Pendragon Vehicle Management provides maintenance fleet for Hanson UK

Pendragon Vehicle Management (PVM) has worked in collaboration with Clarks Vehicle Conversions to deliver new tool vans to Hanson UK.

Pendragon Vehicle Management (PVM) has worked in collaboration with Clarks Vehicle Conversions to deliver new tool vans to Hanson UK.

The supplier of heavy building materials to the UK construction industry wanted to update its maintenance crew vehicles and create safe and practical tool vans for its crew. 

After PVM supplied Hanson with Vauxhall vans, Clarks Vehicle Conversions transformed the vehicles’ interiors to suit the needs of Hanson’s crew.

Lockable cages and metal racking were installed in the vans to improve journey safety and heavy locks were installed on the rear and side doors to reduce the risk of theft.

Clarks also installed a mechanical side step, hand rails, internal lighting and non-slip flooring.

An additional drying area for wet clothing, with hand washing facilities, was also added to the build, along with first aid and eyewash kits.

Darren Watret, asset manager of Hanson UK, said: “I took new tool vans through Pendragon in 2015 and my considerations at the time were mainly vehicle choice.

"As vehicles were coming to their renewal point, I wanted to provide not just a vehicle with good manufacture safety standard but also a vehicle that compliments the way the gangs work."
