And if that means the purchase of a new machine to meet a client request, that is what it will do.
Not only is the company constantly upgrading its fleet and ensuring the most professional working strategies, but the fleet is also continually growing.
Building strong stakeholder partnerships in business is another key to long-term success and the relationship between Fleck Earthmoving and LiuGong equipment and its associated support teams has been close to a perfect match.
Fleck Earthmoving was established in 1988 by original owner Jamey Flecknoe, however, under new Director, Danny Kalischer, and Group Operations Manager, Mike McFarlane, the business has quickly grown from eight machines in its fleet to more than 80.
Based in Box Hill, north-west of Sydney, it is now largely a wet hire company with 64 operators in the field and three in the office, while it also incorporates several other businesses including NextGen Earthworks, NSW Plant Haulage and its newest division, Fleck Plant Hire, which services all dry hire requirements.
The Fleck Earthmoving Group has a fleet of excavators ranging from 0.8 tonne up to 50t, plus dump trucks, dozers and posi track Loaders. Jobs can include everything from backyard swimming pools and redesigns to major agricultural works, complete with the floating of machines, transport and dirt removal in trucks and trailers.
Mike said for LiuGong excavators, the business has maintained a great relationship with Liam King and the team at Sydney dealership, Pacific Machinery Group, where he said the aftercare and support had been amazing. In fact, so much so that he quipped he would prefer they did not contact him, because it cost the business a new machine every time.
Mike recalled Liam’s encouragements to consider the LiuGong excavators and he advised Liam that when they did make the step, “they would be coming in hot,” however he said Liam and the team had been equal to the task and gone above and beyond.
“We were up north on the Moonee Moonee Bridge and I told Liam I needed a 30-tonner delivered Monday to the (Hunter) Valley,” Mike said.
