Burkinshaws is a family business, established in 1947 by father Reginald and then taken over by his son Bernard in 1996. The company, based in Rotherham, hire out a large range of machines including Rubber Ducks, Dumpers and Lorries.
They are specialists in all aspects of Civil Engineering and Plant Hire, as well as being suppliers of top soil, road planings, sub base and crush material.
For them, a focus on recycling is key.
Burkinshaws had seen an MB Crushing Bucket in action at their factory, on a quarry testing ground. The bucket was on a 10t excavator and was crushing limestone. To Bernard, the benefits were clear. He was impressed.
He realized a bucket would prove much more versatile and allow them to crush whenever they had free time, meaning it would prove productive. Therefore he chose to make the investment and contacted Mick Reeve of Worsley Plant.
