See one of our bedding products in action!

16 December 2020

It's not often we talk about our products on this website but we are so delighted with this unprompted review of our Snowflake Equine Wood Pellets on You Tube that we thought it was worth a share.

Snowflake wood pellets are made from UK sourced 100% virgin softwood. The wood is compressed to form a pellet with nothing else added to them.

Wood pellets make a lovely, warm fluffy bed that is very absorbent. They can absorb up to three times their volume in water, and they lock in odours too. The pellets are fully biodegradable and rot down quickly on the muck heap into a rich compost.

Shadow the Unicorn clearly agrees and we are delighed all the horses on this yard are now using Snowflake wood pellets. Thank you for sharing your experience of our bedding!

Plevin Invest in New Grinder

8 December 2020

We're delighted to be introducing this Peterson 2710D Horizontal Grinder, supplied by Neutron Equipment, to our Elkesley site, near Retford.

The Peterson is already processing up to 70 TPH of waste wood (dependant on wood grade and selected screen size).

The Peterson Pacific offers a wide variety of grinder options, ranging from 500Hp – 1125hp.  The tracked 2710D weighing in at 31 tonnes is powered by a Cat C18 755HP Tier IV engine.  Peterson Horizontal Grinders offer accurate product sizing, more throughput and greater economy in fuel and wear parts.  Its feed system incorporates sloped feed walls which allow better visibility while loading, facilitating smoother feeding for increased production in a wide variety of materials.

Managing Director Jamie Plevin, said: “We looked at the throughput, the build, and costs and other operational considerations and the Peterson machine came out on top.  Peterson is a well-established brand, and we were well aware of the quality and processing abilities, so after further discussions with Neutron Equipment we chose the 2710D.

Sustainability is taken seriously at Plevin. With over 600,000 tonnes of wood collected, processed, and distributed each year to the biomass, animal bedding, and chipboard sectors, the company prevent over 200,000 tonnes of waste going to landfill annually; with an additional 2,000 - 3,000 tonnes a year of ferrous and non-ferrous being recycled.

Jamie added: “We're very pleased with the machine and the advice and support we have received from the team at Neutron Equipment, it has been a great experience.”

 

(UPDATED SEPT. 2020) - COVID 19 – Plevin Group Safety Update

25 September 2020

RISK ASSESSMENT UPDATED AS OF 25th September 2020

“As we approach the easing of lockdown restrictions across the UK, we wanted to let you know what we’re doing to keep our people and our sites safe against COVID-19.

Plevin as a group made an early decision to implement working from home measures for our office based staff to minimise the risk to our colleagues, and throughout the lockdown we have been implementing many new safety measures to reduce the risk of infection upon a return to normality in the workplace.

Over the past weeks and months, based on advice from the UK Government we have been carrying out an extensive risk assessment program to identify and mitigate potential areas of concern to allow a safe working environment for all of our staff.

A full copy of our completed risk assessment is freely available from the link below, along with our 5 Step Plan to ensure a safer working environment.” – Jamie Plevin
