Wetherby Deliver Growth in South Wales

South Wales

Following rapid growth of its South Wales operation, Wetherby Building Systems has made significant investment in its fleet, with the introduction of a new 26 tonne wagon to service hard to reach areas of Wales and the West Country.

Due to continuing success of the company’s Bridgend depot, Wetherby Building Systems has introduced a new 26 tonne curtain side wagon into its fleet. Provided by its long-term haulage supplier, Trojan-Mek Limited, the new dual-branded vehicle is fitted with a two tonne moffett fork lift truck to allow mechanical offload and enable deliveries to be made to previously difficult to access sites.

The addition of the fork lift truck also provides operational and cost efficiencies to customers, with quicker loading and off-loading times, turnaround time is reduced on-site, while its ability to travel over rough terrain further saves time when trying to move product around a construction site.

Committed to reducing its carbon footprint wherever possible, Wetherby has also ensured the new wagon produces a low level of CO2 emissions to help meet its environmental responsibilities and also enable the wagon to travel into London to service projects in the city.

Commenting on the new addition to the South Wales fleet, Mark Arnold, Wetherby customer services manager, said: “Since opening last year, our South Wales depot is going from strength to strength and we are continuing to invest in the facility to ensure future growth.

“The investment in the new vehicle will open up new opportunities as we will not be restricted in the sites we can deliver to and can supply our EWI solutions to projects throughout South Wales, the West Country and into London.”

Operations director for Trojan-Mek, Leighton Price, added: “Not only will investment in the new vehicle fortify the working partnership between us and Wetherby Building Systems, but will also enhance Trojan-Mek’s capability within the Construction materials distribution market, and improves our capability to relocate smaller manufacturing machines and electrical control panels.”
