Groundwork and civil engineering contractors The Knight Group using the proven and reliable Thwaites dumper range.

The Knight Group, based in Kelvedon, Essex are one of the region’s most respected groundwork and civil engineering contractors.

The business is split into a number of sectors offering a full and flexible client focused service to include ground works, civil engineering, concrete frames, structures and environmental services.

The trading and business relationship between Knight Group and Ernest Doe dates back decades, and in 2016 a new deal was concluded between the two companies to renew a large percentage of Knight Group’s dumper fleet.

Dean Braybrook, Managing Director comments, “We chose Thwaites dumpers because they have a proven track record of being very cost competitive, robust and reliable and therefore suit the needs of our business perfectly.”

Dean continues, “I work closely with our Plant & Transport Manager, Sam Davies, when making large investments such as these, ensuring all angles are explored and the business is purchasing the optimal and right equipment for our needs. Thwaites are the UK market leader for site dumpers which gives us great confidence in the product and helps command even greater resale value in years to come.”

Sam Davies comments, “Ernest Doe’s Sales and Service support is second to none, and when coupled with the proven reliability, performance and residual value of Thwaites site dumpers in the UK market, it makes the decision-making process of renewing a 90-strong dumper fleet that much easier. We know Ernest Doe has our business’s best interests in hand, and with a personal touch too from the friendly and helpful staff we have come to know over the years.”
