Following the growth of its south Wales operation, Trojan-Mek Limited has teamed up with materials supplier Wetherby Building Systems and made significant investment in its fleet, with the introduction of a new 26 tonne wagon to service hard to reach areas of Wales and the West Country.

Headquartered on Village Farm Industrial Estate, Pyle, the machine-moving and transport firm Trojan-Mek collaborated with Wetherby to introduce a new 26 tonne curtain side wagon into its fleet. Catering to Wetherby’s successful depot at Bridgend, the new dual-branded vehicle is fitted with a two tonne moffett fork lift truck to allow mechanical offload and enable deliveries to be made to previously difficult to access sites.

The addition of the fork lift truck also provides operational and cost efficiencies to customers, with quicker loading and off-loading times, turnaround time is reduced on-site, while its ability to travel over rough terrain further saves time when trying to move product around a construction site.

Commenting on the new addition to the south Wales fleet, Leighton Price, Operations Director for Trojan-Mek, said: “Not only will investment in the new vehicle fortify the working partnership between us and Wetherby Building Systems, but will also enhance Trojan-Mek’s capability within the Construction materials distribution market, and improves our capability to relocate smaller manufacturing machines and electrical control panels for numerous customers.”

Customer Services Manager for Wetherby, Mark Arnold, added: “Since opening last year, our South Wales depot is going from strength to strength and we are continuing to invest in the facility to ensure future growth.

“The investment in the new vehicle will open up new opportunities as we will not be restricted in the sites we can deliver to and can supply our EWI solutions to projects throughout South Wales, the West Country and into London.”

Trojan-Mek was established in 2004 and employs 15 staff. The company has an annual turnover of £1million and operates across all major manufacturing sectors including automotive, aerospace, engineering, packaging, plastics, electronics, medical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, working with customers throughout the UK and overseas.
