Wincanton invest £4.2m in construction fleet

Wincanton has invested £4.2m adding 27 new vehicles to its dedicated construction fleet.

This investment follows the addition of 20 new curtain-sided teardrop trailers that were introduced earlier this year in partnership with Lafarge.

The vehicles will be used to carry loads of building materials from bricks, to tiles and aggregates for a range of customers in the construction sector.

Wincanton managing director Chris Kingshott said: “This investment reflects our commitment to the construction sector and follows a recent 27 per cent growth in volumes from our customers.
