Your Next Generation of Equipment29 Mar 2021
To keep your sites running smoothly we’ve taken fleet upgrade to a whole new level. This month we placed an order for 2,100 machines from JCB which feature the latest stage V engines and offer considerable environmental and financial benefits to you.
The deal is worth £65 million and is the biggest ever order for JCB from a UK customer in their company’s 75-year history. The investment includes; loadall telescopic handlers, mini and midi excavators, site dumpers, tracked excavators and rough terrain forklifts – all manufactured at JCB’s Staffordshire factories.
The plant machines are fitted with a stage V engine, which improves fuel efficiency, whilst optimising performance and reducing carbon emissions significantly.
We have also purchased 350 JCB access platforms, which range from 15 to 45ft. Each unit is certified to EN280 for CE conformance, which is the highest product quality standard on the market.
All the machines will be fitted with full telematics, and you will be able to manage their performance through our customer portal - Command Centre. Providing access to data and insights, customers can review usage and productivity.
