Northern Ireland-based Sleator Plant, a specialist capital equipment provider to the construction and material handling sectors, has secured a record-breaking order for heavy–duty site dumpers.

The 70-unit order, coming from multi-national plant hire business CP Hire, will see a combination of one, three, six and nine-tonne Terex® site dumpers manufactured and supplied throughout 2016. Set to be rented and operated by site professionals across the British Isles, this is the largest site dumper supply contract agreed in Northern Ireland in nearly a decade.

Jonathan Campbell, General Manager of Sleator Plant, comments: “In 2014, we announced one of the country’s largest-ever site dumper contracts. The 54-unit deal, made by CP Hire, was nearly ten times higher than any order placed in Northern Ireland over the past five years.

“Thanks to excellent product performance, customer support, back-up, servicing, training and maintenance provision, the agreement was delivered to deadline and our relationship with CP Hire continued to grow. In fact, throughout the rest of the year, we supported the business with a selection of one-off units to service a number of new contracts and projects, taking the total supply figure to 65 dumpers.”

Campbell continues: “Twelve months later, following incremental growth by both companies, CP Hire has further grown its rental fleet and placed an order for 70 more Terex site dumpers for 2016. A sign of the UK’s recovering economy, this is a great story for the manufacturing and construction industries.”

Speaking about placing the order, Andrew Hutchinson, CP Hire’s Managing Director, said: “With a wide range of high-quality site dumper models available on short lead times, Terex was the obvious choice for us. We have a very positive relationship with Sleator Plant, our local dealer, which delivers a hassle-free service and an excellent backup and maintenance provision.”
