Today’s industry is very different from that of the past. Remarkable changes and advancements have been made not only in terms of structure and tools but also in techniques and methods that are available. Construction activity is an important part of a country’s infrastructure and development. It generates substantial employment and provides a growth catalyst for other sectors through linkages. It is a vital activity that should be nurtured for the growth of the economy. Appropriate equipment contributes to every aspect of the completion of a project and forms an important part of the process. Equipment will either be owned or hired depending on the needs of the individual project.  Project efficiency and quality standards are maximised through mechanical equipment and can support a project if there is a shortage of skilled and efficient manpower. Complex projects using high-grade materials or large quantities of material handling will also benefit from mechanical equipment.
