WHC buys Thwaites dumpers to meet demand

Gloucestershire-based WHC Hire Services has concluded a deal that will add 40 Thwaites dumpers to its fleet, which now stands at 120 dumpers. The deal will see a mix of sizes from the hirers favourite 1-ton Hi-Tip through 3-ton, 6-ton Power Swivel and the industry leading 9-ton machine delivered to WHC branches, throughout Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and Oxfordshire.

The deal was agreed with WHC, Managing Director, James Clutterbuck (pictured centre), who spoke about why the company has invested to grow the hire fleet and why the business chose Thwaites. James said, “Demand through 2020 remained strong and utilisation levels became challenging, in the autumn when demand was outstripping supply, we actually had a waiting list for compact equipment.

“As we head into the spring, demand is back to those autumn levels,” James continued. “This has been largely driven by SME contractors seeing households investing in their property, thus driving demand for the 1 ton Hi-Tip, in addition to the sustained, regional, utility market, necessitating the need for further 6-ton Power Swivels”.
