Fleet and team expand
Hurst Doors has added four new vehicles to its national delivery fleet, which will help meet the growing national demand.
This new additional investment follows a recent £1 million investment programme, which has included a new CNC machine area, significant machinery upgrades, and a recruitment drive that has grown the Hurst team by 20%.
Jon Brake, transport manager at Hurst Doors, said: “These new vehicles are eco-friendly, and some of the best vehicles we could have on the road. One of our key goals is building on the already fantastic otif measurements we’re operating within, which have been consistently recorded at 99% over the last 12 months. The extra yield load that comes with these vehicles will allow us to be responsible and more flexible with larger orders than ever before, which is fantastic news for our customers. Not only this but they have also created three new full-time delivery roles.”
Dave Fellowes, director of DNK Services and Hurst customer, said: “Hurst are great to work with, as they use their own vehicles the products get to customers in the best condition. The speed of their delivery is great as they cover most of the UK twice a week. By working with a manufacturer who can deal with tight deadlines and fast deliveries allows us to provide our customers with an efficient service. I feel they always go above and beyond to provide the best service possible.”
All of Hurst’s vehicles meet Euro 6 emissions standards and are equipped with the latest telematic software to ensure the fleet is operating efficiently and cost effectively. With each vehicle covering approximately 100K miles a year, the fleet delivers in excess of 12,000 PVCU door panels and 2,000 composite doors a month.
