A worrying 7% of company car drivers actually admitted to driving at 90mph.

We are delighted to announce that we will be exhibiting at the Build Show on Stand B3/419. The show is part of UK Construction Week and is taking place at the Birmingham NEC on 18th – 20th October 2016.

In the past few months, there has been a lot of speculation rather than fact in terms of the economy and everything surrounding it. Fuel is a significant factor in all of the Post-Brexit chat.
It’s been a busy summer so far – and the Olympics haven’t even got going yet. The Olympics are the biggest peace time mobilisation of people and so, with such a huge buzz coming out of Rio, it’s time to warm up for the Games ahead…
