A leading Mauritian building and civil engineering firm has placed its largest ever equipment and attachments order – with a deal for JCB equipment worth Rs60 million.

The massive investment has seen Best Construct order 16 new machines in total. Supplied by MECOM, the full line-up includes: 4x JCB 85Z-1 midi excavators, 4x JCB 86C-1 midi excavators, 4x JS140 tracked excavators and 4x JCB 3CX backhoes, the latter being delivered in July 2017. All the midi excavators will be equipped with compactors for the first time in Mauritius.

This milestone order takes Best Construct’s JCB fleet to a total of 33 machines, with 70 machines in total working across a dozen of Mauritian sites at any one time. The latest arrivals will be put to work across the Island on a one billion rupees water pipework rehabilitation programme aiming at giving 24hr access to drinking water for the whole Island population.

The Best Construct executive team visited various JCB factories in the UK in July accompanied by Jean-Luc Mamet, MECOM’s Sales Manager for JCB and JCB’s Business Development Manager for Africa, Andrew Boyers.

Best Construct’s Executive Director, Dayen Murden said: “The newly delivered 3CX are performing well as usual, returning good fuel economy and proving popular with our operators for their smooth operation and all-round capabilities. We decided to order the new compact excavators as we are going to operate on various sites with space constraints and within residential areas where noise pollution is going to be an issue. The new models are very silent and the decision to buy exclusively JCB gives us consistent control systems across the fleet – so operators can easily switch between machines and on top of that the LiveLink system is proving to be a very productive monitoring system”.

“We have always found JCB products to be reliable and well-priced, with strong residual values and we receive great support through our long-standing relationship with our local dealer MECOM.”

Best Construct was founded in 2002 by Dayen Murden and now employs 400 people. Its core services include: Drain works, infrastructure works for social housing projects, road construction and construction of residential plots.
