Renowned for being experts in construction and demolition, the TRU 7 Group have recently launched a new sector in their business, TRU Plant. This is the latest move in the growth story that has seen TRU7 strengthening its offering in the construction world. With a complete range of quality plant equipment, from excavators and dumpers to telehandlers and ancillary equipment, they offer plant hire machinery on a self-drive or operator basis and available for hire nationally.

In support of TRU Plant’s rapid expansion, demand for Miller UK’s PowerLatch couplers has continued to soar after the company have joined forces with plant hire company. The investment began earlier this year when TRU Plant invested in more than 200 new Volvo machines ranging from 3 to 48 t. Its desire to use the best products in the industry led it to the recent order with Miller for all heavy excavators to be kitted out with bespoke colour coded British made buckets and PowerLatch couplers from Miller. The colour coded PowerLatch couplers and bucket heads were a specification during the initial order with Miller to help operators to identify weights machines per weight thus offering safety, convenience and timesaving onsite. Bespoke part numbers were created specifically for TRU Plant to meet their needs and offer an exceptional level of service throughout.

Operations manager at TRU7, Jake Nicholls, said: “Miller has been outstanding in helping us kit out the machines quickly and efficiently. We specified bespoke part numbers with colour coded couplers and bucket heads and the quality and service has been outstanding. We are happy, as are our customers with the Miller couplers; it complements the high quality of our brand new Volvo machines. We look forward to continuing working with Miller on future projects.”
