We have strengthened our successful relationship with leading Traffic Management business Chevron by delivering seven new Impact Protection Vehicles (Crash Cushions) to our long-standing customer.
Chevron has a team of 500 Traffic Management Operatives carrying out vital but dangerous work on the nation’s roads and with the help of Blakedale’s Impact Protection Vehicles they have an unrivalled record for workforce safety.
Chevron first teamed up with Blakedale seven years ago hiring a few trucks and welfare units where necessary. Today they have a number of vehicles on hire from us, ranging from bespoke 3.5 tonne Traffic Management Vehicles to brand new state-of-the-art Impact Protection Vehicles.
Chevron’s Director, Mark Fleckner says: “For us safety is paramount, we operate nationwide on a variety of projects and having the flexibility to hire specialist Impact Protection Vehicles from Blakedale that align with our specification is an ideal way to meet our needs.”
Sales Director at Blakedale, Dave Staiano says: “Recently we have developed a more collaborative relationship with Chevron so we have a comprehensive understanding of what they need from the vehicles. They have vast, first hand experience of operating Traffic Management Vehicles in the high pressure and often, hazardous road network environment.
“Chevron are very generous in sharing this knowledge and we are happy to learn from their experience to make our vehicles as user friendly and safe as possible.”
Mark adds: “We have built up a really successful working relationship and we know we can always rely on the team at Blakedale for support, they are a very customer focussed business.
“Blakedale’s vehicles are absolutely first class, and the new fleet has been personalised to meet our exact requirements from the sign racks, cone wells and under body storage through to the latest technology in the cab including CCTV, reverse alarms and work lights.”
