FM Conway buys 38 JCBs


Civil engineering contractor FM Conway has invested £1.5m in the purchase of 38 JCB machines.

The new arrivals include excavators ranging from one to 22 tonnes and several JCB 3CX backhoe loaders.

The machines, supplied by dealer Greenshields JCB, will be working on highways and public realm projects across London.

FM Conway plant manager John Tobin said: “We chose JCB because of the close working relationship that has developed over many years and the strong support network from our dealer Greenshields JCB. They understand that downtime equals money to our business, and always react quickly.

“A key feature of the JCB models is that they do not rely on the diesel particulate filter associated with other machines. We also benefit from the JCB LiveLink system which we use to monitor fuel consumption and idling times on the JCB JS excavators. LiveLink also provides an important security tool for us, as well as helping with maintenance.

“We work with many boroughs across London carrying out vital highways and public realm works and these new machines will help us continue to provide these important services. The larger machines especially will prove very popular with our civil engineering division and with the teams at our recycling facilities.”
