Cherry Hill, H.O. Penn Rescue Connecticut Job Site

Many things are in abundance at the combined site of the new Target and Lowes stores in Manchester, CT. More than 50 pieces of equipment currently prowl the grounds, for example. At least 457,200 meters (500,000 yds.) of material will be moved when all is said and done. The project itself is valued at $8 million. In fact, the only commodity in short supply is time.

Cherry Hill Construction Co. was originally called in to do excavation work solely on the Lowes site. When the contractor assigned to the Target site ran into some difficulties, Cherry Hill was enlisted to pinch hit with only three days’ notice.

With the change in plan, the company found itself with a sudden need for more equipment. “I told Paul Scott, our H.O. Penn sales rep about our needs at 5 pm,” said Robert Sacks, president, Cherry Hill. The machines, four excavators and six articulated trucks, to be precise, were delivered by the end of the following day.

“We are working seven days a week to get this job done, and Paul is in constant communication with us so that they can quickly take care of our needs,” continued Sacks.

H.O. Penn has a history of taking care of Cherry Hill’s needs. In fact, most of the equipment currently on the site was provided by H.O. Penn, either through rental or sale.

“The Cat machines that we get from H.O. Penn are serious machines that are very dependable,” explained Sacks. “We are sold on Cat and H.O. Penn, and we will continue to do business with them.” Most of Cherry Hill’s equipment is Cat.

Lou Sacks, vice president of Cherry Hill, said that “service, reliability and resale value” are what keep Cherry Hill coming back to H.O. Penn for more Cat equipment.

“The parts availability and service through H.O. Penn is tremendous. Any item we need, we always get in a day or less. We pay a little bit more for the Cat machines, but the resale value and the reliability is always there for us,” continued Lou Sacks.

While Cherry Hill keeps its Cats busy with earth moving, Southern New England Blasting has handled the extensive blasting and recycling responsibilities. All material is being crushed on site with a Nordberg 105 tracked crusher, which Southern purchased from Whitney and Son.
