WHC’s equipment order includes Thwaites’ 1 tonne Hi-Tip model and its 3 and 6 tonne Power Swivel dumpers.

The company, which has been awarded gold awards for its safety standards by ROSPA for the past three years, said it placed the order to cater to increased demand from private residential customers.

James Clutterbuck, WHC managing director, said, “Demand through 2020 remained strong and utilisation levels became challenging, in the autumn when demand was outstripping supply, we actually had a waiting list for compact equipment.

“As we head into the Spring, demand is back to those Autumn levels, this has been largely driven by SME contractors seeing households investing in their property, thus driving demand for the 1 ton Hi-Tip, in addition to the sustained, regional, utility market, necessitating the need for further 6-ton Power Swivels”.

The new machines will be delivered by local dealer Lister Wilder to the company’s depots Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and Oxfordshire branches.
