Worcestershire-based PGC Contractors has taken delivery of eight tracked excavators and five Sitemaster backhoes for a civils contract for Vinci at a huge recycling facility in Oldbury, west Midlands.
The new plant for Chinook Sciences is set to become one of the UKs largest facilities dealing with post shredder residues from end-of-life vehicles.
PGC managing director, Dave Spencer said: “We chose JCB for the service, support and overall package provided by our dealer Gunn JCB. The tracked excavator models are superb groundworkers with impressive outputs and they are extremely compact in relation to their stability and power.”
PGC Commercial Director, Dean Hocking said: “The fact that national contractors are placing repeat business with us in the current climate shows that we are obviously doing things right.
“We are always learning and improving by implementing new practices and procedures and by investing heavily in new plant, health and safety and staff training.”
