To assist Marshalls quarrying ventures in the north of England, as well as its landscape operation in Bedfordshire, Volvo Construction Equipment has supplied a delivery of 13 machines in the aftermath of a tender competitive process.
Marshalls specialise in producing products that create better space. The products range from landscape furniture, drainage products, natural stone paving to concrete block paving. The company has been affiliated with supplying materials for the renovation of Trafalgar Square in 2001.
In order to maintain the high standards that Marshalls have set for themselves as well as to combat the challenges of quarrying, Marshalls have enlisted Volvo’s help. Part of the delivery that Marshalls received from Volvo was the A30G and A40G articulated haulers are equipped with wear liners made from 480Bn steel, providing the protection to withstand the harsh conditions of quarries.
The two excavators (EC480E and EC750E) are likewise fitted with double grouser track pads, making them ideal for quarrying operations. The excavators have hydraulic quick couplers, heavy-duty buckets, and ripper teeth.
Category manager for Marshalls, Jonathan Galvin, says: “Selecting the right machines for our various operations involved many factors. This included site surveys, careful consideration of the machine specifications and working with potential suppliers.”
The equipment was supplied by Volvo CE’s GB dealer and included L110H and L180H wheel loaders, A30G and A40G articulated haulers, and EC480E and EC750E excavators.
Galvin added: “While the offering from Volvo wasn’t the lowest cost in regards to up-front purchasing price, when we looked at the lifetime owning and operating costs, the fuel efficiencies of the products, extended driveline warranties, residual values and the detailed servicing agreements, Volvo emerged as the clear winner.”
