Bedfordshire based hire company strengthens its Kubota fleet

Hire specialists BOA Plant has signaled its intention for growth throughout 2016 after agreeing a new deal with machinery dealer Shellplant for the supply of 36 Kubota excavators.

The deal, which was announced at the recent Executive Hire Show at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, will see Shellplant deliver Kubota excavators ranging from 1.5 tonne through to 8 tonne. The Kubota machines will be supplied over three tranches consisting of 25 x KX015-4, 5 x KX61-3, 5 x U48-4 and 1 x KX080-4, significantly enhancing BOA Plant’s machinery fleet.

The KX and U excavator series from Kubota are some of the most reliable and durable machines on the market to date, utilising Kubota’s latest in house engine technology designed to offer maximum fuel efficiency, minimal noise and vibration, as well as low emission levels to meet current regulations.

“We are delighted to be working with such a highly respected hire company as BOA Plant”, said Tom Haywood, Sales Manager of Shellplant, who oversaw the deal and is responsible for its ongoing management.

“As a dealer, it’s vitally important that we understand the needs of our customer base and be able to provide bespoke solutions for them. Through our strong working relationship with Kubota, BOA Plant can now reap the benefits of an excavator offering that simply isn’t matched in the market and we look forward to continuing our partnership beyond 2016.”

Jack Foster, Operations Manager at BOA Plant, said: “We pride ourselves on being able to provide our customers with the best machinery available to meet their high standards and requirements. The excavator range from Kubota offers great performance levels in the harshest environments, and by working closely with Shellplant we are now able to enhance our machinery offering.”
