A family-run business in eastern England is reaping the efficiency and production benefits of investing in the latest washing solution technology.
Peterborough-based PJ Thory has joined forces with Aggregate Processing Solutions (APS) to introduce the latest high-performance CDE washing system to its business operations.
Comprising of a M2500 and an AggMax 83R, the system is already proving its worth, processing 1,000 tonnes/day of concrete aggregates at sizes 10mm, 20mm and 40mm, as well as concrete sand, for its customer base across the region.
This investment in state-of-the-art machinery reinforces PJ Thory’s position as one of the region’s largest haulage and aggregate suppliers.
Founded in 1965 by Peter Thory, PJ Thory is now run by his sons Tim and James Thory, as well as grandsons Jamie and Edward Thory.
APS, the specialist washing arm of the Finlay Group, has a long association with the company stretching back more than 20 years and worked closely with the team to introduce the new plant.

Jamie Thory said: “We were looking for a long-term, complete washing solution and this system is just that. It’s proved itself to be reliable and is washing material to the highest standard we’ve seen. As a company we gain great confidence and reassurance that we have the service and back-up from APS.”
The CDE M2500 has feeding, screening, sand washing and stockpiling in one compact unit and can produce four aggregate products and a single sand to the required specification.
Working in conjunction with the CDE M2500 is an AggMax 83R, an enhanced log washer system that gets the aggregates to the correct concrete specification through high attrition scrubbing, final rinsing and grading.
John Dunne, managing director of APS, said: “We’ve supplied PJ Thory with the highest quality equipment that’s the most up-to-date on the market.
