Clancy Plant, established in 1962 and part of the Clancy Group of Companies,has evolved to become one of the most diverse and capable providers of assets to the utilities, rail, civil engineering and house building construction contractors in the UK, with a growing portfolio of business around the country.It puts customer service, innovation and safety at the top of its list of priorities, and prides itself in leading the way in all of those areas, which is why it chooses to invest in only the best people, plant and equipment.
The company recently acquired 12 new U27 Kubota excavators for its already extensive hire fleet – and it had no hesitation in fitting them all out with the next generation of hydraulic quick couplers from Miller UK.
The Miller GTS range has been hailed as the lowest,lightest and safest compact quick coupler on the marketplace, offering a wide range of pick-ups for any attachment within the same class – all from the comfort and security of the cab.
When the range was first launched at Plantworx in 2019, response to the product was described by the company as ‘astounding’ with ‘exceptionally high enquiries’ which were quickly turned into firm sales.
Clancy Plant was among those companies immediately attracted to the Miller GTS hydraulic quickcoupler – suitable for excavators from one tonne to6 tonne – and since then they have fitted close on 80 machines with the coupler.
We recently caught up with Clancy’s Head of Plant Lee Peddle, who explained why. “I have worked very closely with Miller UK in the past few years – their Business Development Manager Nick Kealy in particular – to try to bring some uniformity to our fleet with the Miller product.
“We are all about innovation and safety and I already was a big fan of the Miller Mate safety system which can be retro-fitted; it ensures the operator can easily couple and de-couple attachments and vitally it also prevents accidental release. The Miller Mate is a perfect complement for the GTS coupler, and working together, onsite operations can be carried out much more safely and efficiently.”Go To Next Story
