Our story – from muck on the boots to cutting edge technology at our client’s fingertips!

Ecovolve is a unique Irish based business that specialises in compact electrical/green ecoplant machinery. After a detailed design and development process the company launched the world’s first high tip electric dumper in 2015, which it exports worldwide.

Our background

Prior to establishing Ecovolve in 2010, our founder Sean Breen had been experienced in demolition, concrete and electrical plant hire since 1997, bringing his significant hands on knowledge to bear in the design of the initial High Tip Dumper trucks. Seeing a gap in the market for a product range that delivered full load performance across a full working day, Sean set about designing the type of machine that operators would like to use, and which he knew his clients needed.

Sean’s keen interest in all types of machinery, his design and engineering capabilities and his on the ground experience ensured that the many iterations that the design went through prior to launch yielded an end product that worked exactly as the clients and the operators required.

Sean’s demolition experience meant that a rugged machine was designed. His rental experience meant that a low maintenance, reliable, easily transported product must be delivered. And his concrete cutting experience resulted in the versatile, compact and manoeuvrable high tip machine range. The company philosophy remains that we continue to invest and innovate to stay ahead of the market and provide the next generation of specialist machinery.

All our award-winning products are eco-friendly, Smart Charging, Low Noise, Zero Emissions plant solutions. Our clients operate within tight, enclosed sites or in production environments in Pharma, Food and Feed where zero emission criteria apply. Delivering flowing substrates directly to where they are required, our products ensure that our clients decarbonise their handling system while enabling flexibility. Being zero emission battery powered vehicles also means there is no requirement for on-site fuel storage.

Our future

City authorities, the demolition and concrete markets and our clients are increasingly demanding zero emission electric plant utilisation where public access in urban environments is impacted by construction projects. This is a marketplace that is expanding rapidly as the many benefits of smart charge, low noise, zero emission plant are understood. A contractor can ride or walk behind an ED800/1000/1500 through a mall, down a tunnel or process hall as all the safety lighting, alarms and functionality is on board every unit we manufacture. They value speed of delivery within their project or process and ease of use for the operators. We even provide safe storage of manuals in bespoke secure locations on the units for 24/7 access by operators and all manuals, training and videos are available to clients online.

Kenneth Finn, Sales & Business Development Director, Ecovolve, says that much of the success of the company is down to the uniqueness of the product range it offers.

“When it comes to on-site safety, particularly where a client is working within an operational manufacturing or pharma plant, or on an enclosed building space, our range of eco plant is an ideal solution because it has zero emissions and makes minimal noise. There is also the added benefit of not having to store fuel on site. With operations in tunnelling, mining, demolition, concrete, pharma, food and feed delivery all using our smart charge, battery powered high tip dumpers, the opportunity to drive costs down, while delivering efficiency and consistency into their processes is proving to be a winning formula for our clients”.
