UK sales and rental firm MTS Group has purchased 30 new Bobcat compact loaders and mini-excavators worth more than £500,000 (US$ 800,000) as it expands operations in Scotland and the Midlands.

The order includes Bobcat S100 and S130 skid-steer loaders together with several models from the new 500 platform loader range launched this year, including S550 skid-steer loaders and T590 compact tracked loaders.

The company has also purchased Bobcat E08, E16, E26 and E50 mini-excavators for the hire fleet.

Peter Watson, managing director of MTS Group, said, “The Scotland expansion is to provide closer support for the many loaders we hire in this market, especially for dealing with the effects of the winter weather."

He added that MTS had been running a rental fleet of Bobcat compact loaders and excavators for more than 30 years; "Over that time, we have built up a great amount of expertise and experience in compact equipment hire and are acknowledged as the largest hirer of Bobcat skid-steer loaders and attachments in the UK, with many of the leading rental companies regularly cross-hiring from us."

MTS has its head office in Wakefield, south of Leeds in the UK.
