E J Civils is a groundworks company based in Lincolnshire – the company’s main source of business is groundworks for major housebuilding company Taylor Wimpey, alongside other leading developers, located in the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire areas.
Employing 48 staff – EJ Civils is never short of projects from small housing developments with 200 homes to large estates with 600 houses. The company is running five different projects currently. Infrastructure projects the company undertake prior to house building range from £6million to £20million.
Kevin Walsh Managing Director of EJ Civils explains “All of our work is ‘word of mouth’ and we are very fortunate to have such a good working relationship with Taylor Wimpey – who we do the majority of our work for.”
The company has a fleet of 20-machines ranging from three to 22 tonnes. The company’s most recent purchases were three 14 tonne Hyundai HX140L machines from Corby based Hyundai dealer, Willowbrook Plant.
The company also has a 22-tonne R220-9A Hyundai which Kevin purchased second-hand around a 1.5-years ago whilst the machine was still under warranty. Kevin said, “We were laying big pipes and we needed a bigger machine and the R220-9A came up just at the right time. Unfortunately, the demolition company who previously owned the machine went out of business.”
Kevin added, “We purchased the machine through Hyundai dealer HES Enterprises in Manchester – we got a real good bargain! There were two 22-tonne machines available, both in full demo spec, but we missed out on buying both as one was already sold – so we bought the last one. It is an excellent machine – a real work horse! The operator loves this machine and prefers it to competitor’s brands in the same
