Ditch Witch UK / Euro Equipment Ltd has been in the trenchless equipment business for over 25 years. In the early 1980s Managing Director Dave Holloway designed and built a small compact air compressor named ‘The Power Converter’ to power a pneumatic Mole for British Gas in South Wales. With this project proving to be a great success, Dave’s aim was to supply the complete Compressor/Mole package and trialled Moles from several manufactures before choosing a pneumatic Mole from a Company called Pierce Airrow based in Chicago.
From that day on Euro Equipment has been the Ditch Witch Equipment Dealer for the whole of the UK and Ireland, supplying and supporting the complete equipment range. Over the years we have seen the need to expand and now have a purpose built 10,000sq/ft Facility in Swansea, which includes a training centre, offices and a workshop. Also on the same site we have a 1-Acre demo ground.
Additionally on the same site we have a 4,000sq/ft plant that manufactures a soil stabilizer called Perma-soil, which enables excavated materials to be recycled, it is currently used though out the industry for applications such water meter installations and the erecting of poles.
Euro Equipment was now gaining momentum, supplying a complete Compressor/Mole Packages to most of the major utilities in the country. (Manweb, Norweb, Northern Electric, British Gas, MEB.) After a few years of being a Pierce Airrow Tooling Dealer, it was announced that Pierce Airrow was to be purchased by The Charles Machine Work Inc. (Ditch Witch) from Perry, Oklahoma.
