CHC invests in Volvo Construction Equipment products

Cheetham Hill Construction Ltd (CHC) of Bury Lancashire has taken delivery of eight new A30E articulated haulers and an EC460C Mass excavator as it grows its fleet of mobile plant.

Cheetham Hill Construction Ltd of Bury Lancashire are no strangers to running Volvo articulated haulers and more recently Volvo excavators with favourably results in terms of fuel consumption and cost per tonne moved. And according to plant director Sean Isherwood, the thirty tonne A30E has become the optimum sized hauler for the majority of the contracts currently undertaken by CHC and their regular client base. “In general we see job sites getting smaller and typically we work on landfill sites, land reclamation projects, quarrying and utility contracts. This coupled to the predominantly wet British weather favours a medium capacity truck fitted with floatation tyres and the A30E fits the bill,” he said. “This latest package reflects CHC’s strong position in a troubled market and a commitment to provide new and productive machines to our clientele operating across the whole of the UK,” he continued.

The new additions, all supplied with Volvo’s full repair and maintenance agreements bring the total of Volvo branded machines in CHC’s fleet to 50 out of a total of 100. In addition they are fitted with the ‘Caretrack Advanced’ monitoring system giving CHC the peace of mind that the best possible care of its investment is taken with a regular, scheduled maintenance programme using genuine Volvo parts and lubricants. “Again we have been impressed by the way Volvo Construction Equipment embraces us, to work through any issues. They nurture a positive working relationship with us on both sales and after sales service,” said Sean Isherwood. “We are also confident of sound residual values when we come to replace and renew the equipment in three years time since they will have been properly maintained and monitored by Volvo.”

Cheetham Hill Construction Ltd is currently undertaking civils and construction projects stretching from Scotland to the Midlands including land reclamation, landfill, utilities, pipeline work and groundworks as well as operating its general plant hire division. Established in 1966, the company has an annual turnover of £25m operating from its headquarters in Bury Lancashire with regional offices in South Yorkshire and Scotland and is accredited to ISO 14001, 9001 and 18001.
