HMT buys four Dennison curtainsiders

H.M.T. Shipping of Warrenpoint, Co Down has added four curtainsiders from Dennison Trailers to its fleet of 450 trailers.

The 13.7m curtainsiders with 156mm deep neck were delivered to HMT’s Heysham depot from Dennison’s factory in Lancaster. HMT operate a door-to-door trailer service between Ireland and the UK, carrying a wide range of cargo including foodstuffs, medical supplies, paper, steel, timber products, manufactured and agricultural cargos and raw materials.

Jarlath McGee of HMT Shipping said: “Dennison’s are high quality trailers and we have had nothing but good experiences in our dealings with Dennison. Their after sales service is very responsive to our needs and, being so close to our Heysham base, we know we can get parts quickly when we need them.”

Dennison Trailers UK managing director, James Dennison, said: “We invest heavily in continuous product development aimed at making our trailers the best on the road. Our sales of curtainsiders have been showing a marked increase, bucking the trend of many trailer manufacturers. We put that down to the build quality, competitive pricing and our commitment to giving our customers close attention from enquiry to delivery and beyond.”
