According to CRL, Construction Insurance Specialists, construction output in the UK has experienced it’s biggest decline since August 2012. This perhaps reinforces concerns that economic growth for the first quarter of 2018 has been slow. Figures released by the Office for National Statistics indicate a decline of 2.7% in the first three months of the year. This is the largest 3 month reduction since 2012, driven by lower levels of repair and maintenance as well as new construction.
Obviously the continuing bad weather at the start of the year would have definitely played a part and indeed Keley Plant Hire had a few issues getting machines out and about as well as staff into the yard. However, overall this Horsham plant machinery company has been going from strength to strength, having one of our busiest years to date.
This will partly be due to the amazing response we have had to the new electric diggers and electric dumpers we have taken into stock. They have been booked out continuously since their arrival which is great news.
Perhaps the south east of England was also not hit as hard with bad weather, as areas in more northern counties. Although there was great excitement to have a bit of longed for snow! However, the south east recovered quickly (it never lasts long here!) and normal service was resumed.
Along with all the standard machines we have in stock, including telehandlers and rollers, you also have the choice of standard or hybrid mini diggers as well as standard or hybrid dumpers.
