Ardent Hire Solutions, has placed a £9m order with Marubeni-Komatsu to supply PC138US (13T), PC210LC (21T) and PC360LC (36T) machines to further grow its large excavator fleet.
Ardent’s machine fleet holding currently stands at an impressive 5200 assets. The Ardent value proposition of helping customers reduce risk, improve productivity and reduce the overall cost of operating means that the business continually invests in new machines to maintain a young average age profile and to take advantage of the latest technological advancements. This investment strategy along with a big upturn in demand means that Ardent will grow their excavator fleet by a massive 800 units this year. That excavator fleet extends right up to 36T machines.
