The arrival of a brand-new Mercedes-Benz Arcox 32 tonne lorry with trailer is one the company’s largest transport investments to date. The lorry is fitted with the latest technology, including remote control crane system which will make our loading and unloading operations safer, faster and more efficient and with the new engine technology, that produces lower emission levels. and better fuel economy, which will also reduce our company’s carbon footprint.  The vehicle has also been fitted with a state-of-the-art front facing cameras to assist the insurance company with any incidents or accidents which may occur out on the road.

Spinks Building Supplies, who have merchants based in Doncaster and Leeds deliver a range of heavy side materials, including bricks, blocks, civils, roofing and timber. The lorry can carry 44 tonnes of materials so it will be a welcome addition to the fleet.

The drivers are looking forward to getting behind the wheels and out on the road.”
