Encirc get nine new Kel-Berg tipping trailers


Kel-Berg has delivered nine new T100 alloy tipping trailers to Northern Ireland operator Encirc. Kel-Berg won the order as it needed a quick delivery of units. All of the trailers were able to be built, painted and delivered within four weeks of the order.

Encirc transport manager Martin McGoldrick said: “Encirc decided to go with the Kel-Berg T100 tippers as its half-pipe tippers have been operating with hauliers for many years and are a tried and tested product.

“After looking at many manufacturers we went with the T100 Alloy Tipper as it was lightweight and helped increase our payload by an average of 1 tonne per trailer, which, in turn, will reduce our carbon impact by almost 18,000 tonnes per year."

“Kel-Berg delivered all trailers in a short lead time to meet our delivery schedule.”
