Ambitious Growth Plans

Ambitious Growth Plans

Plant hire specialists Morris Leslie Plant Hire Ltd (MLPH) has invested in 175 new Kubota mini-excavators in the last 12 months to help support major plans to expand its operations throughout the UK.

The company, which has national coverage through its extensive depot footprint acquired three new depots in 2013 and is looking to build on this further and increase its network in 2015.

As part of this growth strategy, MLPH relies on high quality machines from manufacturers such as Kubota to meet the needs of its customer base. This latest order of Kubota’s market leading range of high performance excavators includes machines ranging from its super compact K008-3 range, right up to the 8-tonne KX080-4.

Graham Ogilvie, Group Operations Director at MLPH, comments: “The last year has been an extremely busy and positive period for the group. In 2013, we acquired three new depots, which has resulted in heavy investment in plant equipment. In addition to servicing new depots, we always aim to replace and update our plant on an ongoing basis to ensure we have one of the youngest and most modern fleets in the industry.

“For the last four years Kubota has been a major supplier and one of the group’s main excavator partners. We always receive excellent feedback from our customers as Kubota is considered by the industry to be exceptionally reliable with little to no downtime. Just one of the reasons why we keep ordering more.

“Moving forwards, we intend to maintain the momentum with plans in place to expand the group throughout the UK as we aspire to increase our depot footprint further. New plant will be an essential element of this plan and we envisage capital expenditure for the group will increase by 30% to £45 million. In fact, we are just about to place a series of orders for another 1000 machines.”

Neil Winfield, Business Development Manager at Kubota, adds: “Morris Leslie Plant Hire is a good example of how the construction industry is thriving again and it is great to be part of the group’s success story. Growing and strengthening our relationships with key partners like MLPH is hugely important to us and we’re delighted that they’ve chosen Kubota to help support their expansion plans.”
