Rotherham Sand & Gravel invest in another Cat machine

Paul Scholey

South Yorkshire quarry operator purchases new Cat 938K wheel loader from Finning

HAVING used Caterpillar equipment since 1971, Rotherham Sand & Gravel have demonstrated their ongoing confidence in Finning by purchasing a new Cat 938K wheel loader.

Supplying aggregates, sand, gravel, concrete and decorative stone throughout Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire, the company has a rapidly expanding operation.


Commenting on the deal, Paul Scholey, managing director of Rotherham Sand & Gravel, said: ‘Upturn in the construction sector has led to a significant increase in demand for our products. It is, therefore, vital we have the fleet of machines to match this rise in operational activity.

‘As we already have the Cat 938G and two 938H wheel loaders on site, investing in the newest 938K model was the next logical purchase. Our drivers are already looking forward to the next M-Series set for launch in March 2015.’

Mr Scholey (pictured) continued: ‘Being a pioneer of sustainable quarrying in the UK, it is not just the Cat machine’s functional performance that is important to us. With the 938K meeting the EU Stage IIIB emission requirements, this investment is in line with one of our core values: supporting the local environment.’

Jon Evans, product support account manager at Finning, added: ‘Our relationship with Rotherham Sand & Gravel is something that we value highly at Finning. The investment in the 938K demonstrates the continuing trust Paul and the family have in our Caterpillar products, coupled with the ongoing support Finning are able to provide.’
