Kingston Works Ltd adds six more Isuzu trucks to its fleet

Building, repair and maintenance contractor Kingston Works Ltd (KWL) has added six Isuzu N75.190 (E) 7.5t crew cab tippers trucks to its fleet.

KWL’s are working on behalf of the Highways Department at Hull City Council. It is anticipated that these vehicles will be in the KWL fleet for a minimum of seven years.

The trucks each feature the Easyshift automated transmission and all have front-mounted Penny Hydraulic lifts and Gardner Denver drive systems that provide compressed air to operate the plant and equipment used for ongoing road repairs.

KWL’s relationship with Isuzu goes back more than 20 years. Last year, the company added four Isuzu 7.5 tonne tippers and has further seven Isuzu 7.5t tippers that are scheduled for delivery in early 2020 – this order includes six Isuzu 7.5t day cab chassis with caged tippers and fold-over tail lifts, as well as one additional Isuzu 7.5t crew cab tipper with rear crane.

Hull-based KWL operates a fleet of more than 150 commercial vehicles, as well as maintaining and running over 400 pieces of plant and equipment.

“Isuzus have become part and parcel of our fleet and, over and above the reliability and payload benefits, our vehicle operatives and crews definitely like them, consistently giving us positive feedback about the vehicles’ performance,” said Garry Middleton, fleet and engineering manager at KWL. “At the same time, we get excellent support from Thompson Commercials here in Hull, who are our local Isuzu Truck dealer, and this is an integral part of the success of the long-term relationship with Isuzu,”

Dave Slatcher, municipal fleet sales manager, Isuzu Truck UK, added: “The long-term relationship between Kingstown Works Ltd and Isuzu Truck UK is a classic example of how two companies can work very closely together to ensure the specification for new vehicles entering a fleet satisfactorily meets the requirements of the end user, in this case Hull City Council. In conjunction with Thompson Commercials in Hull, Isuzu Truck has an excellent working relationship with KWL, which will continue well into the next decade.”
