Brandon Hire Station has taken delivery of 70 1-tonne Hi-Tip dumpers, in a deal that will expand the company’s fleet across its vast network. The deal was facilitated by Thwaites' approved distributor for the midlands, north west and Yorkshire, BTE Plant Sales.

"We have a long-established relationship with Vp Brandon Hire Station, I am delighted to have concluded this deal and thank the management team for their continued support and confidence," said BTE Chairman, Ben Elliott. "With the marketplace strong and the outlook encouraging, we are always pleased to see major hirers such as Vp Brandon Hire Station purchasing Thwaites via BTE."

Brian Sherlock, who has led the company since 2014, said: “Thwaites have a great product. The design and build quality is second to none, with this being recognised by our customers, who find them safe and easy to operate, our engineers who find them easy to maintain and our drivers who find them safe and easy to load and deliver.

“During the pandemic customers have considered carrying out landscaping and build projects themselves, whilst others have appointed local contractors.  As a consequence this has driven demand, which has necessitated further significant investment in our Thwaites dumper fleet”.

Thwaites Deputy Chairman Ian Brown added: “I am always pleased to welcome Brian and Ben. The 1-tonne Hi-Tip dumper in this deal continues to be in high demand, with hirers recognising the value, reduced cost of ownership and great residuals the machine delivers to their business."
