Builders merchant group Travis Perkins has invested in 500 new JCBs worth more than £7m for its Tool Hire division.
Travis Perkins has bought a fleet of JCB mini excavators and One Tonne High Tip site dumpers to strengthen its UK-wide tool hire business. This brings the company’s investment to more than 2,700 JCB machines in the past decade.
Supplied by Watling JCB, the new machines have been delivered to Travis Perkins’ network of 660 branches.
Richard Teller, Watling JCB managing director, said: ”Over recent years we have continued to strengthen our aftermarket business to ensure we provide a market-leading service for Travis Perkins. This order supports our continued investment in enhancing the customer experience when dealing with Watling JCB.”
Catherine Gibson, Travis Perkins tool hire managing director, said: “As we continue to invest in our Tool Hire business, it is important we work with suppliers who offer value for money and market-leading innovation for our customers. JCB clearly demonstrates its ongoing commitment to us and to our customers by delivering on both counts.”
