Lafarge has awarded Babcock International Group a £100 million ten year contract to provide a fleet managed service for its Heavy Mobile Equipment (HME) located across its aggregate and cement sites in North America.
The programme follows a £50 million fleet management contract awarded to Babcock in July 2011, which covers Lafarge’s aggregate and cement sites in the UK.
Babcock is delivering a whole lifecycle approach to managing Lafarge’s fleet of vehicles and equipment, from procuring and supporting the equipment through to arranging equipment disposal. The contract covers HME including vehicles such as loaders, heavy rigid and articulated trucks, excavators and bulldozers.
Neal Misell, Babcock’s Managing Director, Mobile Assets, said: “This contract marks a significant milestone with Lafarge. Following the successful UK roll out, our dedicated team in North America is ready to deliver the highest level of support to Lafarge’s aggregates and cement businesses, enabling transformation in the way the fleet is operated and managed.”
