How to increase productivity?
Britagem e Pavimentadora Barracão has been operating in the aggregates market for 15 years and has the capacity to produce a total of 150 thousand tons of crushed stone per month in its plant. Located in Gaspar, Santa Catarina, Brazil, it has its own fleet and serves the entire Itajaí Valley region. The organization also owns an asphalt plant and supplies crushed plant material for the asphalt base along with standard or ecological asphalt produced from recycled rubber.
The company used to have a closed-circuit operation for crushed stone extraction but its activities had to be interrupted whenever there was a need to adjust or calibrate the equipment. This affected productivity of the plant greatly. Parallel to this, Barracão was also looking to increase fine materials production to meet increasing market demand.
