Leading plant hire specialist Selwood has sealed a major new strategic partnership with Finning UK & Ireland that will see the business add Caterpillar machines to its fleet for the first time in its history.
The ongoing partnership has seen the first order placed for four Cat 313FL GC and eight Cat 308 excavators, which will be delivered into Selwood Bristol and Cardiff. The rest of Selwood’s branch network will receive their machines in due course and, as part of a close working relationship, Finning will be providing equipment training to Selwood engineers and sales staff.
Selwood is to invest in a significant upgrade of its rental fleet, replacing its 400-strong fleet of excavators in a four-year programme.
The investment comes as Selwood continues to grow its plant hire operation, with a focus on versatility, reliability and outstanding customer service. The comprehensive upgrade programme includes a partnership with Takeuchi, which will supply excavators to Selwood's seven UK plant hire centres.
A team from Selwood have raised more than £4,500 for a vital children’s charity after taking on the fastest zip line in the world and climbing to the summit of Mount Snowdon.
Ten employees from the leading pump and plant company took on a two-day sponsored challenge in Wales in aid of the Honeypot Children’s Charity, which helps hundreds of young carers and vulnerable children between the ages of five and 12.
Selwood will be showcasing new high-performance solids handling pumps that are ideal for quarrying and construction applications at the forthcoming Hillhead 2018.
The S150M is a new medium head pump suitable for multiple uses, including long distance water transfer and dewatering for sites and quarries. Featuring Selwood’s trademark reliability and proven Selprime automatic self-priming technology, the diesel-driven model complements Selwood’s existing S range of solids handling pumps.
Following a comprehensive business review and keen competitive tender process, the Environment Agency has awarded Selwood a place on a new framework for its hired equipment requirements.
Selwood will provide static, towable and electric submersible pumps over the next six years under a framework that provides added value through improved efficiencies, consolidated reporting and service levels.
