The new models include 14 EC140D and six EC220D excavators, taking the total number of Volvo machines in the Lynch fleet to over 200.
Merrill Lynch, operations director with L Lynch Plant Hire, said: “We’re currently experiencing huge demand for our equipment across the Midlands.
“This, combined with the recent opening a new depot in Bridgwater, has really helped to boost our market coverage, though we’ve needed to increase the hire fleet to meet this demand.”
Lynch’s 20 new D-series excavators are equipped with the very latest Stage IIIb emissions compliant engines, using DOC and DPF exhaust after-treatment solutions.
Since the business was started in 1980, the company has evolved to become a multi-faceted plant hire and haulage operation that currently employs over 500 people in a nationwide structure.
Lynch’s regional depot in Rushden, Northants, takes care of midlands and the northern regions.
