Lynch ‘meets hire demands’ and spends £15 million

Plant hire business L.Lynch is a company living up to its new motto ‘meeting hire demands’. Despite the industry problems over the past two years, the company will continue to spend about £15 million this year on new equipment further reducing its fleet’s average age from 18 months.

“Customers benefit from a very young fleet through improved reliability and better corporate image,” said director Robert Lynch. “At the moment the average age of our 1,800 mixed fleet items is about 18 months old, but we hope to reduce this even further with more new purchases.”

Latest fleet additions include Thwaites Alldrive three and six tonne dumpers which have proved to be the most popular rental sizes. Lynch has about 250 dumpers in total – the majority being Thwaites machines – ranging from one to nine tonnes. Its largest machines – the 9 tonners – were purchased early last year extending its range capacity.

The company is well known for its excavator and dumper hire, always trying to put the machines out as a combination – dumpers up to 9 tonnes with excavators up to 14 tonnes.

For many years Lynch’s head office was in the shadow of the old Wembley Stadium but expansion meant a move into purpose-built offices and workshops in nearby Stanmore – the hub of its UK activities. A second depot is situated in Northampton although this is also undergoing expansion in size and facilities to cope with company growth.
