Enviro – Clean sees Thompsons ‘ coming to Scotland ‘the perfect move’

Latest News | 8th May

One of the first truck operators to welcome Thompsons’ announcement that it is to open a tipper factory in Scotland is Enviro – Clean (Scotland) Ltd, a long term user of Thompsons bodies that has just taken another two new examples into its 100 – plus truck fleet.

The two new trucks are Volvo FMXs fitted with easy – discharge curved floor Multimaster bodies, making these trucks ideal for multi-purpose tipping which, in this case, often involves shifting wet and sticky soils on ground clearance work.

Having purchased Thompsons bodies for a good few years already, Enviro – Clean confirms that Thompsons bodies continue to out – perform their competition whether in terms of reliability, durability and whole life cost of operation. Building on this success, Enviro – Clean now sees Thompsons’ latest move to open a factory north of the border as an absolutely perfect move that can only enhance what is already a solid business relationship.

Enviro – Clean Transport Manager Findlay Robertson comments:

“Thompsons coming to Scotland is a perfect move which can only benefit everyone. We’ve run Thompsons bodies for a long time with great success and, being a Scottish tipper operator, it’s obviously even more advantageous for us if our bodies can be built locally.

Similarly, we’re obviously delighted to see Thompsons directly investing in Scotland and the Scottish economy. This is a genuine ‘win – win’ development that can only benefit us all.”

Speaking for Thompsons, director Scott Burton comments:

“We really appreciate the faith that Enviro – Clean and other Scots operators have placed in our products, despite the fact that we have had to build them and deliver them from England. Opening a factory in Scotland will be a very significant investment for our company, but one that we think will pay us real dividends in the future. We already have a strong and steadily increasing customer base north of the border, which soon we will be able to really accelerate.

Key to Thompsons’ long term success will not be just about building bodies in Scotland, but also reducing delivery times and providing optimum standards of locally – based parts and service support.”

Based in East Kilbride, Enviro – Clean (Scotland) Ltd is primarily engaged in keeping UK water networks running efficiently and reliably whilst also providing a wide range of closely related domestic and industrial services, including tipper hire, earthmoving, plant hire and the disposal of all types of waste.
