Following a period of increased demand and success, the UK’s leading shredding specialists – Shred Station – have invested in expanding their 70+ strong-fleet of vehicles and chose world leading provider of on-road load handling equipment, Hiab, as the manufacturer of choice.
Headquartered in Norwich, the award-winning company selected Hiab’s MULTILIFT Ultima 24S hooklift fitted to a DAF chassis, marking the businesses fourth purchase from Hiab in just eight years.
As the UK’s largest independent provider of secure confidential waste destruction and disposal services, the specialist kit will be used to support Shred Station’s nationwide operation, specifically for collecting and delivering skips to its well-established customer base.
Managing director of Shred Station, Simon Franklin, commented: “We’re delighted with our recent purchase from Hiab. Their equipment is second to none and jam-packed with features that ensure performance, reliability and efficiency – three things that are of the utmost important to us and our customers and the reason we continue to go back to Hiab.”
The MULTILIFT Ultima 24S hooklift is a sliding hooklift with 24 tonne capacity for 4 axle trucks. Hiab’s Sequence Performance™ technology enables automatic sequence control via a single lever movement for loading, unloading and tipping.
Simon added: “Thanks to a period of sustained growth we needed to expand our fleet and with reliability our number one requirement Hiab’s MULTILIFT was our natural first choice. We already have four MULTILIFT Ultima’s in our fleet and this highly-anticipated new truck will ease the pressure off existing routes and vehicles and help us to continue to offer our customers the service they have come to expect from us.”
Dek Butler, MULTILIFT specialist for Hiab UK added: “It’s fantastic to see Simon and his team choose Hiab again and a testament to the quality and versatility of our MULTILIFT range which is used by clients working in multiple sectors including construction, waste disposal and recycling to name just a few.
“From HiVision™ camera-guided technology and advanced connectivity, to a unique integrated weighing system and intuitive touchscreen controls, Ultima represents a new era for load handling and for businesses like Shred Station. We’d like to thank them for their repeat custom and look forward to continuing to work with them for many years to come.”
