Chippindale expand business division with new Epiroc breakers
Plant hire firm invests in 49 Epiroc hydraulic breakers as part of ongoing expansion of its attachments division
CHIPPINDALE Plant Ltd have extended their rental equipment offering with the purchase of 49 Epiroc solid body (SB) breakers to support the continued growth of their attachments division hire fleet. The market leading hydraulic breakers are available for rental across the north of England, through the company’s nine strategically placed depots.
Chippindale Plant were first established in 1949 by Wilfred Chippindale and has been a family-owned business right up to the present day. In 2014, the Leeds-based firm formed a specialist attachments division to meet the growing demand for breakers, grabs, compactors and multi processors in the 1–40 tonne machine class.
Last year Chippindale appointed Stevie Mosson to spearhead the continued expansion of the attachments division by focusing on customer requirements and to further develop the firm’s position in the recycling, demolition and construction equipment markets.
‘Epiroc’s solid body breakers are the perfect tool for our hire fleet, as well as being popular with our customers on a wide range of applications,’ commented managing director Nigel Chippindale. ‘We have run SB breakers in our hire fleet for the last 25 years and seeing their continued development, including the move from Atlas Copco to Epiroc.
‘The combination of Epiroc’s reliable products and our investment in staff means we can provide an unrivalled level of knowledge and support to our customers’ businesses and supply the best equipment to get the job done when it is needed.’
