Woodhead’s brand new fleet is ready to go as business grows

Construction company Woodhead is set to hit the roads in its brand new fleet of vans.

The family business will this year reach its highest ever turnover figure and continues to see staff numbers grow, having taken on its 100th employee just a few weeks ago.

To support the demands of a business working across the Midlands and Yorkshire, Woodhead has purchased a brand new fleet of Ford Transit Courier vans. The 13 vehicles will this week leave the company’s head office in Edwinstowe, to be used across the company’s many active sites.

Hilary Cheshire, Company Secretary said: “The new vans look great and we have been delighted to invest during what has been a difficult time for the industry.

“As we continue to grow we need to minimise our impact on the environment, these brand new vans are more fuel efficient and the new livery features cycle safety warnings.”

“When looking for a fleet, we wanted to make sure the vans were going to work for us as a business, and we’re really pleased to have settled on the Ford Transit Courier model.

“We’re now working across the Midlands and Yorkshire, from Doncaster to Nottingham, Mansfield, Lincoln, Northampton and even Skegness. I’m looking forward to seeing this new fleet heading out and helping our site teams deliver their projects successfully.”

Daniel Clark, Commercial Sales Executive at GK Ford Commercial Sales in Mansfield, said: “We are delighted to have been able to supply 13 All New Ford Transit Courier Trend Vans to Robert Woodhead Ltd

“The Courier is a versatile, reliable and easy to drive vehicle with the loadspace and features of a much larger van. It’s good to see a forward-looking company taking advantage of Ford’s innovative designs.”
