One of the UK’s leading national plant hire companies has placed its biggest ever order for JCB equipment worth £25m as it gears up for growth.
Haydock-based Plant Hire UK (PHUK) is buying 450 JCB machines as its new HQ becomes fully operational.
The bulk of the order is for 350 Loadall telescopic handlers, but the deal also includes site dumpers, mini excavators and tandem rollers. The deal means its fleet continues to be exclusively JCB, and comprises the full range of equipment.
Supplied by dealer Gunn JCB, the order includes JCB’s smallest telehandler, the 1.5-tonne to 4m 516-40 model, through to the flagship 20m lift height 540-200 model. Site dumpers range from one- to nine-tonne models and mini excavators from 1.5 to eight tonnes.
