Digger-maker JCB has delivered a fleet of 29 brand new machines to a Scottish company – and all are now busy working on projects across the country.
Malcolm Group, which is based in Linwood near Glasgow, is a family-owned logistics, construction and maintenance services specialist which celebrates its centenary next year.
As the company gears up for its special birthday in 2021, it has purchased a fleet of JCB tracked and wheeled excavators, backhoe loader, wheeled loader, Teletruk, and Loadall telescopic handler models made at JCB’s plants in Rocester, Uttoxeter and Cheadle.
The machines have been supplied by JCB dealer Scot JCB.
Malcolm Group chief executive officer, Andrew Malcolm, said: “We choose JCB machines because of the fuel efficiency which reduces the operating costs for not only us as a hirer, but also benefits our customers in reducing their site costs.
“Our service from Scot JCB has always been first class. They provide extensive coverage, and back-up across Scotland with an excellent parts service. They understand our requirements and are always striving to excel in their service.”
Malcolm Group has already put the machines to work on projects including drainage, foundation digging and road building.
