SHB Hire Ltd and Truckman Continue Relationship

SHBSHB is delighted to announce the renewal of the continued partnership with Dudley-based hardtop and accessory manufacturer Truckman. The relationship between the two British companies has developed over several years with Truckman providing quality hardtops and accessories for a range of vehicles.

In 2016 alone, the company provided SHB’s ever growing fleet with 270 new hardtops, allowing customers a more varied and high-quality level of business, capable of easily handling tough environments.

Most recently, the West Midlands’ based company delivered a collection of stylish and secure hardtops and bedliners to a fleet of more than 100 Toyota Hilux, Ford Ranger, Isuzu D-Max and VW Amarok vehicles. The hardtops ensure SHB customers of optimum safety as they are the only models in the UK to be compatible with the Hilux Active ladder gantry/rear window guard, whilst also improving the overall functionality.

Truckman’s Chairman Mike Wheeler said: “We are very proud of our longstanding relationship with SHB, which continues to flourish. In the last 12 months alone we have delivered a huge number of hardtops and accessories for its fleet of pick-up trucks, which add to the security and storage capabilities of the vehicles.

“It is also testament to the investments we have made at Truckman in our manufacturing and stockholding capabilities to ensure we can meet the volume and production quality requirements of a significant customer such as SHB.”

The ability to provide a service of such volume is a necessity as SHB hold ownership of having the largest 4x4 fleet in Europe.

Procurement manager Rick Williams was also quick to praise the extended affiliation, “It is great news to have Truckman on board for the future. We have had nothing but a positive working relationship with them that has benefited both companies as well as our customers.”

Truckman’s Chairman, Mike Wheeler added, “It’s been a pleasure to work in partnership with SHB. Our commercial hardtops are popular with large fleets such as SHB and we believe that is down to the robust and stylish British build and design, and being able to offer a bespoke solution to each customer.”
