Established in 1976 and based in Lancashire, our long-standing customer Barnfield Construction is a leading provider of best value construction services, offering practical solutions to a range of new and refurbishment building contracts.
The company has recently invested £1 million in 20 new JCB machines: thirteen 535-125 Hi-Viz telehandlers, three 531-70 telehandlers, three 540-180 Hi-Viz telehandlers and one 525-60 Hi-Viz telehandler. The machines were delivered in December 2019 and January 2020 and will be used on their thirty industrial, commercial, retail, leisure and residential construction sites across the UK.
Simon Haworth, Plant Manager at Barnfield Construction, said: “We’ve found the customer service has always been very good from Gunn JCB, as has the quality of the machines. In the 4 years’ ownership of the previous fleet, there have been no issues or faults so these factors played a large part in our decision to choose JCB again for our new fleet. Richard Hadfield has been great to deal with and provided a high level of customer service throughout the sales and delivery process.”
The £80 million turnover contractors, investors and developer are currently on site delivering mixed use schemes nationwide such as: Euro Garages, Helsby Community Sports Centre, Hampton by Hilton, The Range, Premier Inn, Reel Cinema, Kamani Property, Burnley FC, Northlight and a variety of residential sites for their public and private sector partners, together with their Barnfield Homes brand.
