Lincolnshire based civil engineering and surfacing contractors, Flexi Dig Ltd has added six new Volvo compact excavators to its plant fleet for the first time, taking delivery from Volvo’s utility dealer for the area – Rickmar Plant Sales Ltd.

Deciding on the new Volvos was a new step for managing director Alistair Bett who established the company in August 2002 as an owner operator. Joined by his brother Richard ten years ago the family business has grown and evolved into a thriving civil engineering and groundworks business together with a very active surfacing division. “With several prestigious contracts recently awarded we felt it was time to replace some of our older compact excavators and select a premium brand that reflected the right image for the company.” explains Alistair. “We had some experience with the Volvo product from hiring their 5 tonne and 6 tonne zero swing models and were quite impressed with the performance and build quality. Relationships are equally important and we have established a good rapport with Rickmar Plant Sales on parts availability and supply for some of our other machines. They put together a very competitive package to trade out our old machines so we felt confident in making our decision to purchase the new Volvos.”

The six new machines range from the 1.8 tonne EC18D up to the 8.8 tonne ECR88D, the models in between being two EC27C’s, an EC35C and an ECR58D. “We’ve been particularly impressed with the Volvo ECR88D in terms of its performance, stability and digging ability,” continues Alistair. “Our operators have certainly appreciated our decision to purchase Volvo.”

The new range of excavators join Flexi Dig’s fleet of equipment which includes excavators up to 12 tonnes in operating weight, site dumpers and rollers. The machines will be deployed on the company’s own projects which range from general groundworks to bespoke renewable activities involving the construction of solar parks, wind farms with the requisite cabling installation - nationwide. Besides its groundworks and civil engineering division, Flexi Dig Ltd based at Yarburgh in Lincolnshire also operates a surfacing division which undertakes work for the local authorities and numerous national house builders.
