First national deal for Finnpave

Cat AP500E asphalt paver

Breedon Aggregates purchase a range of Caterpillar equipment in multi-application deal

BREEDON Aggregates have purchased three new Cat AP500E asphalt paving machines from Finnpave, a new Cat 390D LME hydraulic excavator, two Cat 336EL hydraulic excavators and several quality used excavators and wheel loaders through Finning, and an Olympian GEP110-4 diesel generator from Finning Power Systems, to be stationed across several sites in the UK.

In particular, the sale of three Cat AP500E asphalt pavers represents the first national deal carried out by Finnpave, the specialist surfacing arm of Finning UK & Ireland. The units will provide Breedon Aggregates with an equipment solution from the quarry face through to the last compaction pass.


Alan Mackenzie, chief executive of Breedon Scotland, said: ‘As the largest independent aggregate supplier in the UK, it’s imperative to our operatives and our customers that we invest in the latest machinery available. The deal for this large range of Cat machinery represents a major statement for the business.’

On the paving machines in particular, he said: ‘We needed a machine with a high standard specification. The Cat AP500E met this criteria and its versatility will be crucial as two of the three pavers are going to be positioned in the Scottish Highlands. This is where the back-up support that Finning provide will also play an important role.’

Neil Dickinson, managing director of Finning UK & Ireland, said: ‘This is a further endorsement of the quality of Cat machines and the trust Breedon Aggregates have in both Finnpave and Finning.

‘Not only is this the first national deal Finnpave have delivered since becoming a dedicated Cat Paving Products supplier, but it also has generated reciprocal business across the whole company, with machines used for different applications.’
