INTRODUCTION

Babcock Moxey (Gloucester) Ltd were designers and suppliers of bulk materials handling systems. The equipment was installed at many of the power plants, mining operations, import terminals and steelworks around the world. In the U.K the company carried out work for the British Steel Corporation, the Central Electricity Generating Board, and the National Coal Board. Thirty years on, much of the kit is still in use today.

The products included:

  • Conveying systems
  • Boom stackers
  • Bucket wheel reclaimers
  • Bucket wheel stacker-reclaimers
  • Bridge type reclaimers
  • Barrel blending reclaimers
  • Rapid train loading systems
  • Ship and barge loaders
  • Continuous ship unloaders
  • Surface mining systems

Although the company name and offices have long since gone, this web site provides a brief record of the company history and projects that were undertaken at the Gloucester office.
