The Kelston Sparkes Group ha s made a s i gn i f i cant investment in Volvo with the purchase of new artculated hau l ers , excavators and loading shovels.

In all a total of six A40F art i culated haulers , two EC480D excavators and two L110G loading shovels have been purchased for several prestige contracts currently being undertaken in the close proximity to the company’s headquarters.

As a major contractor to several established companies we are commited to work as a team with our clients in delivering a quality service with experienced personnel and frst class products.
