At last week’s Plantworx Construction Equipment Exhibition, at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, Leicestershire. Lynch Plant Hire and Hill Engineering struck a deal for 50 new TEFRA Coupler’s worth £120K.
Once delivered the new TEFRA Quick Hitches will be coupled with 50 brand new Caterpillar machines which Lynch also purchased at the Plantworx exhibition in a deal worth £5.8million.
Lynch Plant Hire have been successfully working with, County Down based, Hill Engineering for many years and the synergy between the two companies continues to grow. Merrill Lynch, operations director at Lynch Plant Hire said,
“Here at Lynch we run over 1000 excavators and each of the machines are fitted with Hill’s hitches! We believe that they are the safest and most reliable available on the market. They have been tried and tested and also represent excellent value for money.”
Lynch is committed to major investment in the very latest equipment and is busy expanding its fleet to meet the demands of the company’s busy work schedule. You’ll find Lynch owned machines fitted with Hill attachments on high profile projects including Crossrail, M25 expansion, Hinkley Point and the Chiltern Railway.
The company is also looking ahead in preparation for HS2 – where Lynch is expecting a big demand for machinery and attachments – Lynch is confident that Hill Engineering can deliver.
“We like Hill’s ethos of meeting high demands,”
“we get lots of requests from customers at short notice for attachments – Hill always respond quickly and are dedicated to customer service.”
“Our clients include Skanska, Carillion and Balfour Beatty and all are happy with our choice of Hill attachments. The hitches are virtually maintenance free and provide the utmost in safety – since the dual locking quick hitch we have not had one reported incident on any of our sites.”
Ian Hll, Managing Director of Hill Engineering said,
“Hill and Lynch have one of the best relationships in the business. Lynch have been instramental in helping our business to develop and improve current products. We have a vision of what works as a business, but customers such as Lynch understand their own requirments much better. Over the past few years we have moved our focus to listening to the critical feedback presented by our customers.”
Lynch Plant Hire has also recently opened three new depots in Warrington, Dartford and a state of the art office in Hemel Hempstead.
About the TEFRA:
The safety systems in the TEFRA eliminate one of the most dangerous aspects of handling attachments, which is the risk of attachments coming away completely. Hill Engineering solved this by using a positive locking system rather than a gravity locking system, making the crucial safety feature ‘active’ and not ‘passive’ in the way it works.
Completely manufactured in the UK, the TEFRA components are cast, which means its lower in weight and higher in strength. The TEFRA fits excavators from 3 to 120 tons and is fully compliant with current safety legislation.
