Suttons invests £17m in UK tankers

Suttons Group is investing more than £17 million in new tractor units for its UK road tanker business.

The purchase of over 200 new Euro-6C 6×2 tractor units in the next two years will provide capacity for recent growth and contribute to the company’s strategy to invest in equipment that offers its customers the most effective and flexible solutions.

During the procurement process vehicle specification, fuel efficiency, reliability, after sales support and whole life cost were considered. Suttons’ national tanker network has led to more demand for bulk tanker services. Group CEO John Sutton said: “Suttons Tankers is the UK’s largest bulk chemical logistics company and this latest deal continues our commitment to investing in the latest equipment and technology for both existing and new customers.

“Our drivers’ safety and well-being is of great importance so all of the trucks have undergone an evaluation by a driver trainer, focusing on areas like seat comfort, cab and bed access, noise and cab design.

“Suttons is committed to ensuring our reputation for fleet reliability, legal compliance and customer service are protected and enhanced and our impact on the environment is reduced through new emission technology.”
