We have invested in a further eight hundred Power Tracks 20 temporary roadway plates, manufactured by our Dutch partners, GWWPRO. Power Tracks 20 are ideally suited to provide sturdy temporary roadways and ground protection on both hard and soft surfaces. The plates are made from recycled and recyclable HMPE plastic and are used widely throughout the construction and outside events markets.

To ensure that both our Power Tracks 20 and our larger Power Tracks 40 systems are installed safely on sites,

FORS Certificate

During the past months, we have experienced a large increase in demand for our equipment from the construction industry. This prompted us to apply for the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS). Under the guidance of our transport manager, Colin Dorrington, we are delighted to announce that following an intensive audit by a FORS representative, we have achieved bronze accreditation. We already have plans in place to work towards silver and, eventually, gold levels.

Commenting on these investments, Graham Crisp said, “Although these remain demanding times, we took an early decision to continue our investment programmes by expanding the rental fleet and strengthening our onsite operations. Gaining FORS accreditation was a challenge that was overcome by our transport team and we were delighted to gain this award for the first time of asking.”
