Following the success of last year’s plant acquisition with local dealer Marubeni Komatsu, Owen Pugh and Co have embarked on another mass acquisition exercise. This time purchasing 10 new excavators. The equipment ranges in size from 13T-30T and is spec’d to meet the requirements of the Highways England “Raising the Bar” standard. Changing the profile of our fleet has allowed us to increase the capability of it. We have incorporated a number of reduced tailswing excavators as well as Prolec height and slew restriction. Purpose built demolition spec excavators have been brought in to meet the needs of our demolition team but the most exciting additions are the two PC210 LCI excavators which incorporate integrated machine control technology. This innovation keeps us at the very forefront of technological advancement giving us capability that none of our local competitors currently possess. The technology allows for greater control, efficiency and monitoring of production onsite giving benefit to all parts of the Owen Pugh Group.
