BlueMAC ‘wastes’ no time in making an impact


BlueMAC Manufacturing, an innovative new company which came about as a result of a collaboration between industry experts from Blue Group and Dmac Engineering, has hit the ground running.

In just six months, the firm has already invoiced over £3 million worth of business, with senior figures admitting to being “overwhelmed” by the initial response from customers.
BlueMAC specialise in the design and manufacture of cutting edge recycling systems for the global waste recycling industries.
The aim is to offer inventive modular products robustly manufactured at a cost effective price.
BlueMAC’s turnkey in-house manufacturing process ensures total control of cost, design, components, engineering, quality and after-sales product support, overseeing each project from the first enquiry all the way through to installation and commissioning.
Their components list includes feeders, conveyors, trommels, picking stations, flip flow screens, ballistic separators and ferrous/non-ferrous removal systems – all of which feature robust design and manufacture to ensure a long and productive working life. Additionally, these modular components, combined with Blue Group’s other leading technologies available through OEM’s such as Doppstadt for shredders and GK air classifiers form the basis for virtually any reclamation task, providing BlueMAC with the ability to turnkey recycling plant and equipment solutions economically, effectively and efficiently.
BlueMAC products are already proving to be successful on a Global level with installations from as far afield as Asia to London and throughout the UK where they are working with everyone from major players in the industry to start-up firms.
Austin Carey, Blue Scotland’s managing director, is thrilled with the impact BlueMAC has made in such a short period of time.
“We’ve been overwhelmed with the initial response from customers,” he said. “I’m really enthusiastic about the future and the ability to service our clients with more innovative and cost effective solutions. BlueMAC will help improve efficiency and our customers will benefit greatly from our complete control over quality, design, timescales and cost.”
One significant aspect is that they have the ability to be more competitive by producing systems for a wide range of customers.
Start-up firms aren’t priced out of the market as the recycling systems are bespoke and tailored to the specific needs of each firm.
As a result, they can be designed for everyone from large, multi-national waste management companies to small scale operators looking for an entry level plant.
The strapline for BlueMAC is “waste nothing” and so far the blossoming company is more than living up to this.
One recycling company which has taken delivery of a bespoke BlueMAC MRF is Shorts Group. Managing Director Gary Short said, “I visited the BlueMAC manufacturing facility to see some of the new plant during construction. I was thoroughly impressed by the level of design and new ideas. During the visit, my operators and managers had the opportunity to further discuss the design and possible implementation of better access points for maintenance and servicing.”
