More Hyundai machines for Buckhurst Plant Hire
Lancashire-based plant-hire firm in £1.5 million deal with Hyundai dealers Taylor and Braithwaite
BUCKHURST Plant Hire, based in Rossendale, Lancashire, are the largest independent hirers in the north-west of England, with more than 2,000 items of machinery in their fleet.
The company began to introduce Hyundai excavators, supplied by Cumbria-based Hyundai dealers Taylor and Braithwaite, to its fleet in 2012 and, by the end of 2013, had 48 Hyundai machines in its stable, including 14-tonne and 20-tonne excavators and three machines above 30 tonnes.
The company has recently signed another deal with Taylor and Braithwaite for a further 22 Hyundai excavators, comprising 14-tonne R145 CRD’s and 20-tonne R210LC-9’s, in a deal worth around £1.5million.
The machines are due for delivery this month with the completion of the order in early February 2014.
Lee Gansler, marketing manager of Buckhurst Plant Hire, said: ‘We have invested heavily in new kit to fulfil our customers’ needs; there is a new-found confidence in the market, which is excellent news for the construction industry.
‘We introduced Hyundai machines into our fleet because they are incredibly reliable and we get very good feedback from our operators, who enjoy driving the vehicles. We’ve had a number of Hyundai machines on some very high-profile projects, such as the M8 road project in Scotland and the Manchester City ground, where they showed an impressive performance.’
Mr Gansler continued: ‘We also receive excellent back-up service from Taylor and Braithwaite and I am sure we will be adding more Hyundai machines to our fleet in the future.
‘We already have forward orders on this batch and some of the machines will be deployed to our brand new depot in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, which opened at the beginning of this month. We now have four depots, including one in Leeds, West Yorkshire, and one in Bathgate, West Lothian.’
