For multiple decades, Contract Crushing, also known as “Custom Crushing”, has solved many problems for aggregate producers.  NorX has implemented many solutions for customers utilizing Contract Crushing.  We’re here to assist you in your operation, whether it is opening a greenfield site, gaining added salable inventory through supplemental crushing, or recycling asphalt and concrete. Our Contract Crushing division has reached a level of unmatched excellence in providing solutions to our producer customers in areas such as:

Greenfield Sites

In comparison to purchasing your own plant, you can significantly reduce the upfront capital requirement to get your project underway by utilizing NorX’s Contract Crushing services. Variable costs associated with equipment repair, wear part replacement, and labor can also be reduced.  NorX’s highly flexible portable crushing and screening plant designs give you the freedom to observe the sales in your new market to get a better idea of the plant capacity you will ultimately need to invest in.

Our Contract Crushing services have opened over 50 greenfield sites in the last 55 years.  Many customers have leveraged our knowledge, people, and experience to expand into new markets! If you’re looking to open a greenfield site, be sure to contact NorX!

supplemental crushing

It can be a tall task to balance an aggregate processing plant’s production to meet sales demand.  Over the years, we’ve seen many of our aggregate customers sitting on a surplus of one product that isn’t moving, while simultaneously struggling to make enough of another product.  In these cases, the customer needs a way to make a salable product out of a stagnating one.

NorX can offer the crushing equipment and seasoned operators to deliver this solution to our aggregate customers.  With their compact design, our mobile crushing plants can be deployed quickly and set up without disrupting a mine site’s traffic flow.  They can also be utilized to re-crush a low demand product that has been overproduced and isn’t selling in order to create a high demand product like 8’s and/or dust.

You can break the bank by permanently changing your crushing and screening plant layout just to meet short-term sales demands! Instead, partner with NorX’s Contract Crushing division and experience what our flexibility can do for your operation!

crushing overburden

Overburden can be a big issue on a mining property.  It can cover a large portion of a site’s property and even worse, make it impossible to access valuable reserves.  In addition to these issues, there are costs associated with removing, hauling, dumping, and disposing of this material.  In some cases, there may be enough rock in the overburden that customers can still find sales for this product.  However, processing this material may become a challenge since there is cost in converting a plant over to process the overburden without spoiling the existing inventory stockpiles.

NorX’s portable track or wheeled plants are able to be set up closet to the overburden pile and far from the existing plant.  The small footprint and large capacity of these plants can turn your spoil pile into a pile of product without causing any disruption to your current operation.  This will aid in getting the material off your property and uncovering your reserves.  However, it can also add an auxiliary source of revenue to your plant’s bottom line.

Don’t waste time and slow your plant down by trying to crush unwanted material! Call NorX and let us turn your spoil pile into a pile of cash!

Plant on reserves

plant on reserves

Sometimes the remainder of reserves in a maturing quarry are located directly underneath the processing plant.  When getting close to the end of a quarry’s life you are inevitably going to “back yourself into a corner”.  At this point, the quarry owner and operator will have to relocate the existing plant to gain access to the reserves and either buy a new plant or re-utilize the old one.  Doing this yourself will be costly and often it’s hard to justify the capital spent for those remaining reserves.  NorX is here to help you bridge the gap.

Our small footprint plants can replace all or a portion of the tonnage of your plant and allow you to continue operations even while you’re dismantling your existing plant.  NorX is here to keep you in inventory and sales while you make the transition! With all our Contract Crushing services, the upfront cost is low and you will be protect from swings in your variable costs.

If you have an aggregate processing plant that is sitting on your remaining reserves, remember to call NorX!

BOT Plants

Regardless of your specific needs for Contract Crushing, we can often propose a Build, Operate, and Transfer option.  In many cases, our Contract Crushing division will build a plant, operate it for a few years, and then transfer the plant over to the customer we are contracted with.  In these instances, the customer can get all the benefits provided by NorX’s Contract Crushing services and then take over the operations themselves.  Often this is at a reduced price in comparison to buying it outright from the beginning.  The customer will also have NorX employees who are able to train the new crew on the plant’s maintenance requirements and operations.
