The deal is part of a £12 million expansion programme by Lynch to strengthen its fleet with more environmentally friendly machines.
The stage IIIB compliant Cat machines supplied by Finning will allow customers of Lynch to have a bigger role in London’s Crossrail Project.
Lynch conducted extensive operator testing on the Cat 432F at one of its sites prior to investing in the machine.
Commenting on the deal, Merrill Lynch, Operations Director for Lynch Plant Hire said: “The significant investment we have made in Cat machinery supplied by Finning is driven by the Lynch Plant Hire commitment to supply its customers with the very best construction equipment on the market.
“We believe the deal with Finning at Plantworx is further evidence of this ethos and the feedback we have had from our operators is a testament to the quality of the Cat equipment.
“Many of our customers are now focused on working on projects where stage IIIB emission standards are essential, such as the Crossrail Project in London and work at the Olympic Park.
“We will now be able to supply them more readily with the best machines for these kinds of jobs, ultimately helping our clients to become more profitable.”
The deal agreed at Plantworx 2013 is for six Cat 432F Backhoe Loaders, six Cat D6N Dozers and 12 Cat 308E excavators, all of which are equipped with Finsight machine monitoring system.
Dermot O’Connor, Sales Manager from Finning said: “Having established a solid working relationship with Lynch Plant Hire, it is encouraging to see the positive impact the Cat machines have already had for its customers.
“The deal done at Plantworx is a further endorsement of the quality of Cat machines and the excellence of the service Finning is able to provide, and I’m confident that additional business can be done with Lynch Plant Hire in the future.”
