Kayleigh Plant Hire (KPH), one of London’s leading plant hire experts, is set for the future after investing more than £2.5million in a fleet of new excavators to meet the needs of the booming construction industry.
The investment sees KPH double its fleet with 41 Hitachi excavators from the ZAXIS series, which meet the new emissions regulations all machines operating in London must adhere to by 2019. From three-quarter tonne mini excavators to 40 tonne tracked machines, KPH can now offer a complete excavator portfolio to meet any construction site requirement – from small scale house build, drainage and road works, right up to larger infrastructure and commercial development projects. In addition to the new excavators, the full fleet comprises crushers, dumpers, road sweepers, screeners and telehandlers.
Reaffirming its commitment to providing customers with the very best equipment that’s new, reliable and above all the safest it can be, KPH worked closely with Hitachi to ensure the equipment met the highest possible level of standards. This included, for example, the retro-fitting of green seatbelt warning beacons on all its excavators and the fitting of hand rails around the super structure on the larger plant, along with rotation circuits on all machines over eight tonne.
Stuart McCabe, KPH Plant Manager, said: “It’s an exciting time in the KPH business at the moment and this investment comes after a long line of successes. We pride ourselves on leading the way for the provision of a complete equipment hire solution in the UK. Indeed, this deal is a further demonstration of our desire to lead from the front by using future-ready machines that offer the best standards of safety for operatives.
“Importantly, in addition to plant, we also hire out our own CPCS trained plant operators on ‘an operator only basis’ so we are able to deliver a full on-site solution.”
Alongside meeting the latest industry regulations, KPH’s complete fleet is supported by a comprehensive service and maintenance solution guaranteeing reliability of its machines, keeping customer’s working day and night and maximising productivity.
Martin O’Hare from Hitachi said: “The investment in Hitachi construction machinery is unprecedented in KPH’s history and we are proud to be working with such a forward-thinking company that puts a strong emphasis on high standards and customer care.”
Formed in 1993, KPH has grown from just two, wheeled excavators to become a major player in the plant hire sector in London. Its reputation for a high quality, reliable and efficient fleet, as well as high standards in customer service, sets it apart from others. The firm offers free site visits by qualified staff to advise and recommend the most cost-effective opportunities available. Not only is the hire of equipment available for self-drive and operated hire, but its own qualified team of machine operators are available for hire to other companies requiring the support of a highly competent machine operator.
