Volvo endorsement from Advance

Advance Construction Scotland was set up in 1993 by Seamus Shields. From its base in Blantyre, it provides groundworks and civil engineering services. Still family run, it now covers the whole of Scotland, employs 1,400 people and has a projected turnover of £160m for 2018.

Having purchased its first Volvo compact excavators seven years ago, then again in 2012, Advance Construction Scotland has now bought another package of Volvo excavators to add to its fleet of equipment.

“Opting for Volvo has proved to be a good decision for us,” says plant manager Gareth Mollan. “The machines have performed faultlessly, they give a good return on the investment and not least have been well appreciated by our machine operators, so as we continue to expand, opting for more Volvo excavators hasn’t been a difficult decision.

“This time though, we’ve added an initial three EC140E excavators along with a 1.8 tonne EC18D and a reduced swing ECR88D and will be looking to add more Volvos in the immediate future.”

Gareth Mollan continues: “One of the key factors to our continuing success and growth is retaining good excavator operators and so we take particular notice of their opinions. Needless to say we find ourselves ordering more and more Volvo branded machines as they are much appreciated and very well-liked by the more discerning excavator operator.”
