Carlisle-based Lloyd Ltd, the authorised Bobcat dealer for northern England and southern Scotland and recent Service Dealer award winner, has won an order for 50 Bobcat E17 mini-excavators for Svella Connect, also based in Carlisle, a provider of critical digital infrastructure, including fibre broadband networks.

As well as the 50 mini-excavators, Svella has also purchased a matching trailer for each machine from Lloyd Ltd. These E17-trailer combinations are being used by Svella to assist them in providing a range of digital support services to local authorities and communications providers, including Virgin Media O2, Openreach and CityFibre.

The E17s will be used by the mobile teams at Svella to help dig trenches in which to lay the cables while the trailers will transport them from site to site. 

Lloyd Ltd’s chief executive, Barry Lloyd, said, “It is exciting to be able to work with another local business to deliver the solution they need to support their growing operations. This is the largest single order for Bobcat machines and trailers we have ever had, which shows how significant Svella’s investment is and the extensive scope of the work they will be carrying out across the country.  

“We thank them for their business and look forward to continuing to work with them as their operations expand.”
