Equipment and Resources
Thompsons have always invested in the best equipment for the job.
Our modern fleet of plant & equipment numbers over 100 items of all sizes, including
- GPS- controlled dozers,
- 360° excavators,
- high-reach excavators,
- skid-steer loaders,
- robotic machines,
- loading shovels,
- dump trucks,
- various attachments,
- dust suppression equipment,
- road brush.
With a fleet of over 90 HGV tipper trucks, we are one of the largest tipper fleets in the UK.
We pride ourselves on being early adopters of leading-edge technology in our sectors. For many years, Thompsons owned the largest dozer in the UK – the CAT D10 and then the D11 – and bought the first “High-Reach” demolition excavator in the North, (and one of the first in the UK) in 1997 – the CAT 350.
Investing in the best technology continues. The fuel savings and enhanced productivity from our new hybrid crushers and Euro 6 engines in our HGV fleet are already justifying our policy to buy the best, not the cheapest.
Having the right team and the best equipment makes us one of the most complete demolition, earthworks and site preparation teams in the country.
