MPEX-430RS Mobile Cone Crusher Crushes Basalt


A family owned and operated Construction Company in Philippines, owner Mr.Lim had been struggling with very specific crushing demands, not only for their recycling tasks but also for quarrying concerning materials, safety requirements and grains size. His company focuses on excavation, grading, rocking, demolition and asphalt paving. The company also produces aggregate materials in their sand and gravel quarry, where they needed to crush round basalt: a real challenge for any machine. With MPEX Corporation they found a like-minded partner.

Looking for a solution in China

At the Bauma, China, Mr. Lim heard of a portable crusher from MPEX, which led him to visit the MPEX booth. Mr. Lim soon became familiar with MPEX and product line and realized that MPEX’s approach to business was very much like his own, both companies focusing on customer service, striving to be a reliable business partner offering professionalism, integrity, open communication, honesty and fairness.


From decision to purchase –MPEX Factory 

After months of analyzing financial data, getting the opinion of an objective contractor, he narrowed search down. He was desperate to find a machine that was able to crush asphalt, concrete and round basalt as well. Understanding the importance of this, MPEX took samples of his basalt to Shanghai, China and began to work on options for him. Shortly after that Mr. Lim made the decision to visit MPEX factory in Shanghai, China.  "The outstanding MPEX design applied to more than just crushers. The MPEX Headquarters is an impressive achievement all on its own.”  Mr. Lim reveals his first impressions. He left China three days later as a proud new owner of a new MPEX-430RS.

Post purchase and training 

Once the equipment arrived in Philippines, MPEX Service Manager Mr. He and Sales Manager Mr. Tamer taught the crews about the crusher and scalping plant. Their primary goal was to teach and then step aside. This way the MPEX team quickly prepared the crews to be independent while making sure that they had their phone numbers if they needed anything. “With their help, we have been able to crush concrete and rock meeting specifications.” Mr. Lim tells about one of their biggest achievements. After a short time in use the MPEX machines have already proven tremendously cost effective: “Everything is very well engineered and well thought-out, from simple hammer and screen changing to a multitude of crusher settings. The MPEX-430RS is designed to do one thing very well – crush,” he adds.
