ROCKHIT Makes an Impact!

When it comes to innovation Design Engineers Webster Technologies punch above their weight. Headed by Chartered Engineer Ian Webster, the Sheffield family business has managed to ride the ups and downs of the construction world through a combination of shrewd changes in their business model and an unwavering focus on innovation through the design and development of new products.

Their latest offering is a game changing hydraulic breaker with high performance and reduced environmental impact.   Funding from the UK government innovation agency together with significant self-funding has enabled Ian and his team to translate a good idea through to a working prototype and now a production model ready for its soft launch in the UK.  

 Belinda Naylor, Business Development Manager said “Hydraulic breakers are a very important tool on job sites. They’re a real work horse but very noisy.  High Productivity is paramount in helping achieve project budgets that are constantly under pressure – you only need to look at the financial challenges associated with delivering some of the huge infrastructure projects like Hinkley Point and HS2.  

Belinda went on to say “The Rockhit has over 3 times the energy of a conventional breaker and doesn’t need to hit as frequently so the noise is much more tolerable.  It also uses less fuel and doesn’t need to be constantly greased – in a nutshell our innovation ticks the box for helping our customers to achieve more with less.
