Drighlington, West Yorkshire-based David Blockley and Son has taken delivery of a new Volvo FH16-750 Ailsa Edition 6x2 tractor unit.

The truck, supplied by Crossroads Truck and Bus, comes with a three-year Volvo Gold R&M contract and will be hired out full-time to long-standing customer, Fred Greenwood and Son.

David Blockley, who offers tractor units for hire and also carries out vehicle maintenance and recovery, said: “The new Ailsa Edition tractor unit will be used on livestock transport throughout the UK and this Volvo is the seventh 16-litre, FH16-750 I’ve bought.

“I have a long established and extremely strong relationship with Crossroads Truck and Bus, as I started work there in 1973 as an apprentice mechanic.

“I commenced my own business as an independent repairer in 1980 and my association with Crossroads and Volvo has continued since.”
