Harsh acquires I&M Tarpaulins20 March 2018


Truck and trailer sheeting system supplier Harsh has acquired York-based I&M Tarpaulins, a move which Harsh says will deliver new market opportunities.

I&M’s traditional business base includes agriculture, general industry and retail.

The acquisition, says Harsh, will enable the firm to be a high volume sheeting producer, stocking a range of products in standard sizes, such as for bodies of three- and four-axle tipper trucks.

It will also be able to offer repair services for all types of sheet and tarpaulin.

The sheeting and tarpaulin business will be run as a separate unit within the company, headed by manager Mark Britton. A new website will also be launched for the new business.

“Harsh now has the complete capability to market sheets and tarps across multiple industry sectors, not just commercial vehicles,” says Britton.

“That said, the level of our service to both truck operators and bodybuilders can only improve still further, especially in offering speedy and inexpensive repairs. I’ve no doubt at all that Harsh will quickly become recognised as the undisputed leader in this field.”
