Lovatt Brothers Purchase Louritex PHGP 500T Shear from Recycle Direct limited

Date: 11th September 2019 | By: Recycle Direct

Lovatt Brothers have purchased a new Louritex 500-tonne mobile shear from Recycle Direct Limited.

Lovatt Brothers are a family run business based in Montgomery, Powys, Wales with over 40 years of experience in scrap metal recycling and skip hire. The company decided they needed to upgrade their existing Louritex 420 Shear baler

The quality and efficiency of their current Louritex shear has made it an easy decision to continue with the Louritex brand

Recycle Direct are the sole UK agent for Louritex LDA

Louritex manufacture portable, static and mobile shears ranging from 250 to 1250 tonnes, along with car balers, engine crushers and a variety of other metal processing machines.

“It’s fantastic to see Lovatt Brothers continue to stay with the brand they know, and believe in the lifespan and reliability of Louritex. Lovatt Brothers are a small family-run operation so they need a machine that will provide ongoing reliability. I’m more than confident the PHGP will be just as good and even better than their existing Louritex 420 machine”
