JN Bentley is an established civil engineering and construction company, part of the global management, engineering and development consultancy Mott MacDonald. With a history that dates back to 1972, we now employ over 2,000 people across multiple sites and offices throughout the UK, offering our clients full feasibility, design and construction services.
Due to the nature of our work, we are firmly committed to safety and sustainability in all of our operations, enabling us to deliver high-quality projects consistently. With a strong portfolio of projects that span several industries, we work across the UK water sector, with environmental clients such as the EA and Canal and River Trust, as well as delivering schemes with the likes of Rolls-Royce, Magnox and more.
To accomplish such a diverse range of projects, we require an equally diverse range of vehicles, including excavators, dumpers, tractors and pickups. This is what first led us to P.V. Dobson back in 2005. We have used them as a leading supplier of vehicles and maintenance services ever since.
Understanding our commitment to quality, P.V. Dobson has consistently delivered high-specification vehicles that suit our specific needs. This includes Kubota excavators of up to 8 tonnes, dumpers of up to 9 tonnes, and a selection of tractors and pickups.
Nothing is more important to us than our people going home safe and well at the end of the day - we have always prioritised the health and safety of our team. Understanding this, P.V. Dobson has fitted every vehicle with supplementary safety equipment, including hazard detection systems, travel alarms, and green beacons attached to seat belts.
We also use P.V. Dobson for all our vehicle maintenance requirements, ensuring our vehicles can operate safely and at peak performance. This includes vehicle inspections, with detailed reports and photographic records, every 6 weeks at sites across the country, and a breakdown service with a 4-hour response time to ensure any unexpected issues are resolved swiftly.
“P.V. Dobson has been a key supplier to JN Bentley for many years, with the relationship pre-dating the 17 years I have been with the business. As our organisation has grown significantly in recent years, it has been great to see this provide P.V. Dobson with the opportunity to grow and evolve as a business too. Along with a number of other key suppliers, without the continued support of P.V. Dobson – and the partnership approach we have developed – we would not have achieved what we have to date, particularly in the construction plant arena. As a business, we are very grateful for our long-standing association and look forward to continuing the relationship into the future.”
