ConExpo show guide
06 March 2020
Allu will be exhibiting equipment from its Transformer, Processor and other equipment ranges at the show. With a theme of ‘Transforming the way you work,’ the company says that they will show how transforming efficiency, profitability and green credentials are achieved through transforming equipment and operations.
This translates into efficiency through the solution being a one-stop-shop process enabling the screening, crushing, aerating, mixing and loading all in a one operation. This also enables an increase of profitability, as less material goes to landfill resulting in lower haulage costs and landfill fees.
Additionally, Allu equipment is also focused on businesses transforming their green credentials, as less material transported to the jobsite means a reduction in fuel consumption, less material to landfill and the greater efficient utilisation of waste materials leading to the support of sustainability.
Allu says that its equipment helps transform any carrier ‒ excavator, wheeled loader, skid steer ‒ into a multifunctional tool that will screen, crush, mix, aerate, pulverize and load all in a one-step operation. The company are at stand C20326, Central Hall.
