Construction and quarrying firm Gallagher Group has invested nearly £1million in a new fleet of diggers.

The Maidstone-based civil engineering, aggregates, building and property business has added 12 new machines.

The eight 20-tonne ZX210 and four new eight-tonne ZX85 Hitachi excavators mean the firm now has more than 40 diggers.

Gallagher Group chief executive Nick Yandle said: “This latest excavator expenditure highlights our long-standing commitment to quality.

"Through our continued investment inplant we ensure that we efficiently provide exceptional levels of delivery to all our clients across the region."

The move comes shortly after the company spent £100,000 on a precision, stone-cutting primary saw.

The specialist, super-sized saw has been installed at Hermitage Quarry in Barming, near Maidstone.

It is equipped with a three-metre diameter blade that can cut Kentish Ragstone, the hard grey limestone used for stone building across the county.

Mr Yandle added: "We believe strongly in continually investing in new, state-of-the-art machinery.

"With the recent investments in the saw and the 12 new excavators, we remain perfectly placed to meet the needs of our ever-expanding list of clients, providing them with a truly top quality service across the sectors in which we operate."
