NIXON Hire has recently completed its biggest single order with JCB after investing in a new telehandler fleet worth almost £14 million.

The equipment rental firm has signed a deal for 235 JCB Loadalls, which will join the fleet at its depots across the UK.

The deal between Nixon Hire and dealer Scot JCB includes the full range of JCB models including the 6 metre 525-60 and the 20 metre 540-200.

Nixon Hire managing director, Graham Nixon said, “Our decision to buy JCB was based on the quality and efficiency of the product as well as the excellent aftermarket support we receive from Scot JCB throughout the UK. The machines come with class leading telematics and this is a huge benefit to our own customers.”

JCB group managing director global key accounts, Yvette Henshall-Bell said, “We have worked very closely with Nixon Hire over many years and it is fantastic for both companies that Nixon Hire has been able to place a record order with JCB.  Nixon Hire and JCB are both family-owned businesses sharing many common values and I am glad that our long-standing partnership continues.”
