The deal was struck with Murley Construction, the Doosan dealer for the West Midlands, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire and Staffordshire.
JPE has purchased Doosan DL450 and DL420 wheel loaders and Doosan DX225LC and DX380LC crawler excavators for use at its recycling and waste handling operations across the Midlands.
The arrival of the new Doosan equipment is part of the latest phase of development in JPE’s business which has been steadily growing in the areas of aggregates, groundworks and site clearance services.
Steve Birch, Managing Director at JPE, said: “We were very impressed by the 5-machine package offered by Murley and Doosan.
“The Doosan range of equipment provides the performance and specifications required for the large majority of the work we carry out and this has been supported by excellent back-up from Murley.”
The new DL420 wheel loader is being used for loading work at the JPE operation at Tamworth in Warwickshire, where the company runs a washing plant producing a range of fully washed recycled aggregates including sand and 40, 20 and 10 mm gravels from fully sustainable sources.
The new crawler excavators are being used for recycling work on a major earthmoving project in the area.
