It is now 70 years since the first Mecalac dumpers (branded Benford at the time) were first manufactured and the range has continued to evolve

French firm Mecalac is celebrating the 70th anniversary of its site dumper range. The machines were originally licenced under the Benford brand and the company’s manufacturing operation in Coventry has assembled thousands of models since the very first unit rolled off the production line back in 1953.

These models still offer robust design and high performance, but now feature a range of technologies to maximise efficiency, productivity, safety and comfort for the operator.

To celebrate the manufacturing milestone, every site dumper sold from stock between now and 31st December will come with £70 worth of Mecalac branded merchandise. In addition, Mecalac will donate £70 to The Lighthouse Club – a charity that provides emotional and financial support for construction professionals suffering from mental health.

Heath Davies, general manager at Mecalac Construction Equipment UK, commented: “Since developing our very first site dumper in 1953, we’ve been hugely proud to manufacture some of the market’s most acclaimed machines.  

Mecalac site dumpers available are from the ROPS TA range, and the MDX cabbed range, which are ready now from dealerships this year.
