Mansfield secures crushing advantage

As more and more major infrastructure projects are initiated by corporations and governments around the country, there will be increasing demand for the raw materials to support the works. Mansfield Crushing is an Victorian based company that is well placed to assist with the increased demand and specific material processing needs required for these projects.

Mansfield Crushing started life as an earth-moving business in 1989 and grew to include several quarries and a pre-mix concrete facility. Mansfield Crushing made the decision to sell the pre-mix plant in the early 2000s and later sold the quarries to now focus on contract crushing and earth-moving.

Mansfield Crushing has a strong internal team of Trades People and Operators that take great pride in their workmanship.

During the past decade, Mansfield Crushing has rebuilt and developed its contract crushing and quarry management operations to support the major capital works projects underway or being planned. The company now processes in excess of two million tonnes per annum across multiple locations throughout Victoria.

It is not just the demand for quality road base materials that is fueling the growth of Mansfield’s work, the company has also been involved in supplying the crushed rock for the hardstands
and access roads for several wind farm projects, onsite crushing for sub divisions as well as the supply of high specification sealing aggregates for the build and redevelopment of various highway and airports throughout Australia.

Mansfield’s projects now support the operation of six mobile crushing and screening crews, as well as a number of quarry development, civil and project management operations. The company currently employees more than 55 staff members.

Mansfield also prides itself in the knowledge that its equipment and staff can go onsite at any construction project, mine or quarry in the country and know that they can meet all the relevant legislative and industry requirements for safe operation of the machinery and protection of its staff and other workers.

Ant stated that Mansfield Crushing has been a member of the CMPA for many years and active on its management committee for the past three. “The CMPA is an important body as it can give a unified voice to the disparate parts of the industry,” he said. “By being willing to participate in the operation of the organisation, we can help guide the future development of the materials
processing and construction sector.”

Mansfield's projects now support the operation of six mobile crushing and screening crews, with various combination options to achieve any quarry product requirement.

The CMPA’s own journal, “Sand & Stone” features articles about successes achieved by member companies, as well as industry suppliers. Ant stated that it is a testament to the association that
the journal is celebrating its 100th issue this year. “We are proud to be a part of this edition,” he added. “For any magazine to reach such a milestone is an achievement, even more so for a specialised trade publication.”

Since its inception, the CMPA has been successful in representations to government and industry on a range of issues including rehabilitation, work safety, preferred suppliers and development of an industry reference manual.

All Mansfield’s staff are encouraged to extend their understanding of the quarrying industry through professional development programs offered by the company, equipment manufacturers
and industry bodies such as the CMPA.
