WELCOME TO THE TEAM


The management team would like to wish all the team and their families a Happy New Year.
We had a very busy 2003, some of the highlights:-
In February we decided to operate from 1 control room so that we could use our resources more effectively.
In March we went through our regular review for our ISO but this time we had to be accredited to the latest ISO and the new quality standard for the recovery industry PAS 43. We came through that with flying colours.
At AVROEX in June we won “Best Light Recovery Vehicle” for the new AW 31 which is a Ford Iveco with a one control demount body which allows a very low loading angle. Jeff was presented “The Phil Briercliffe Gold Award” as the Most Outstanding Personality Of The Year.
At TRUCKFEST in July for the 6th year in a row we won “Best Turned Out Crew”. Jeff was presented with the “Roger Dyson Rose Bowl” for Jeff’s contribution to the recovery industry. We also won “Best In Show Post 1990” for AW 1 the Scania Rotator.
Finally we would like to thank everyone in the team for your hard work in 2003 and we look forward to a successful 2004.

VEHICLES

Would all drivers please ensure that when they return any vehicle back to any base, it is left as you found it. Do not leave the bed with oil or debris all over it and straps not secured properly. Also ensure that you do not leave the fuel tank nearly empty, always leave a vehicle as you would wish to find it.
