In recent years, Kenya has witnessed an increase in the number of infrastructural development projects. This has led to an increase in the demand for construction materials, prompting numerous crushing machines to be imported and making the availability of the machines scarce in the market.
Stone crushing is a specific business, one that requires a separate industrial license, and one that is not open for foreign direct investment. Added to that, the lucrative business is surely outside the scope of the construction contract packages that Kenyan contractors have to deliver.
At the same time, the process of crushing concrete into smaller pieces has proven to be a cost-intensive and painstaking task. This has especially been the case for women, who are often the ones responsible for crushing stones in informal settlements of Kenya, spearheading the construction industry.
To alleviate this process and reduce the environmental implications, especially due to high emissions from the public transit buses, the Government of Kenya introduced the formation of the Stone Crusher Management Committee in 2002. The committee deals with the issuance of permits, setting of procedures, and ensuring that all regulatory measures are followed.
The stone crushers are highly mobile owing to their self-loading property. The machines can load the crushed stones onto a truck or a dump truck ready for transportation onto the construction site. They can also be used directly on the construction sites to crush the stones precisely where needed.
The efficiency and convenience that mobile stone crushers bring to the jobsite contribute to the overall efficiency and productivity of the construction project. Having these crushers on-site eliminates the need for trucks to transport the materials to and from the site, saving both time and money. Additionally, the crushers can crush materials directly at the construction site, creating a continuous supply of crushed stones, which reduces the reliance on imports.
Moreover, these stone crushers are also equipped with a compact design, making them very easy to transport and move around. This ensures that construction projects can be completed even in remote areas, where transportation of materials is often challenging.
Importantly, the stone crushers allow construction companies to recycle waste materials extracted from the old structures and buildings. This not only helps to reduce waste and environmental pollution, but also reduces the need for raw materials for new construction projects.
The introduction of stone crushers in the Gulf region has revolutionized the construction industry and helped to provide a direct and continuous supply of crushed stones, bringing great precision and efficiency to construction sites. Furthermore, these machines have also contributed to the creation of jobs for women in Kenya, as they can now take part in the construction industry, making a significant impact on their economic empowerment.
In conclusion, the stone crushers in Kenya have played a pivotal role in the construction industry. From the crushing of large stones to the transportation and distribution of these materials, these machines have significantly improved the efficiency of construction projects. As a result, the construction industry has been revolutionized by these stone crushers.
