Lynch Plant Hire and Hill Engineering strike a deal for 50 new TEFRA coupler’s worth £120,000
THE recent Plantworx construction equipment exhibition at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, in Leicestershire, saw Lynch Plant Hire and Hill Engineering strike a deal for 50 new TEFRA couplers worth £120,000.
Once delivered, the new quick-hitches will be coupled with 50 brand new Caterpillar machines which Lynch also purchased at the Plantworx exhibition in a deal worth £5.8million.
Lynch Plant Hire, who have worked with Co. Down-based Hill Engineering for many years, say the synergy between the two companies continues to grow.
Merrill Lynch (second from left), operations director at Lynch Plant Hire, commented: ‘Here at Lynch we run more than 1,000 excavators and all of the machines are fitted with Hill’s hitches. We believe that they are the safest and most reliable available on the market. They have been tried and tested and also represent excellent value for money.’
Lynch say they are committed to major investment in the latest equipment and are busy expanding their fleet to meet the demands of the company’s busy work schedule. Lynch-owned machines fitted with Hill attachments can be found on many high-profile projects, including Crossrail, M25 expansion, Hinkley Point and the Chiltern Railway.
Mr Lynch continued: ‘Our clients include Skanska, Carillion and Balfour Beatty, and all are happy with our choice of Hill attachments. The hitches are virtually maintenance-free and provide the utmost in safety – since the dual-locking quick-hitch we have not had one reported incident on any of our sites.’
Ian Hill (far left), managing director of Hill Engineering, said: ‘Hill and Lynch have one of the best relationships in the business. Lynch have been instrumental in helping our business to develop and improve current products. We have a vision of what works as a business, but customers such as Lynch understand their own requirements much better. Over the past few years we have moved our focus to listening to the critical feedback presented by our customers.’
