2018 So Far
4th June 2018
2018 has been a busy year so far.
We don’t only offer plant hire and haulage- we also have a Winter Maintenance division that have been working their woolly socks off for the 6-month winter gritting season.
After beating the ‘Beast from the East’ we’ve had a bit of warmer weather to catch up and now we’re back on track preparing for next winter! All our vehicles are currently making their way two by two (hoorah, hoorah) into our workshop to have all their preventative maintenance work carried out by our in-house technicians. They’ll then be cleaned and stored until next season- all but Rocking Robin that is.
Rocking Robin is currently our newest vehicle and will be making his way down to the big smokes of London to be displayed at the Facilities Show held at the ExCel Centre. Some of the Gritting team will be at stand Q750 to answer all your winter related questions as well as demonstrating our job management system used by our drivers each night.
Not only are the gritters getting a spruce; the 8-wheel tippers are also having their big annual tests! Our mechanics are working hard each day to ensure our vehicles are in the best possible condition to carry out their jobs. You may have seen our full haulage fleet out and about on jobs.
In the last few months we have also welcomed some new faces to our team across the various divisions. Iwona is our new friendly face in accounts, Tim is our new Manager for the sweeper and cleansing division and we also have Chris who was thrown into a pile of snow mid-season and joined our gritting team as the Assistant Depot Manager.
Here's to the next 6 months being as busy and exciting.
