🚧 Safety First at Hanson Quarry! 🚧

In December 2023, Hanson Quarry embraced a unique safety initiative led by Quarry Manager, Jarrod, with the arrival of their new ZX890LCH-5 BE. Taking safety inspiration to the next level, the counterweight of their latest machinery was transformed into a vibrant canvas, painted and hand-printed by the Hanson staff and their families.

This heartfelt project serves as a powerful reminder of the core reason behind their unwavering commitment to safety: ensuring that everyone returns home safely to their loved ones. It's more than just policy; it's about protecting the family—both at work and at home.
