Axtec rolls back the price to celebrate its 30th anniversary

Axle weighing specialist Axtec is celebrating its 30th anniversary by offering one customer the chance to purchase its Static Single-Axle Weighbridge for the 1991 price of £4,999 instead of the usual £9,000.

This celebratory price roll-back will be offered to one customer on a first-come-first-served basis.

“The installation of Axtec’s Static-Single Weighbridge for under £5,000 presents a significant incentive for one fortunate operator,” said MD Keith Gresham, “It’s been a tough 12 months for the transport industry,” he added, “with many operators’ trucks and equipment lying idle. In these tough times, an under-loaded truck means productivity is compromised. Worse though is the potential danger posed by an overloaded vehicle and the safety implications for drivers and other road users.”

The Axtec Static Single-Axle Weighbridge is designed specifically for operators of 2-axle rigid vehicles.
