Dennison Trailers has fromed a new partnership with experts in abnormal load movements, Collett & Sons Ltd.
The deal has seen a number of bespoke PSK trailers manufactured and delivered to Colllet & Sons, providing expert additions to their dedicated fleet of trucks and self-propelled modular transporters (SPMTs) which operate between their strategically placed depots in Halifax, Goole, Grangemouth and Ireland.
Commenting on the deal, David Collett, Managing Director of Collett & Sons, said: “We had some additional requirements to the standard PSK and Dennison were able to meet these requirements very well. The trailers will be used on general haulage activities but mostly being used for the delivery of structural steelwork to construction sites around the UK.”
The Collett team undertake all single unit goods handling requirements, project cargo and one-off deliveries, as well as permits and Police escorts, and heavy lift positioning. They are experts in the relocation of machinery, jacking and skidding, through to specialist logistics operations for complete breakbulk contracts.
Working with Dennison Trailers who are a well-established, family owned business with a passion for innovation, forward thinking and problem solving, aids Collett & Sons Ltd to provide the best, high quality and safe service to their customers. Engineering excellence is paramount at Dennison’s and they are happy to be able to meet the specific requirements set by David Collet: “The deal was successfully won by Dennison after some lengthy technical and commercial discussions. Due to Health and Safety requirements, many construction sites are now demanding a high level of quality for the delivery process, which include Fall Arrest Protection and XL Headboards to name but a few.
It has meant a substantial investment on our part to be able to provide our services and work in this environment, but the Dennison trailers have helped us to tick all the boxes required.”
Managing Director of Dennison Trailers, James Dennison added: “Collett & Sons are an industry leader in what they do and have a similar success route to us here at Dennison’s. We both shared very similar values and work extremely hard to be the companies you see today. It is fantastic to work with a team who also value their history, and who have seen huge growth due to hard work, passion and commitment – just like us.”
