Miller Plant today announces the completion of a year-long £1.5million plant and technology investment programme.

Customers now benefit from pioneering satellite software, designed to revolutionise earthworks and volume survey operations, and can access an even wider range of crushing and screening plant.

The latest GPS technology, now fitted in all dozers, means earthworks are far more precise and efficient than traditional methods: consistently meeting the exact specifications, grades and alignments laid out in the construction plans.

Trimble volume survey software exactly calculates the amount of material moved during earthworks: improving accuracy and transparency.

As well as an additional Liebherr dozer, Miller Plant has bought a new cone crusher and screener, making it easier for customers to use more cost-efficient recycled and sustainable aggregate.

The company expects to spend another £1.5million over the next 12 months as part of its ongoing fleet upgrade, with the focus on acquiring Euro 6 vehicles: trucks designed to practically eliminate nitrogen oxide emissions.

Ian Miller, Miller Plant managing director, said: “While we’re an established business with an enviable heritage, we’ve always led the field when it comes to ensuring our customers have the best vehicles and technology at their disposal.

“Every single one of these investments will make a marked difference in terms of safety, environmental impact and operational precision.

“This reassures the customer that our services meet their exact specifications every time.

“And make no mistake, we’re not finished.

“We’re always looking at ways to augment what we offer: standing still just isn’t an option.”
