Leading pump and plant provider Selwood supported a charity football tournament in Bristol that saw more than £2,000 raised for good causes.
A team from Selwood’s Bristol branch took part in the Waste Water Cup 2018, which saw companies involved in the water industry from across the South West enter five-a-side teams for a knock-out football tournament. Held at Goals, in Broomhill Road, Bristol, the day raised a total of £2,180, which will be split equally between The National Autistic Society and Cancer Research UK.
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.
