09 October 2019

A leading UK manufacturer, supplier and installer of temporary fencing, site hoardings, barriers and traffic management systems, has taken delivery of a new fleet of MAN commercial vehicles.

Liverpool-based Blok ‘N’ Mesh ordered 26 new 7.5 and 18-tonne vehicles, comprising six MAN TGL 8.190 4×2 Flatbeds and 20 MAN TGM 18.250 4×2 Flatbeds.

The 18-tonne TGM’s all feature chassis mounted Hiab X-HiDuo 158 Cranes.

All 26 vehicles are equipped with the latest MAN Fleet Management Telematics systems allowing Blok ‘N’ Mesh to monitor a range of functions, including detailed driver reports, vehicle track and trace and vehicle fitness checks.

Bodied by Brit-Tipp of Warrington, the entire fleet meets the FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) Compliance Silver Standard.

Chris Maclean, Transport Logistics Director at Blok ‘N’ Mesh, said, “This fleet is entering our business at an exciting time and as we grow our national and international footprint they will work delivering a range of Blok ‘N’ Mesh products on to our customer’s sites.

“Early feedback, in terms of efficiency, support and driver comfort, is extremely positive.”
