Major investment in the Nixon Hire Fleet

19 May 2011
2011 is set to be a year for serious equipment investment for Nixon Hire. We’ve budgeted for £7 million capital expenditure on new equipment to maintain a modern fleet of equipment from leading brands with latest safety and environmental features. In January, we ordered 100 mini excavators from Volvo including EC15, EC27, EC55 and ECR88 models, the latter two models being fitted with fully automatic quick hitches and boom safety valves.

The investment also includes our other core plant products as well as a new range of eco welfare units, welfarevans and portable toilets. We are also investing heavily in our transport fleet, replacing delivery vans, 14 LGV’s and 20 toilet service vehicles.

Chris Nixon commented on our ambitious investment plans: We recognise the importance of continual investment in our infrastructure to ensure we have a modern, reliable and efficient fleet of service vehicles in order that we continually improve on ambitious service KPI’s. During 2010, the company averaged a 48 minute response time to breakdowns across its depot network.”

An increasing proportion of our large plant now features Nixon Track, a unique tracking and monitoring system that can be managed online by Nixon customers. Ask the Hire Desk for more information on Nixon Track next time you order with Nixon Hire.
