Roger Dyson launches oldest recovery vehicle challenge 21 March 2011

Roger Dyson has launched a competition to find the oldest Dyson vehicle recovery truck still in operation.

Dyson, who has been in business for 40 years, is offering a prize to the winner: a one-off, hand-built model of the vehicle.

"We've been manufacturing recovery equipment since 1970," says Dyson. "And although the technology and the scale of our operation have changed out of all recognition, one thing has remained true throughout – Dyson bodies have always been built to last."

Dyson says he'd love to hear from operators who are still running old equipment, or anyone who has seen or knows of any possible candidates for the title of 'Oldest Dyson recovery unit still in operation'.

Although most Roger Dyson equipment built and fitted at the company's factory in Droitwich, Worcestershire, is delivered to customers in Britain, Ireland and Europe, exports are also made to farther-flung parts of the world.

Anyone who operates, or knows of, a vehicle fitted with old Dyson equipment that's still in operation, should email marketing manager Natasha Stolt at
