A complete crushing and screening plant
Algeria is the largest country in Africa, located in the north of the continent. The country has experienced a steady growth in the aggregates market since the beginning of the 2000’s, with infrastructure and construction developing steadily.
In 2015 Betonex and Metso signed a contract for the design, delivery and installation of a complete crushing and screening plant to Betonex's newest quarry in El Hamra-Mansourah, in the Bordj Bou Arreridj region of Algeria to fulfill growing market demand and the company’s goal to exceed the annual production of 3 million tonnes of aggregates with production start-up end 2017.
Karim Benseba, Manager of Betonex, is the second generation to run the Algerian business after their father. Betonex, part of the Benseba Group, has a long history of working with Metso, the first joint project took place in 2008, at the company's other operation, El Mehir Agrégats. “We chose Metso for our second installation based following the technical advice and recommendations on spare parts of our first investment. Metso operates in Algeria and imports spare parts on our behalf, making it easier for us to service and maintain our facilities.”
