A-Plant invests £24M in new equipment

A-Plant has placed orders for new equipment worth over £24M in the second phase of a £60M+ ongoing investment programme for its hire fleet in 2011/12.

The recent expenditure equips A-Plant with additional fleet and allows for the replacement and renewal of older machines. New equipment includes dumpers, excavators, rollers and forklift telehandlers from a range of manufacturers including Doosan, Terex and JCB.

Substantial investment has also been made in powered access equipment, compressors and generators.

A-Plant CEO Sat Dhaiwal said: “We recognise that customers want the most recent and best quality machines - investment in this equipment will help to achieve this. Over the next five years we plan to invest over £330M in new equipment to ensure that we have one of the youngest most extensive and state-of-the-art fleets of equipment in the hire industry.”
