New van fleet
Halton Housing Trust has started the New Year by unveiling their eye-catching new van fleet, complete with a refreshed livery design. The overhaul of the Trust’s Construction Services Team means they are now more distinctive and easier to recognise on the streets of Runcorn and Widnes as well as projecting a professional and friendly service.
The Trust’s Maintenance Technicians have also been provided with distinctive new workwear. The selection of uniform was confirmed after consultations with the Maintenance technicians and our health and Safety representatives. Our main concern around the design was to ensure comfort and safety.
Nick Atkin, Chief Executive for Halton Housing Trust has said “when you see the new vans, coupled with our new workwear, the whole look and feel is taken to another level. It has also increased still further the sense of pride and ownership from our colleagues, especially as each van has been bespoke to their individual working requirements.”
The initial arrival of 12 small vans in early December followed by 40 boxer vans was completed with the delivery of specialist vans and tippers which arrived in January.
All vehicles are kitted out with trackers which were carried out off site therefore having no impact on service; once they arrived they were ready for a quick change over. The trackers have a wide range of benefits, including, monitoring fuel consumption, the ability to allocate our resources in a more efficient and effective way, and of course being able to monitor driving skills.
