Our involvement in civil engineering dates back almost 50 years, with the first generation of this family business. One of our regular clients needed a machine that could carry out some watercourse restoration works and we converted our first machine to long reach configuration to do the job. We learned quickly and developed our expertise into providing solutions for our Clients, understanding legislation, the importance of managing work, taking into account the safety and environmental risks. We now have one of the largest fleets of long reach excavators in the UK, complimented with floating plant and equipment for work on water.
We take great pride in our work and understand the need to work safely and in a professional manner. The Company has been recognised for its quality achieved in the safe and effective delivery of its operations, with a number of awards including:
ICE West Midlands Awards 2022, Sustainability Award Winner as well as overall Regional Winner for work on Marches Mosses BogLIFE
