David Smith increases Volvo fleet

Fraserburgh based David Smith Contractors has added more Volvo excavators to its increasing fleet of Volvo machines.

The civil engineering and groundworks contractor, which undertakes bespoke projects for retail, oil and gas clients in the north of Scotland, has just invested in a new Volvo EC220D crawler and an EW140D wheeled excavator. “We continue to have an excellent relationship with team from Volvo and the machines have been reliable and productive as well,” explained proprietor David Smith. “The opinion of my operators is equally important and they appreciate the high standard of operator comfort and overall performance we’ve found with the machines.”

The latest additions are set to support the contractor’s expansion into new markets, including demolition, crushing and quarrying, piling and major multi million pound groundworks contracts.  “Moving into these areas and to be able to offer our client base a complete package of services is vital for the long term,” said Smith. “And to carry out the work in a cost effective manner means increasing the size of the machines and their capacities in terms of lifting and hydraulic capacity to suit the applications. In doing so we’ve become a one stop solution for our clients.”
