Van Groningen, which has bought six Bobcat machines, extracts around 80,000 t of iron and other metals from demolition projects every year

The company’s main business is as a subcontractor on demolition projects, responsible for removing metal from buildings, which is then traded. It has an extensive fleet of its own equipment, including excavators and truck-trailer combinations.

Of the six new Bobcat machines, five are skid-steer loaders mainly used on demolition projects to remove debris from buildings.

The sixth is a Bobcat mini-excavator, which can also be equipped with a demolition hammer.

Van Groningen started out in business over 50 years ago as an iron and metal trade company, and entered the demolition market in 2002. It extracts around 80,000 t of iron and other metals from demolition projects every year and employs 60 permanent staff members at four locations.

The skid-steer loaders purchased comprise three Bobcat S450 and two S100 models.
