We’re welcoming some new additions to our fleet over the next month, including the new CAT 308's and 313's which benefit from many of the latest safety features and equipment such as new hi-viz handrails. This comes as part of our continued investment in our plant hire operation to provide Selwood customers with up-to-date equipment from leading brands.
Selwood is to spend £4.2million on its plant fleet in 2020 as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to offering the latest environmentally-friendly construction equipment for hire across its UK branch network.
As lockdown restrictions ease across the UK, the health and wellbeing of staff customers remains our highest priority.
This video outlines the strict social distancing and hygiene measures that all Selwood staff are working to whether they are at our headquarters, in our network of pump rental and plant hire branches, or out serving customers.
You might have spotted some of Selwood’s team on TV recently, filmed playing their part in one of the biggest water infrastructure projects in the country.
Viewers of Sewermen on Channel 5 saw Selwood pumps being switched on to get water flowing into a newly-built reservoir in the Lake District, Cumbria. The 50-megalitre facility was filled up over three months to test for any cracks or leaking. Having passed all tests, it will be placed underground to preserve the natural beauty of the surrounding area.
Being able to rely on the accurate measurement of pumped flows is highly important to customers who rent Selwood’s packaged pumping systems. Better measurement means better performance, higher efficiency and reduced costs.
Now customers can be more confident than ever after Selwood specialists worked with a key supplier to help in develop of a new tool which enables us to quickly and easily verify the accuracy of flowmeters used in our packaged pumping systems.
Selwood has signed a three-year partnership deal with JN Bentley to supply pumps and rental equipment from its network of branches around the UK.
The trading agreement cements the long-term relationship between Selwood and JN Bentley, which provides services in the water sector and construction markets and is part of global management, engineering and development consultancy Mott MacDonald.
