Based in Northern Ireland, the company’s purchase consists of 85 of Mecalac’s ROPS model and 10 of the manufacturer’s cabbed units.

John Rawnsley, Managing Director of CP Hire, said, “Our latest site dumper order comprises a mix of one, three, six and nine-tonne ROPS models, alongside a number of Mecalac’s new MDX cabbed units. Our experience with Mecalac equipment has always been first-rate.”

The order was negotiated by dealer Sleator Plant, which had previously supplied CP Hire with more than 250 Mecalac site dumper units. According to equipment provider Sleator Plant, the multi-million-pound deal will significantly expand the size of CP Hire’s rental fleet and increase the availability of the latest dumper models and equipment technologies for its customers.

Jonathan Campbell, Dealer Principal at Sleator Plant, said, “We are very fortunate to have a strong partner in Mecalac, as the team appreciates the importance of tight production timescales and was able to guarantee delivery – for the entire order – in Q2 2019.”

The new machines will be rented across the British Isles.
