Lynch places 22-unit Atlas Copco order
By Sarah Ann McCay26 June 2013
UK rental firm Lynch Plant Hire and Haulage has added 22 Atlas Copco hydraulic breaker and compactor attachments to its fleet, many of which are already in use on the Crossrail project in London.
The purchase order included five MB 1200E medium breakers, six MB 750E medium breakers, ten SB 302 small breakers and one HC 350 compactor.
The Atlas Copco order is part of a £12 million investment in new equipment by Lynch Plant Hire over the past 12 months, and the company is planning to make an even larger purchase of Atlas Copco products in the near future.
“We have chosen to invest in Atlas Copco equipment because our rigorous testing of the company’s products has confirmed that they provide excellent performance and reliability in even the toughest of operating conditions,” said Merrill Lynch, operations director of Lynch Plant.
“In fact, the dependability and ruggedness of the Atlas Copco products are especially important for the Crossrail project, because the large amount of dust and the high temperatures in the tunnels means that they present a particularly difficult operating environment for all types of construction equipment – only the very best survives in these conditions,” he added.
Further additions to the Lynch fleet are earmarked for use in the construction of the new nuclear power station at Hinckley Point near Bristol.
