Reliable machinery is essential to winning important contracts, according to a leading contractor who chooses Kobelco equipment.
JBG Contractors has been performing civil works, quarrying, demolition and asbestos removal from Sydney to the far south coast of NSW for the past 20 years. JBG has been choosing Kobelco equipment for more than a decade, and manager Budd Green says this supplier partnership has been critical to JBG’s success.
“Taking advantage of Kobelco’s fuel efficient and reliable machines has enabled us to rapidly deliver large-scale projects, like upgrades to the University of Wollongong and some major government projects across the state,” he says.
“We have to stay competitive, and that means we can’t afford downtime. Our collaboration with Kobelco means serviceability isn’t an issue. They put the effort into looking after us and so we keep coming back.”
JBG Contractors purchased its first Kobelco excavator in 2006 from South Coast Trucks and Machinery in Wollongong, and has established a solid working relationship with the distributor.
