HEAVY INVESTMENT FOR HOULIHANS IN 11 MACHINE JCB X SERIES DEAL
One of the South East’s leading construction firms has bought a fleet of JCB excavators including 11 new JCB 140X tracked excavators.
Sunbury on Thames-based Houlihans has purchased the new JCB 140X models and two new 16-tonne JS160 excavators, all supplied by dealer Greenshields JCB. A repeat JCB X Series customer, the new additions take the groundworks specialist’s total machine line-up to more than 30 JCB machines.
Houlihans works with the majority of leading housebuilding firms operating in the South East and the new JCB excavators will be used for road, drainage and foundation work on their new build developments across the region.
Houlihans Managing Director, Richard Knight said: “We chose to invest in JCB based on a superb relationship built over many years. JCB’s service and support is second to none which demonstrates not only its passion and commitment to its products but also to its customer base as well.
“JCB’s research and development work for the X Series range has resulted in a great product and it is clear they have listened to their customers. We received great feedback from the market, and we recognised the enhanced build and material quality the new X Series machines bring.
“Performance of the excavators has been excellent, as has been the feedback from our operators who have highlighted improved comfort, control and stability which give them real confidence in the machine.”
Founded in 1972, Houlihans has grown into an £85m construction business with over 500 employees. It delivers housebuilding, civil engineering and concrete frame services across Oxfordshire, West Berkshire, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, London, Kent, and Surrey.
