Leading logistics company Howard Tenens has purchased two new mobile yardramps from Thorworld Industries, the latest order in a supply relationship that is now more than a decade old.
The latest yardramps have been specified for Howard Tenens’ facility in Boston, Lincolnshire, joining two previous ramps already in use at the site. In total, the company has 14 Thorworld yardramps in operation around the UK.
With a warehouse front of over 3,000,000 ft² and a distribution fleet of more than 150 vehicles, Howard Tenens has an ongoing requirement for high-quality loading/unloading equipment and has found Thorworld to be a consistently reliable supplier, both in terms of manufacture and aftercare.
“Thorworld have provided ramps for the Howard Tenens group for over 10 years,” explains Paul Spencer, Howard Tenens Boston General Manager. “Throughout this relationship the maintenance service provided by them has always been of a high standard.
“We recently purchased two new ramps from Thorworld as we know and are happy with the product. Furthermore, they have also assisted our other platform requirements across the Group,” he adds.
At the Boston site, yardramps are mostly used by Howard Tenens to unload incoming overseas deliveries of cartonboard.
The new yardramps are 10,000Kg capacity Type 6 Deluxe models, whose durability makes them ideal for regular, long-term usage anticipated by Howard Tenens.
They have been chosen to replace two older Thorworld models, which had been in continuous operation for around 14 years – so old that one of them predated the now-familiar red colour of the Thorworld range, confirming the robustness of their manufacture.
“As well as supplying Howard Tenens with yardramps, we also have a maintenance contract to ensure that the company gets reliable performance out of our ramps,” explains John Meale, Managing Director of Thorworld Industries. “This example shows just how long a Thorworld ramp can last if well looked after.
“We are delighted that Howard Tenens has kept faith in Thorworld for so long and we look forward to continuing our productive partnership,” he concludes.
