B&W will take delivery of 40 of the six-tonne TA6 dumpers and 20 of the nine-tonne TA9 dumpers over the coming weeks. Both models are forward tippers.
The machines are being supplied fully liveried with B&W branding and with a servicing, parts and back-up package.
The order is a timely vote of confidence in the Coventry factory that is in the process of being sold by Terex to Mecalac of France.
B&W, based in Blackburn but with branches in Keighley, Northwich and Southampton, has bought the dumpers as part of a move to expand its hire fleet.
Norwest Plant Managing Director Jonathan Campbell, at, commented: “Although the contract was hotly contested, our well-earned reputation for quality service and a close working relationship with B&W helped to secure the agreement. We are well known in the compact marketplace for supplying excellent products, providing expert equipment servicing solutions and offering a comprehensive product parts and back-up support service. This is another key reason behind our ongoing success and played a key part in the contract with B&W.
“Since joining the Terex global distributor network, we have worked in close partnership with the manufacturer’s Coventry team to provide our loyal customer base with the latest compact plant equipment and state-of-the-art on-site technology. This is just one of the resulting supply contracts.”
Paul Macpherson, sales and marketing director of Terex Construction’s Coventry facility, added: “Norwest is well renowned for delivering exceptional service – one of the key characteristics that we look for in distributors of the Terex brand. We’re delighted to see this pay off with such a significant order.”
