Selwood has further strengthened its plant hire fleet in the South East as part of on an ongoing programme of investment.
Plant specialists at Selwood’s Sittingbourne branch in Kent have added five new 14-tonne excavators and a range of new telehandlers to the fleet.
The investment, which has been spurred on by increasing demand in the area and a series of new client wins, has also seen Selwood further strengthen the transport capacity of the depot with the addition of a new Mercedes Benz Actros low loader.
Selwood is bringing festive goodwill to the community after teaming up with a children’s charity to run a Christmas drawing competition and fundraising raffle.
The leading pump and plant company invited children from The Honeypot Children’s Charity to submit pictures for a fantastic festive display of designs at its headquarters in Chandler’s Ford.
Plant specialists at Selwood are supporting one of the UK’s biggest family theme parks, Paultons Park, as it adds to its fleet of on-site equipment.
Selwood’s plant sales team, based at Chandler’s Ford, Hampshire, supplied Paultons Park with a 10-tonne Merlo P40.17 Panoramic Telescopic Handler which will be used for a variety of site work, including erecting rides.
A pioneering apprenticeship scheme to train the next generation of skilled workers is being supported by leading plant specialist Selwood.
The company is sponsoring a Hampshire-wide training programme that is the first of its kind in the UK and sets up young people for a career in the civil engineering industry.
Leading plant hire specialist Selwood came to the rescue when a school needed a fast and reliable solution to complete an art project.
The Bristol branch was contacted by St Mary Redcliffe & Temple School, in Bristol, which enquired about whether the team could supply a Ride On Roller for the school’s “Graphic Art” activities week.
The roller is normally supplied by Selwood to contactors for compacting material for roads and foundations, but the school needed the weight of the equipment to make prints.
