Quarry contractor extends services to construction

After almost four decades of supplying crushing and screening plant to the quarrying, mining and construction industries, Rapid Crushing and Screening Contractors (RCS) has diversified its business by establishing a new subsidiary, Rapid Dams.

Area manager Martin Fowler and project manager Mark Bowman were appointed to manage the new venture due to their extensive experience with building mine site tailings facilities, which is Rapid Dam’s main service offering.

“Rapid Dams is a logical extension to RCS’s core business that offers a complete package to our clients,” Fowler told Quarry.

{{image2-a:r-w:250}}In addition to specialising in the construction of both wet and dry lift tailing storage facilities for the mining industry, Fowler said Rapid Dams offered a number of services to the quarrying industry as well. These included the construction and maintenance of silt and settlement ponds, site drainage, diversion of water, overburden stripping and site rehabilitation. It was noted that the business could also assist with dam extensions, raised embankment structures and road construction.

Combined with the RCS’s crushing and screening capabilities, and supported by a fleet of specialised earthmoving equipment – including front-end loaders, articulated dump trucks with ejector gates, excavators with rock breakers, low ground pressure dozers, and service and water trucks – Fowler said Rapid Dams offered clients a “one-stop shop for all their crushing, screening and construction needs”.

“It’s all about being able to offer a safe and efficient, tailored package deal to meet our clients’ ever-changing needs,” he explained.

RCS is headquartered in Maddington, Perth, where it designs, manufactures and maintains crushing and screening plant at its in-house workshop. It also has a branch in Mackay, Queensland.

Fowler said that while Rapid Dams would operate out of the Maddington office, its services would be available nationwide. “We are able to go wherever our clients require us to and we’re well versed in working in remote and hard to reach areas,” he stated.
