Why DPL have invested £100,000 in new machinery

DPL Steel Buildings Invest in New Machinery

Despite being a small company, DPL know it is important to invest in machinery and equipment.

DPL have invested £100,000 in a new access machine, site Telehandler, and work van in 2014.

Directors David and Peter Lovegrove said that despite being a small company, they know it is important to invest in machinery and equipment and here’s why.

Customer satisfaction

Everything we do at DPL is focussed on delivering the highest quality products, service and customer experience.  There are many companies supplying steel buildings in the UK, but what differentiates DPL is our attention to detail and the time we spend with our customers making sure they get the right building for their needs.  Most important of all we deliver on our promises.

One promise we make regularly is delivery times.

Delivering on time

Like many businesses we hire equipment when needed, and this serves us very well.  However, when we are working to a deadline having our own equipment gives us the flexibility to push resources to where they are needed the most.

Having our own Telehandler ensures we have the essential equipment to get the job done at the right time.  This helps us keep our customer promises to deliver on time.

Safety first

Health and safety is an absolute priority for DPL and our customers.  All the equipment we use, either owned or hired, will conform to the latest health and safety standards.  There is an added safety benefit to owning our own equipment.  Familiarity. Our team are accustomed to the controls and we can offer additional training whenever it’s needed.  This is especially important as our team is growing.

Why we still hire machinery

Our business and team is growing and to ensure we have the right level of equipment to fulfil our building commitments is essential.  By hiring additional machinery when needed gives us the flexibility to move machinery from site to site when required, whilst reducing the risk of having under-utilised machines.

This is essential to ensure we remain competitive. An underutilised machine will add to our overhead and impact our ability to offer competitive pricing, something we work very hard to avoid.
