SDC Deliver IT for Construct IT with 40 trailers

Construct IT say the new trailers, made by SDC, feature “low friction, easy-roll curtain rail technology” with a clear side aperture for safe and efficient loading / unloading.

A detailed specification was determined by David McWilliams and Construct IT’s operations director Amarat Gill, in line with the firm’s requirements to transport industrial, manufacturing and construction materials.

Commenting on the order, David McWilliams, Sales Director at Construct IT, said:

“At Construct IT, we are continuing to invest in our modern haulage fleet and the latest technologies to assist our drivers and deliver quality to our customers. We were pleased to work along with SDC once again, to develop a specification that meets our operational requirements. The new Freespan Curtainsiders have enabled us to match the growth of our business and to reflect the diverse requirements of our customers in the construction sector. They complement our crane offload vehicles and increase our offering to our construction customers for delivering bagged aggregates, bricks, blocks and cement etc, where mechanical offload isn’t required.”

Other features on the new SDC built trailers include BPW Eco-Plus axles, Haldex generation 3 braking, flush steel doors, ISO regulation electrics, rear protection buffers and an easy-access coupling box.

The new assets compliment the firm’s existing fleet of platform and curtainsider trailers, and sport Construct IT’s neon and black branding, which was awarded ‘Livery of the Year’ at the 2021 Motor Transport Awards.

Also commenting on the announcement was, SDC’s UK Sales Manager, Matt Kerrison, who said:

“Having worked with David and Amarat in the past, it was a pleasure to work with them again and I’m very proud to supply Construct IT with our Freespan Curtainsiders. SDC trailers set the standard in terms of durability and our strong engineering capability is industry renowned, allowing us to define the most appropriate transport solution for our customer’s niche application. Construct IT’s striking neon livery will be easily viewed up and down the UK road network.”
