Caldwell Construction Ltd of Stoke on Trent has taken delivery of four EC140D crawler excavators and six Volvo compact excavators in a collaborative deal between Volvo Construction Equipment and Seddons (Plant & Engineers) Ltd - Volvo’s utility equipment dealer for the area.
The four new Volvo EC140D’s were selected following a competitive tender process but in particular thanks to the reliability and performance of their EC140C machines purchased back in 2008. “Basically we have trust in the Volvo brand in terms of performance and reliability,” comments Caldwell Construction’s buyer Chris Hopwood. “Our EC140C’s have performed well and when it comes to the mini excavators, we chose Volvos again thanks in part to good reliability but also due to the fact that Seddons, the local dealer are right on our doorstep providing first class support for parts and service.”
Joining the four fourteen tonne machines are three Volvo EC27Cs and three of the latest ECR88D models. All ten machines have been fully deployed working on a growing portfolio of prestigious multi-million pound housing construction projects for major house building contractors in the Greater Manchester and Merseyside conurbations. The machines join a mixed fleet of equipment which is specifically used on all of Caldwell Construction’s projects in the north, the north west of England, and the Midlands. The complete package represents an increment to Caldwell’s fleet of equipment which includes excavators, site dumpers and rollers and other mixed equipment totaling around 100 items of plant.
Caldwell Construction Ltd, a family run business is a groundwork contractor for many construction projects from new build homes, car parks to industrial units and commercial premises offering a complete civil engineering package for the construction industry.
