RTN expands in Barnsley

Tanker manufacturer RTN has opened a second factory in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

Don Mckelvie, operations director, said: “Foreign competition has dramatically reduced due to our expanding production which is very positive news for UK manufacturing.

“We’re now supplying most of the fuel distribution companies and we supply all four major supermarkets.

“The growth of RTN has been exceptional in the past two years and we owe a debt of gratitude to Enterprising Barnsley and BBIC who have been pillars of support, particularly with regards to lean manufacturing and expansion.”

Offering a range of tankers to the bulk liquid haulage industry, RTN serves customers such as Shell, DHL, Tesco and Morrisons.
