Contractors Hire Ltd, a plant and tool hire business based in Reading, has made a major investment in modernising its plant hire fleet this year despite all the implications of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Committed to excellent customer service and providing modern, market leading equipment Contractors Plant Hire has invested in 24 new machines all purchased from Tring based Boss Plant Sales Ltd. The 22 Kubota and 2 Manitou machines were delivered by Boss Plant Sales between March and July and all are now hard at work in housebuilding, and infrastructure development and repair.
The new Kubota machines are models U10-3 (1.1t), KX016-4 (1.5t) and U27-4 (2.6t) and the two new Manitou telehandlers are both model MT625 which can lift 2.5t to 6 metres.
Commenting as the final batch of Kubota KX016-4 were delivered Martin Livermore, Operations Manager, commented, “Our unique ethos is to provide all our customers hire needs as a ‘one-stop shop’ and so we stock the complete range of tools and machinery. When it comes to plant, we only supply the latest market leading equipment which is why, despite all the uncertainties surrounding the pandemic, we have invested heavily in Kubota and Manitou machines. Boss Plant Sales did an excellent job keeping to the delivery schedule we had agreed despite the added pressures of working to Covid-19 health and safety procedures. All the new machines are out at work which proves we were right to press ahead with our investment plans when many just battened down the hatches!”
