Ed Thory said: “Local facilities and local people will make all the difference, not just to get new equipment fitted quickly and efficiently but also when we want a speedy service response as well. Harsh Peterborough can now give us the full package and could not be better located for tipper operators in East Anglia and the East Midlands. It’s exactly what we need.”
Matt Bryant, who manages the Harsh Peterborough facility, said: “The Harsh tractor kit has been designed to be powerful, reliable, simple to use and of minimal weight. It can also be configured to work with either one type of trailer, or many - including walking floors, ejectors and even liquid tankers. It’s all about giving the customer the most efficient and practical hydraulics solution to their particular requirement. For customers in this area, there’s now no need to send their trucks up to our HQ in York to have the equipment fitted there which obviously saves valuable time and money. And for the many truck dealers in Eastern England we can now offer a specialist hydraulics fitting service that’s essentially local to them. In short - a better solution for everyone.”
The Harsh wet kits fitted to the latest Scania tractors offer full functionality with all types of trailers.
As well as providing new equipment and backup for tipper operators, Harsh Peterborough also offers support for users of other Harsh products such as skiploaders, hookloaders and sheeting systems.
Harry Hustler, business development manager at Harsh in south and east England, said: “More and more we are seeing traditional and long - standing tipper operators expanding their activities into complementary activities such as waste, recycling and environmental services. PJ Thory is a perfect example of this full-service, multi-function business approach and we are delighted to be playing even a small part in their ongoing success.
Having a company-owned regional branch is something that in the truck hydraulics business is unique to Harsh. It’s a clear sign of our particular commitment to the industry and will be of real value to truck operators throughout Eastern England.”
