination and remediation works and scaffolding, provides asbestos removal, waste management, and haulage and plant hire services.

“We are convinced there’s a big opportunity to grow the Frater Urban Quarry business,” said plant and logistics manager Simon Holdom.

“The home improvement sector is booming.”
