Red Rhino keeps up the charge…

Red Rhino acquired by Winfield Engineering.

Regular readers or the Demolition News blog will know that compact crusher manufacturer Red Rhino recently hit choppy water leading to the company being brought back from the brink of insolvency by Bryan Eccles

At that time, Eccles stated that he was seeking a larger company to acquire Red Rhino and to drive forward the proven brand. That larger company has now emerged in the shape of Winfield Engineering Ltd which has just been named as the official new owner.

Winfield Engineering Ltd, formed in 1968, is a second generation family business with a long established independent fabrication engineering background. Winfield Engineering is based in Lincolnshire and has enjoyed over 40 years of engineering experience. With a highly professional approach and skilled work force, the company strives to deliver ongoing quality and cost saving solutions to all their customers along with providing the latest in engineering innovation.

Managing Director, Mr Simon Winfield, and his co-directors, recognised an opportunity of a lifetime, “My team and I really look forward being part of the manufacturing of such an established, innovative and green product,” said Mr Winfield. “It is our mission to take the Red Rhino brand to the next level and already have plenty of new ideas which will be implemented right from the start.”

Mr Winfield says he appreciates the fact that the construction industry has taken a bit of a ‘body-punch’ but believes that the continual increase in enquiries indicates a boost in consumers recognising the significant cost reduction savings generated by onsite recycling. “The Red Rhino brand is known all over the world and is a vital necessity in the construction industry which help save masses of money but also help the fight against waste going to landfill – an obviously greener option!” said Mr Winfield.
