A leading building, repair and maintenance company in Hull has made a significant investment in its vehicle fleet, with support from Yorkshire Bank.
Kingstown Works Ltd (KWL) has purchased 14 state-of-the-art refuse collection vehicles in a bid to achieve more efficient refuse collection in the region.
The new high specification vehicles have a variety of features, including four wheel steer, CCTV and vehicle tracking, which allows the driver to manoeuvre residential streets more easily.
The investment will also allow KWL to retire some of its aging fleet.
Darren Nicholson, chief finance officer at KWL, said: “The investment made is part of our continuing commitment to provide the city with the most efficient and suitable equipment to deliver the services required.
“It has been a pleasure to work with Yorkshire Bank, which has provided a personable and extremely competitive service, their flexibility and ability to act swiftly must be commended."
KWL was established in 2006 and is one of Hull and East Riding’s leading contractors, working in close partnership with Hull City Council.
It employs more than 400 people from its head office in the city.
