Boral will work with CME for primary supply into Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. CME will be the secondary supplier for Victoria and Tasmania.
This agreement provides for the supply of CME?s manganese wear products for cone, jaw, gyratory, VSI and HSI crushers while CME will continue to supply a range of crusher and screen parts as well as providing on-site and off-site servicing and labour to more than 40 Boral sites Australia-wide.
One of Boral?s central tender requirements was for the safe lifting of crusher liners. This was a contributing factor in CME?s selection as it will provide its patent-pending LockLift and Safe-T Lift lifting systems. These were developed in response to safety issues associated with lifting crusher liners and providing quick, reliable and zero-harm servicing capabilities.
The LockLift and Safe-T Lift lifting devices are used in conjunction with CME?s Linersafe range of manganese crusher wear liners.
This partnership will enable Boral to realise cost savings through a choice of different liner grades and manganese percentages, chosen from the wear liner range.
Utilising CME?s proprietary wear modelling software, CME?s liner development program will provide Boral with an application-specific performance at the lowest total operating cost by matching the optimum profile with the most appropriate grade of manganese steel.
?This partnership will enable Boral to realise cost savings through appropriate application of the correct grade of manganese, coupled with continuous improvement of liner development,? said Gordon Fogwill, CME Queensland?s regional manager.
?Boral will also benefit from the range of products, services and technical support CME has to offer, therefore not only supplying manganese and parts but servicing and maintaining Boral?s equipment and being able to offer solutions.?
CME believes that the partnership will provide a flexible, cost-effective, long term crusher and plant solution for Boral Construction Materials nationally.
