To increase the production of manufactured sand, Kyung Boo invested in Metso equipment. “The reason I chose Metso was because of the history of the company. Metso handles hard rocks well,” explains Mr. Park. “After extensive research and analysis, I decided to purchase Metso equipment, which is known for a low failure rate. Once I started running the machine, I witnessed the performance in action.”
Metso’s aggregates solutions are available in Korea through HAEIN Corporation, the country’s largest dealer of premium construction and civil engineering equipment and the authorized dealer of Metso’s product range since 2012. “To stand out from the competition, we have worked hard over the past few years to provide our customers with a one-stop solution. Partnering with Metso enabled us to provide the best solutions also for crushing, which is one of the most critical tasks for our customers,” explains Mr. S.W. Choi, Managing Director of HAEIN Corporation.
Kyung Boo brought in the first Metso machines, 2 x B9100SE and 1 x HP300, 3 years ago , and today it has numerous Metso systems including a Nordberg® C160™ jaw crusher, a Nordberg® GP500S™ cone crusher, Nordberg® HP6™ cone crushers, and Metso TS5.3™ screens. For Mr. Park, the size of the equipment is a benefit. Mr. Choi has noticed the same at HAEIN: “After customers use Metso machines, they are impressed by two things: the productivity and product quality compared to the amount of production. Customers express their appreciation for the very competitive product quality, which directly relates to profitability for our customers.”
The big investment has paid off in productivity and efficiency gains for Kyung Boo. “Our aggregate production percentages are now 60% aggregates and 40% sand. The total production amount is approximately 150,000, which can be expanded to 200,000 when needed. The production ratio is about 4:6,” Mr. Park tells.
