Warwick Ward (machinery) Ltd. was founded in 1970 by Mr Warwick Ward and has grown into the largest stockist and supplier of new & used wheel loaders, earthmoving equipment, waste recycling equipment and spare parts in Europe.
Over 200 good working loading shovels of all makes and models are always available and over 7,000 machines have been dismantled for spare parts. The family connection is still very much in evidence today. Warwick’s son’s Ashley and Matthew, both now with over 25 years service themselves at Warwick Ward, have since the year 2000 been running the company and the growth since that time has been considerable with turnover increasing to seven times the volume it was when they took over the reins from their father. The goal over this period of continued growth has been to maintain and further improve the company’s position as the market leader in its field and this has undoubtedly been achieved with yet still more potential for further growth over the years to come. The company has grown from strength to strength and continues to expand.
Expansion and diversity
In addition to the existing used equipment business the company became a fully authorised CASE construction equipment dealer in 2006. Within a very short space of time we established ourselves as one of the best performing CASE construction equipment dealers in the UK, offering the full range of new CASE equipment, products and services. In 2011 we achieved the accolade of being awarded the CASE European dealer of the year in the category of wheel loader sales – a very proud moment for the company. CASE has a long association in the construction, earthmoving and material handling sectors and is well renowned within the industry for manufacturing machines with excellent reliability, build quality and strong resale values. Since the commencement of our partnership with CASE we have year on year increased CASE market share in our designated dealer areas and our market share continues to grow. In 2015 we became the official Ecohog Windshifters Sole UK & Ireland distributor. In 2016 another exciting development at Warwick Ward took place with the acquisition of the TEREX Environmental Equipment franchise.
We are now a UK distributor for the full TEREX Ecotec Range.
The partnership with TEREX & Ecohog was in many ways a natural progression for us, as we already have very close relations with many companies large and small operating in the waste recycling sector through our connections with both CASE and our longstanding used equipment division – indeed this sector of industry has for some years now been our strongest market. The addition of TEREX & Ecohog to our portfolio has further strengthened our position within the waste sector and we have now established very strong working relationships with many of the UK’s largest waste recycling companies.
The plant hire side of the business has also continued to grow and we now offer a full range of machines for short, medium and long term hire. In addition, our service team are on hand to service with expertise all our existing customers, many of whom are now on full R&M service contracts with us. They are also happy to take on outside work when required. The parts side of the organisation has also grown phenomenally both on the supply of new and used parts. The philosophy of Warwick Ward is, and has always been, to offer excellent value for money without sacrificing quality and service. We aim to offer earthmoving equipment to suit any application and any budget. From the smallest equipment requirements to the largest wheel loaders, there can be no greater variety and choice than at our one mile long site situated in Barnsley, England.
Over the years we have supplied thousands of loading shovels and spare parts to all four corners of the world. From Europe to South America; Asia and the Far East; the Middle East to Africa and as far afield as Australia, Warwick Ward is a name synonymous with great value and quality in the field of wheel loaders, earthmoving equipment and spare parts.
