throughout the U.K. and Europe.Hugh moved towards heavy haulage in 1979 with the purchase of a new Scania 141 62-tonne tractor and a Broshuis three-axle 35-tonne payload semi low trailer.

An 80-tonne Foden followed in 1984, followed by a Nooteboom three-axle extendible power-steered low loader in 1986 for £65,000, which included £23,000 for power-steering proving money well spent as this revolutionised the transport of cranes and excavators into large city centres. Other hauliers are only now catching up with this technology. A Nooteboom five-axle extendible semi low loader followed in 1987 along with a 150-tonne 6x4 Scania to replace the Foden.

Expansion into Europe continued steadily over the coming years, the company building itself a healthy reputation based around its European knowledge and high levels of service. In 1993 the company opened its Scottish depot and was now transporting Terex dumptrucks from Motherwell to various European destinations.

The company continued to grow and saw the purchase of a 150-tonne 6x4 Scania (converted to 8x4 after two years) followed by a factory built 160-tonne 8x4 Scania and Nicolas 115-tonne payload trailer. Two more 150-tonne 8x4 Scanias followed in 1998. From here the company has invested heavily in various pieces of equipment including a Nooteboom 60-tonne six-axle double extendible semi low loader, a Broshuis eight-axle 80-tonne extendible semi low loader and two 60-tonne Broshuis five-axle extendible semi low loaders.

The most recent trailer to join the fleet is a state of the art 140-tonne payload nine-axle modular Scheuerle trailer. It has three interchangeable modules (two, three and four axled) and will accept beam inserts to give a 'bed' of between 7m and 22m in length.

This trailer has running height of 1000mm and can be lowered to 800mm to clear overhead obstructions.

The company today operates thirty vehicles and sixty trailers from its depots in Elmswell, Scotland and the Netherlands.
