Blackheath Products’ trucks get new look from Graphics Depot

Blackheath Products' trucks

Blackheath Products, a supplier to the construction and furniture industries, entered 2020 with a new-look fleet following the completion of Graphics Depot’s rebranding work.

Graphics Depot removed the existing liveries and applied its customer’s latest design on 16 trucks.

Blackheath Products, a division of Bevan Group, is a £28 million turnover business and operates from a base with 100,000 sq ft of warehousing in Halesowen, West Midlands.

Blackheath Products transport manager Mick Greensill said: “Bevan have always done a good job for us, building bodies which are fit for purpose and stand the test of time.

“So, having decided to update the fleet with our new branding, it was only natural that our first call was to Graphics Depot.

“Colette and her team took the project on and worked hard to ensure there was as little disruption as possible to our business.

“We’re very pleased with the results, as the vehicles look great, and we’ve had a lot of positive feedback from customers.”

The company supplies decorative laminate, melamime-faced boards, solid surfacing and acrylic panels to the construction industry, as well as worktops, sinks and flooring to kitchen and bathroom retailers.

Blackheath Products runs a fleet of 19 DAF rigid trucks, which are contract hired from Ryder.

Most of the operator’s trucks are 7.5-tonners, although Graphics Depot also rebranded six 18-tonners, three of which have sleeper cabs.

The rebranding project entailed removal of the old liveries from the cabs and rear doors, prior to ‘mopping and polishing’ to obscure all trace of the previous design.

Bevan Group has headquarters and two factories in Wednesbury, as well as production facilities in Halesowen and Oldbury, and one in St Helens, Merseyside.
