New livery set to galvanize busy truck fleet

Date published: 28 December 2019

A Heywood-based business is rolling out a new look for its busy fleet of trucks.

Manchester Galvanizing, which runs a busy collection and delivery service from its site, is switching to new livery in a bid to make them instantly recognisable.

The plant is part of a network of UK businesses owned by Wedge Group Galvanizing and the move is central to a major overhaul of the company’s nationwide logistics operation.

Fleet Transport Manager Paul Thompson said: “Our vehicles are our shop window in many ways, so it’s vital that they stand out and are consistent with our brand guidelines.

“The new modern livery will make each of our trucks instantly recognisable and that improves our visibility.”

Vehicles based at the Green Lane site are also being switched from Mercedes to DAF chassis as part of the rolling renewal programme.

Paul added: “We buy all our own vehicles outright and each plant has its own drivers based on site.

“We’ve also invested in new systems and technology, including increasing the number of load lashing points, and developed two new dedicated Driver CPC courses specifically for Wedge Group.

“Collection and delivery has been an integral part of the business for many years and we’re making sure it’s a service that’s fit for the future.”
