ROADBRIDGE PUTS KOMATSU TO FORE IN LONGFORD VILLAGE DEVELOPMENT

 Komatsu is featuring strongly in the line-up of heavy-duty machinery assembled by Roadbridge for work on the new 395-acre Longford Forest Village being developed by Center Parcs near Ballymahon.

 Coupled with two 80 tonne PC800LC-8 excavators – the largest machines on site – latest Komatsu Dash - 11 machines purchased by Roadbridge to carry out ground works at the site include a number of PC138US-11, PC210LC-11 and PC360LC-11 units. Included also in the mix of machines acquired by Roadbridge is a number of construction site-specified Merlo P38.13 Plus telehandlers.

 The first Centre Parcs development of its kind in Ireland, the new Longford Forest project is scheduled for completion in 2019, creating around 750 new jobs during construction and a further 1,000 permanent jobs when opened.

 In other fields, Komatsu is extending its presence in agricultural and waste management applications. Recent deals reported by their distributors in Ireland, McHale Plant Sales of Birdhill and Rathcoole, have seen Thorntons Recycling acquire a WA380-8 wheel loader while All Away Waste has chosen a Merlo TF42.7-156 telehandler to complement its existing fleet of Komatsu wheel loaders.

 Elsewhere, McHale reports a number of WA320-7 and WA270-7 wheel loaders being sold to agricultural contractors.
