A leading groundworks and civils contractor has invested in a fleet of new JCB equipment in a deal worth more than £1.1 million.
Essex-based MDS Civil Engineering has taken delivery of 21 new machines including JCB’s 10 and 14-tonne tracked excavator models, three, six and nine-tonne site dumpers plus Loadall telescopic handlers, skid steers and Teletruks. The new models have been put straight to work on the company’s groundwork and civil engineering projects at major new build developments across Essex.
MDS Civil Engineering’s Plant & Transport Manager, Patrick Delaney said: “JCB equipment is well designed, cost-effective to run and delivers strong residual values. The huge investment JCB made in the development of the X-Series excavator range has genuinely paid off. They are extremely powerful and the cabs have been praised by our operators.
“We have been a JCB customer for over twenty years and JCB has played a major role in our fleet ever since. It is a very forward-thinking company and through its dealer Greenshields JCB, it provides excellent after sales care. The investment Greenshields JCB has made in its business in our region gives us further confidence to continue with JCB as a major supply partner.”
