Lynch goes large with new Volvos

L Lynch Plant Hire Ltd is expanding its plant hire activities with major investments in new facilities and heavier Volvo excavators being added to its fleet.

Since opting for Volvo branded excavators for the first time in 2004, L Lynch Plant Hire has added a further twenty five Volvo's to its operating fleet of two hundred, predominantly Volvo badged excavators. At the same time, the Company has recognized the need to be able to offer larger machines for hire to high profile projects and blue chip contractors working on some of the most prestigious construction projects currently being undertaken around the U.K.. Other projects include long term quarrying and landfill contracts in the Midlands and south of England. To this end Lynch included twenty nine tonne EC290C's and thirty six tonne EC360C's in the recent package along with a mix of fourteen and twenty one tonne excavators.

Commenting on the deal, Lynch's Sales and Marketing Manager Rob Lynch said; "There are two main reasons why we prefer operating Volvo excavators in our fleet. Firstly, we take great store in the opinions, advice and feedback from our machine operators and their assessment of the Volvo product is very high indeed. Naturally, operator comfort comes top on the list, but also the performance and power of the Volvo machines is considered superior over their competitors. Our other reason for choosing machines from Volvo is their ability to support the product 100% from their support centres. Their 'Yes -can do' approach exactly mirrors our own ethos with our customers," he continued.

Safety and Environmental compliance have taken top priority in Lynch's strategy for 2008. Both areas are seen as the key performance indicators for the Company as it targets attaining accreditation for its tailored management systems, as well as working in partnership with equipment manufacturers to reach higher standards. "Working in partnership with our preferred suppliers to achieve those solutions and needs are becoming pre-requisites in our decision to purchase," continued Rob. "We recognize Volvo Construction Equipment is one such supplier that shares these similar core values."

Besides the recent investment in plant, L Lynch Plant Hire has acquired a bespoke four acre freehold site located at Stanmore, just to the north west of its existing facility in Wembley. Completed at the end of September the new facility includes new office accommodation, plant yard and one acre of covered workshops.

Volvo Construction Equipment Ltd market wheeled loaders, articulated haulers, hydraulic excavators, graders, Volvo Compact Equipment and Volvo road machinery products. Nine strategically placed customer support centres and a network of compact equipment dealers ensure high quality customer support throughout Great Britain.
