First publishedin Aggregates Business Europe
Finning has delivered to J Murphy & Sons eight new Caterpillar 314E LCR hydraulic excavators, making it the first business in the UK to invest in the new model.
The building and civil engineering company has also bought five Cat 320E LRR hydraulic excavators, bringing its total fleet of Cat machines to 25.
The zero-tail swing machinery is built to meet European Union stage IIIB emission standards.
John Coll, division director of plant, transport and procurement at J Murphy & Sons, said: “As a business, we operate in a multitude of different applications that can prove to be challenging when matching plant equipment. We found Finning encompassed everything we were looking for in terms of equipment, back-up support and cost.”
As part of the deal, each machine will benefit from a two-year preventative warranty and the back-up support of the nationwide network of Finning branches and on-call engineers.
The machinery meets J Murphy & Sons zero accident policy, with both companies achieving RoSPA Gold Awards.
