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.
Leading pump solutions provider Selwood has introduced a new unit to its renowned solids handling range that is ideal for recycled aggregate, construction and quarrying applications.
The S150M Electric is a modified version of Selwood’s best-selling S150M diesel and features a highly-efficient, environmentally-friendly 110Kw electric motor.
