Nearly the middle of February?!? How did that happen?! Firstly may we take this opportunity to wish all of our customers and followers a rather belated Happy New Year!
We're glad to report that 2017 was a successful year for us, seeing us expand the Work Boat Hire fleet quite significantly with the addition of over 6 custom built vessels in 2017 alone, taking the fleet to over 30 vessels as we begin the new year. Whilst our Plant and Equipment fleet also rapidly increased, as we invested in Plant Trailers, Hydraulic Hand-held Post Drivers and a range of Excavators over the course of the year, as well as extensive staff training to boot!
Perhaps one of the most exciting recent acquisitions for us however has been that of acquiring the former stone-loading wharf at Bridge 36 on the Coventry Canal, which is already proving a helpful addition to our business operations.
The site is fully road accessible and is capable of accommodating vehicles up to large articulated vehicles, and so is ideally situated for assisting our Hirer's and Contractors in the loading and unloading of any plant or materials as required, as they service the Coventry and Ashby Canals.
Here's our Powered 36FT Workboat 'Cotswold' - on a rather crisp wintry morning last week - having a wood chipper unloaded ahead of her next hire commencing this week.
For further information on Mancetter Wharf, or any of the Plant and services we offer, please do get in touch!
