Thwaites Distributor, BTE Plant Sales, are delighted to announce their renewed relationship regarding the sale of Dumpers, to leading Yorkshire Civil Engineering contractor Watsons Groundworks Limited of Barnsley.

The initial order, covering a range of 9 tonne machines, was completed after a period of negotiation concluded by Watsons Groundworks Managing Director Carl Watson, and BTE Plant Sales Chairman Ben Elliott.

“After careful consideration we are pleased to seal this deal for a range of 9 tonne Thwaites Dumpers,” says Watson. “The critical factors were their renowned manufacturing quality, combined with the fact we can run them longer and still achieve improved residuals”.

Watsons Groundworks have over the past 20 years, worked on many of the region’s major projects and contracts. The business now employs over 50 full time staff and has grown annual sales to over £5.5m.

“We have a very loyal and dedicated workforce. Their safety and wellbeing are my primary concern,” says Watson. “All my team are properly trained and along with the machines we supply, are fully compliant to both industry and client on site regulations.”

“I really want to thank Carl for this order,” says Elliott. “I have had a relationship with Watsons Groundworks for some 20 years now. BTE are therefore delighted that Watsons have chosen Thwaites as their preferred on-site dumper, and BTE Plant Sales as their supplier. These 9 Tonne Dumpers will be on site next week working hard for Watsons in both the Housing and Civil markets. We look forward to adding further Thwaites Dumpers to their fleet over the coming year”.
