Seven deals in four months for Aquila Construction Equipment

A leading construction equipment dealer is in seventh heaven after supplying its latest piece of state-of-the art machinery to a national groundworks company.

Aquila Construction Equipment has just sold Bloxwich-based Earthcon Ltd a CAT 305.5E CR five and half ton hydraulic excavator in the seventh deal between the companies in just four months.

Aquila sales manager Andy Rigby said the latest deal meant Earthcon had taken delivery of £170,000 of Caterpillar equipment from the company this year.

Aquila Construction was established last September and is part of the Aquila Group, one of the country’s leading experts in commercial vehicle sales, repairs and servicing.

“We are delighted with the deals we have been able to strike with Earthcon,” said Andy. “They were not using CAT equipment before so it is particularly pleasing that we have been able to build up such a good relationship with them so quickly.

“So far we have supplied them with a CAT 300.9 micro-digger and series of excavators ranging from one and a half tons to eight tons. It means that since we started in September we have completed 52 separate sales, an excellent performance in the current climate.”

Earthcon managing director Wayne Hawkins said he was delighted with the partnership he had established with Aquila.

“We had previously used different equipment but gave Aquila a chance and I have to say that Andy Rigby and his team have come up trumps. Andy is reliable, does exactly what he says he is going to do and the CAT equipment is first-class. When it comes to specifications, budgets and price comparisons you could not do better.”

Aquila has branches across the Midlands at Walsall, Tipton, Tamworth, Whitchurch, Telford and Worcester.

The company has a full range of vehicles available on site for purchase or short term hire and a dedicated Caterpillar specialist on hand to help customers source the best machine for their business.

It also offers parts delivery, late night parts counter services and highly equipped workshops across the region.

Earthcon are specialists in the design and construction of children’s playgrounds and football pitches, and work with local authorities around the country.
