Euroblend, the UK distributors for Italian manufacturers, Euromecc, built a complete 150 m3 per hour mobile batching plant in the show hall in a little over 12 hours then disassembled it at the end of the show in 10 hours, showing the industry that the Euroblend claim that you can “hit the ground running” with their FAST series batching plants, is totally justified.
