Sussex-based groundworks business adds cutting-edge piling rig to their industry-leading fleet


This month, the Sussex-based groundworks contractor Performance Foundations, has unveiled a brand-new rig in their fleet of piling equipment; the Geax EK75. By investing in the latest machinery tech, Performance Foundations can take on larger, more complex piling and groundworks projects and operate in a more sustainable, environmentally-friendly way.

In addition, thanks to the Geax EK75’s increased efficiency, and modern engine, the rig has a much lower environmental impact than traditional construction machinery, and it is a much quieter rig to operate, resulting in less noise pollution overall. The Geax EK75 is one of the newest piling rigs available in the industry, having only in production for a few years, and Performance Foundations is now one of the few construction and piling companies in the UK with such a versatile rig on their fleet!

Adam Gander, Managing Director at Performance Foundations, comments:

“Renewing the fleet of equipment is crucial to us at Performance Foundations. Conscious of both the environment and our staff, by investing in the future with the latest machinery, we can deliver high impact results with a low impact on the environment thanks to the Geax EK75’s lower emissions. Plus, using state-of-the-art machinery is more comfortable for our staff to operate, creating a more ergonomic environment. In addition, the Geax EK75 will allow us to be more competitive and versatile, taking on larger and more complex projects.”

Based in Haywards Heath, Sussex, and operating throughout London and the South-East as one of the leading piling companies in the region, Performance Foundations is a family-run business with over 45 years of experience working in the construction industry. They provide piling services to both residential clients and contractors at new build developments, for local authorities, architects, engineers, and public infrastructure.

By investing in the Geax EK75 rig, Performance Foundation isn’t just able to be more competitive when tendering; they’re also able to offer their customers increased versatility, larger piling capacity and the ability to take on more significant projects.
