The contract saw Versatile provide the full-service construction business with five TA10P heavy-duty Mecalac forward-tip site dumper units. With safety credentials key, each site dumper was fitted with green flashing seatbelt beacons and road light kits for legal highway travel. The models were manufactured and liveried at the Mecalac Construction UK headquarters in Coventry.
Commenting on the contract, Richard Young, Area Sales Manager at Versatile Equipment, said: “With the Knights Brown agreement, a one-size-fits-all solution simply wouldn’t cut it. With projects spanning highly diverse sectors including energy, aerospace, defence and utilities, equipment flexibility was key.
“Thanks to Mecalac’s expansive range, we could offer a solution for every application. What’s more, thanks to rental-tough design and heavy-duty fabrication, each model offered dependability for the future.
Scott Best, Plant Manager at Knights Brown, added; “When it came to updating our fleet, three things were essential – performance, efficiency and safety. Mecalac offered the complete package and, through Versatile Equipment, delivered above and beyond our expectations.
“The units were delivered ahead of schedule, and ready for immediate operation. This ensured the transition between our old and new models was seamless.
“Now operational nationwide, the Mecalac units are already improving job site efficiencies and setting the standard for operator safety. A few innovative technologies, such as start stop and Capture telematics make fleet management easy – low fuel costs, simple servicing.”
