By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 19 Apr 2018
CLUGSTON Distribution Services has invested almost half a million pounds to expand its fleet of flatbed trailers.
The Scunthorpe company has purchased an additional 20 new flatbed trailers, 15 of which are extendable as well as five standard flatbed trailers.
Clugston’s new trailers are individually designed for the transportation of various products up to 22 metres in length, and are also built to full British Steel specification requirements.
The investment comes at an exciting time for the company, having also only recently completed a six-figure upgrade to the truck and trailer maintenance facility on Brigg Road.
Equipped with leading-edge equipment, it offers a full turnkey solution for maintaining a wide variety of major truck manufacturers’ commercial vehicles and trailers as well as a commercial vehicle MoT test station.
Tim Doggett, pictured,distribution director, said: “We are experiencing an increased demand for our services across all our industry sectors, from bulk food, powder and fuel distribution through to specialist silo evacuations.
“With an incredible 80 years’ experience in the flatbed sector, the investment in these new trailers demonstrates our commitment to increasing our presence in the market, alongside
continuing to provide high levels of service.
“In total, over the course of the last three years, we have invested nearly two million in improving services for our customers.”
Building on the tanker fleet, Clugston has just bolstered its presence at the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers’ Expo in Liverpool, held this week.
The £140 million turnover business is taking the opportunity showcase the entire group’s capabilities, including property construction and facilities management.
