D.A. Forgie, a leading machinery dealer in Northern Ireland, has secured a major new deal to supply a number of Kubota KX080-4 eight tonne excavators, fitted with the class leading Tier4 Kubota Engine, to CP Hire Ltd, extending the plant and tool hire company’s fleet to more than 80 Kubota machines.
CP Hire Ltd has been providing hire equipment to Northern Ireland for over 45 years, with depots in Belfast, Ballymena, Mid Ulster, Londonderry, Banbridge and Magherafelt. Following a significant growth in demand from customers, the deal will see D.A. Forgie supply the KX080-4 excavators, in addition to the 20 Kubota mini-excavators supplied to CP Hire previously consisting of 10 x KX61-3 and 10 x U55-4.
The KX and U series Zero tial excavator series from Kubota are some of the most reliable and durable machines on the market, utilising Kubota’s latest in house engine technology designed to offer maximum fuel efficiency, minimal noise and vibration, as well as low emission levels to meet current regulations.
Andrew Hutchinson, Managing Director at CP Hire Ltd, said: “The hire market for plant and machinery equipment within Ireland continues to go from strength to strength. Due to this, we have seen an increase in demand for construction machinery, so it made perfect sense to work alongside a well-respected dealer in D.A. Forgie to enhance our Kubota fleet.
“In addition to the performance, the reliability, efficiency and low running costs of the Kubota machines are also seen as huge benefits by our customers. At CP Hire, we pride ourselves on being able to provide solutions that won’t let our customers down, whatever the conditions, time and time again. With Kubota, this is exactly what they get.”
Ria Forgie, Branch Manager at D.A. Forgie’s new Lisburn branch, said: “We have worked in partnership with CP Hire for a number of years and it’s great to see our working relationship continue to grow stronger. By working closely with Kubota, CP Hire can not only meet the increased demand of its customers, but be safe in the knowledge that the equipment provided simply isn’t matched in the marketplace.”
