Hawkes Group, based in Kettering Northamptonshire have just taken delivery of a package of Bomag compaction equipment, from local distributor Shellplant.
The package includes a BMP 8500 remote-controlled multi-purpose compactor fitted with ECONOMIZER as well as four articulated tandem rollers (one x BW 80 AD-5, two x BW 120 AD-5 and one x BW 135 AD-5). The BW 135 AD-5 was also fitted with ECONOMIZER, where the degree of compaction is measured continuously and shown to the operator on an LED display.
Founded by Reece Hawkes in 2013, Hawkes Group is now one of the leading Civil Engineering companies based in Northamptonshire.
Commenting on the purchase, Reece Hawkes says, “We were running other brands of compaction equipment and having problems, so we made the decision to purchase Bomag due to their proven reliability, renowned quality and the fact they incorporate the latest technology.”
He continues, “Shellplant, our local Bomag distributor, from whom we purchased the machines, were also an important part of the purchase decision due to their proven after sales service.”
Hawkes Group is a ‘solutions-orientated ‘company offering clients a complete one stop package from demolition to earthworks and civil engineering, eliminating the need for multiple contractors and associated overlaps in organisation and Health & Safety.
