MAN TGS 26.320 platform with crane - Used Truck of the Day
Our Used Truck of the Day has been found at Dartford-based Joyner Commercial Vehicles who have an MAN TGS platform truck that we rather like the look of.
The 25ft platform is fitted with a Cormach 19500 E3 remote controlled crane which is mounted to the Euro-6 TGS 26.320 chassis. It has a lifting rear axle, air suspension and an automatic gearbox. Also specified is a four-way camera system.
The deck also has twist locks and has come from one owner who has kept it in a very sharp looking condition during the 200,000km it has covered.
New appointments at tipper bodybuilder Thompsons
Tipper bodybuilder Thompsons has made four new appointments, including a second sales manager for England.
Scott Dunn, who formerly worked for TH White, will have responsibility for the eastern side of the country. His sales area will run from Newcastle upon Tyne down to Yorkshire, the East Midlands and East Anglia. Meanwhile Ian Chaplin will be looking after the western area of England, running south from Carlisle to Birmingham to the South West (including Wales).
Further appointments have been made at Thompsons’ Blackburn sites.
David Owen was recently appointed group purchasing manager, whilst Arthur Wright now takes on the role of production manager for bodybuilding at Blackburn Factory 2. Long-serving Blackburn employee Yogi Patel has now been promoted to the role of group health and safety manager.
Thompsons’ joint MD Simon Shields says: “These are all important appointments which will help the company become even stronger. We welcome Scott to our team, with his proven knowledge and expertise being especially valuable to our customers. It’s also good that we can make important promotions from our own staff as the company continues to grow. 2020 already looks like being another key year for the Thompsons Group.”
