Pidherney’s is one of Alberta’s largest trucking and heavy construction companies. Started by Merv Pidherney in 1964, the company now employs 650 people and crushes 250,000 to 500,000 tons of aggregates annually. Pidherney’s produces aggregates for roadbuilding projects, oilfield sites, ready mix plants and water and sewer civil works projects. Pidherney’s has an impressive fleet of equipment that includes more than 100 gravel and low-bed trucks, as well as a variety of excavators, scrapers, dozers, loaders, rock trucks, packers, crushers, screens, hydrovac trucks and more. To help keep up and expand its aggregates operations, they invested in a Haver & Boecker Niagara F-Class 1100 Portable Plant.
The F-Class Portable Plant exceeded expectations. I looked at other plants and they just didn’t meet our needs. I wanted a trouble-free plant and I got it. You can tell the people that built it knew what they were doing.
– Merv Pidherney, Pidherney’s owner
The F-Class Portable Plant is designed to maneuver easily between different locations and boasts a number of features and benefits, many of which were notable to the Pidherney’s team. Pidherney’s estimates that their new F-Class Portable Plant has helped them to increase production by 25%. The operation especially noticed the durability of the Ty-Max and Ty-Wire screen media, convenience of the Ty-Rail quick tensioning system, and the option for changing screen sections easily by lowering the machine to a horizontal position.
