Volvo appoints Rock solid new utility equipment dealer


Bo’ness-based Rockbreakers UK has been named as Volvo Construction Equipment’s utility equipment dealer for Central and Southern Scotland.

Managing director Jason Easton founded the business a decade ago and has enjoyed success as a heavy hydraulic attachments dealer for Atlas Copco.

He said, “Up until now our core business has been the sales, hire and repair of a whole range of hydraulic attachments including munchers, hammers, shears, magnets and associated equipment for the plant industry in Scotland.

“With a desire to expand our business still further we saw the addition of a machine franchise as a logical extension to our company and are pleased that we have been able to add another quality brand to our portfolio.”

Rockbreakers will be responsible for the sales and after-market support for the full range of Volvo utility equipment covering Fife, Argyll, the Central Belt and the whole of the Borders in Southern Scotland.

Included in this are compact excavators from 1.5 to 8.8 tonnes; compact wheeled loaders up to 1.0m³ capacity and tandem rollers.

Volvo’s Northern dealer development manager Charlie Flaws commented, “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Jason and his team into the world of Volvo.

“Jason has ambitious plans for his new venture based on offering quality products with a first class after sales support.

“We will be working hard together to ensure that we maintain and enhance our position as a leading supplier in this extremely important area.”
