An impressive machinery order to mark the start of Kyle Hendry’s tenure, as his father, Will, starts a well-earned retirement, saw the recent delivery of a Bomag bw120 and bw80, Thwaites 3 tonne and 6 tonne dumpers plus an Atlas Copco xas68 with a selection of low vibration tex breakers.
The plant will be used on recently won projects with a number of new clients for Core Construction, under the stewardship of new Managing Director, Kyle Hendry, ably supported by his sister Karis.
Core Construction is a groundworks contractor based in Witham, Essex. Having formed in September 2011, this is their tenth year of trading, and they have grown from strength to strength during that time. When Will Hendry formed the company, it was him and one other – they now have over 50 operatives, own a lot of their own plant and equipment and cover all of Essex and the bordering counties. Core Construction carry out work for a range of clients in the residential, commercial, educational, industrial and healthcare sectors.
Having recently retired, Will has handed the reigns over to his son Kyle who is supported by his sister Karis and the rest of the team. As a family run business, tradition and loyalty is particularly valued. They have a longstanding relationship with Ernest Doe & Sons that dates back years. Will’s father and Kyle and Karis’s grandfather, Basil, was from a farming background. Trading as R M Hendry & Sons and working alongside his three brothers, they operated on the Roundbush Farm just outside of Maldon and used to purchase a lot of their agriculture equipment from the Ulting branch. In keeping with tradition, Will continued to use Ernest Doe’s services from the 1980’s onwards for construction equipment whilst working for various companies in the industry.
They have purchased excavators, dumpers, rollers, compressors etc and have always enjoyed a “fantastic” service from Ernest Doe & Sons. “Our main dealings have been with either Andy Parnham or, in recent years, Nigel Booley – both are a credit to the company and have always been honest, straight and fair with us”, says Kyle. “Hopefully as we evolve and grow in the coming years, we can continue to do business with Ernest Doe and build on what is already a good, well established relationship.”
We wish Will a long, happy and healthy retirement and we wish Kyle, Karis and all at Core Construction a successful future as they enter the next stage of their business.
