Year to date company investment.

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This year has been an exciting year for the business which has seen us go from strength to strength. Teaming up with HSS Hire to service the entirety of the Amey contract with regards to the heavy plant gave us the opportunity to vastly increase the size of our fleet of equipment. Whilst we continually invest on a year by year basis, as a business we structure our investment procedures to mainly focus around a 3 year life cycle on all equipment. This enables us to ensure we are providing the newest equipment to all our customers, adding benefit to their business whilst minimising the possibility of equipment malfunction and breakdown.

2016 has been the biggest year in the company’s history with regards to total investment within a single year. This has been greatly received by our customers where we have supplied brand new equipment to all long term contract hires. A brief break down of the new additional fleet equipment is listed below:

Excavators:        103
Dumpers:           44
Rollers:               39
Telehandlers:     81

This is on top of the renewal of over 300 items of existing machines. The total fleet size has increased by 25% taking the total number of heavy plant to over 2000 items which is a major milestone for us.
