Red Rhino 5000 series crusher to Pinewood Studios


Star Role at Pinewood Studios for Red Rhino

Red Rhino recently supplied a Red Rhino 5000 series crusher to Pinewood Studios via MCM Film Services for use in assembly and demolishing stage sets for the Pinewood Film studios.

An example of this is the crusher that was being recently used to create the banked film sets on the latest James Bond film where the Red Rhino was rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous let alone James Bond himself

Hitachi mini-excavator feeds Red Rhino crusher at Pinewood StudiosJames Bond blows up the film sets and after processing, the studio will reuse the rubble to make something else. With global emphasis on recycling, re-using the building rubble that Daniel Craig blows up during filming makes sound economic sense

Previously the hardcore would have been brought in at cost and used to form basic structures for new film sets. By using a Red Rhino Crusher Pinewood Film Studios have saved thousands of pounds on bought-in aggregate and back fill to create the perfect set

No Hiding Place with Enigma TelematicsNo Hiding Place with Enigma Telematics

Enigma Telematics has helped to recover hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of plant and machinery that was stolen in the UK and shipped to the Middle East earlier this year.

By using a relatively new but increasingly popular technique known as ‘fake hiring’, criminals used bogus organisations to steal substantial amounts of equipment from leading plant hire companies in the UK.

Fortunately, some of the stolen equipment had been fitted with tracking devices by Essex-based Enigma Telematics.

Having been alerted to thefts experienced by two of its customers, Enigma used its Skyline tracking system to establish that some stolen machinery had passed through the Port of Felixstowe in Suffolk.

The Port handles more than 3.4 million containers each year. Despite this, the location data provided by Enigma was used to pinpoint the location of some of the stolen machinery.

Although the equipment had now left Felixstowe, the data provided by Enigma was so accurate that Port of Felixstowe Police was able to establish the destination of the three containers housing the stolen equipment. One was bound for Saudi Arabia and the other two were destined for Dar es Salaam, the largest city in Tanzania, East Africa. The containers were intercepted and returned.

When the containers were opened back in the UK, they were found to contain more stolen equipment than was first thought. The first container received back at Felixstowe was found to hold six generators, valued at around £125,000. The second contained three excavators, two generators and two dumper trucks, with a combined value estimated at between £150,000 and £175,000.
