Cheltenham-based Ken Pink Plant Hire has expanded their fleet of Hitachi machines with their purchase from Hitachi’s new dash-6 range of excavators, which have been designed to deliver the highest level of performance without compromising on operational efficiency.
The Hitachi Zaxis ZX350LC-6 is one of the first excavators from the new dash 6 series to be delivered in the UK and is the epitome of reliability, with incredibly versatile features that highlight its suitability for a wide range of industry solutions.
Ken Pink has been supplying plant hire equipment throughout the UK for over 30 years, specialising in earthworks and demolition. The company has grown its reputation, fleet and customer base solely from recommendations from customers who rely on Ken Pink for their support, competitive pricing and diverse range of plant. It is for this reason that Ken Pink has chosen Hitachi Construction Machinery as their main provider of machinery for their 115-strong fleet.
Speaking with Ken Pink’s Contracts Manager, Mark Roberts, he explained; “Hitachi Construction Machinery UK are our main supplier for construction equipment and our first choice wherever possible. We have a great working relationship, as they constantly provide outstanding support with quick turnarounds on requests, excellent communication and a willingness to meet our needs no matter how challenging the time frame. This is critical in our line of work.
In terms of the machines themselves, we find the Hitachi machines are extremely fuel efficient compared to others, but more significantly the major deciding factor is their residual value. The protection and security of future resell values they achieve has become so important over the past eight years given the rising costs to purchase – particularly in the plant hire sector.’’
In terms of what the future holds for Ken Pink Plant Hire Mark insists: “More of the same! As a company we have never advertised, rather we have relied upon winning and retaining customers through competitive pricing, outstanding support and a diverse range that meets the needs of both SME's and blue chip companies.
Working with Hitachi enables us to deliver these business objectives as we receive the equivalent benefits working with them as our preferred supplier.”
HCMUK Operations Director Andy Baker commented “It is a great pleasure working with Ken, Mark and the rest of the team at Ken Pink Plant Hire for all of us at HCMUK. I am confident that the new ZX350LC-6 that will be put through its paces on site over the next month will meet the expectations that Ken Pink, their operators and customers rely on from Hitachi. Everyone involved will be reporting back on its performance; and we look forward to sharing the results on the HCMUK website.”
