Tekfloor Welcomes First Of A Brand New Fleet Of Vehicles


NEW FLEET SIGNALS NEXT PHASE OF GROWTH FOR HIGH-FLYING MATERIAL DISTRIBUTOR TEKFLOOR



Tekfloor Welcomes First Of A Brand New Fleet Of Vehicles

Following recent news of a successful multi-million-pound fund raise, screed & render distributor, TEKFLOOR has today taken receipt of a brand-new 32 tonne truck; the very first in a substantial upgrade to its fleet.

With a faultless commitment towards commercial success, TEKFLOOR’s partnership with new vehicle partner, MARCOL, will ensure that their self-managed transport arm remains fully operational; and equipped with the latest, most efficient fleet of commercial vehicles.

In the first phase of the fleet overhaul, the company will take delivery of no less than 23 brand-new, fully liveried vehicles.

In addition, TEKFLOOR will also be investing a further £500,000 in eighteen brand new moffett forklift trucks, which will afford their offload drivers exceptional flexibility on-site.

 

TEKFLOOR’s Joint Managing Director, Adam Wiszniewski, told us “The partnership with Marcol represents a significant opportunity for us and we are delighted to be working with them. The confidence they have shown in our management team and future direction has been genuinely encouraging and we look forward to a long-lasting partnership.”

Adam went on to say that since an increasing number of customers were insisting on the use of rigid vehicles, it was the perfect opportunity to move away from tractor and trailer units and focus on customer demand. 

“When it came to selection, the shape of the new fleet has been very much customer led. One of our greatest strengths as a company is that we listen. We strive to give our customers exactly what they need to make their own jobs/lives easier.

“By changing from 26 tonne to 32 tonne units, the new rigid vehicles will of course accommodate more weight; meaning customers are set to receive far fewer deliveries. The other plus is that there will be fewer haulage miles travelled; which of course is a big tick in the box towards our environmental aims for the company.”

 

All new vehicles are set to meet all of the latest requirements for compliance with FORS GOLD, TFL, CLOCS and Network Rail, with a number of safety features being included as standard.

“All new vehicles will of course be fitted with camera equipment and parking sensors. However with London’s ‘Direct Vision Standard’ HGV safety scheme currently under consultation, we felt it necessary to go a step further with our rigid units and look towards a more future-proof solution.” 

The lower door panel on the passenger door comes equipped with a viewing window, which allows the driver a much clearer view of cyclists and pedestrians approaching the nearside of the vehicle.

 

TEKFLOOR anticipates that the new fleet will offer increased flexibility and improved service to customers, at the same time as delivering proved efficiencies through planning backload collections.

As the UK’s leading independent distributor of screed, render and associated products to the construction sector, TEKFLOOR’s ambitious plans for the future are set to see the company’s turnover more than double.
