Jewson keeps on rolling

Published:  26 September, 2012

COVENTRY: Jewson Tool Hire has purchased 40 new JCB VMT160-80 tandem vibratory rollers. They join 80 existing models to create the largest fleet of JCB Vibromax compaction equipment in the world.

Jewson Tool Hire – a core service from the UK’s leading builder’s merchant, now offers 120 of the rollers for rental. It takes the total number of JCB machines owned by Jewson Tool Hire to over 500 following several huge orders for JCB mini and micro excavators since the partnership was established in 2007. All of the machines are available to trade and domestic customers from its 250 nationwide branches.

Jewson Tool Hire director, Richard Pedersen said: “We are extremely proud to have built up the largest fleet of JCB Vibromax rollers in the world and it is a clear reflection of both our rapid growth as a business and the popularity of themodels themselves.

“Our customers recognise the JCB brand and love the fact they can now get rollers at Jewson – often hiring them alongside a JCB excavator and Thwaites dumper as a complete package for surfacing jobs. For a relatively new machine to our fleet we are extremely happy and impressed with the performance and utilisation figures.

“There were a number of reasons we chose JCB including: reliability, a proven track record, competitive pricing and a strong after sales service from our dealer Gunn JCB with whom we have an excellent relationship.”
