MEET SIMON, BUSINESS OWNER

CHALLENGING VENTURE

I’m Simon, owner of Simon Richardson Contracting. We have four teams out working right across Scotland and the north of England. We began using Volvo excavators in 2003 when we were starting the business off. Volvo was the only company that was willing to take a chance with our new venture.

FOREST RANGER

On this site, we're carrying out ground prep. The harvesting machines have come in and cut the timber. We're preparing the ground for the new trees to be planted. We use Volvo EC160s and we operate a couple of EC140s that are purpose-built for forestry use. In my opinion, Volvo builds one of the best excavators in the market.

STRONG PARTNERSHIP

The backup service Volvo provides is second-to-none and my representative has become a very good friend of mine. He's been very supportive throughout the last 13 years that we've been operating in business. The service that we receive from our Volvo dealer has also been excellent.

The advice I would give to other business managers considering using Volvo excavators is – give them a go! They're well worth the money. They're reliable, and I don't think you'll regret it.

I feel that without the help and the backing of Volvo, my business wouldn't have grown to where it is now. So... Live it. Dig it. Get a Volvo!
