Yorkshire chemical manufacturer Airedale invests half a million in fleet

West Yorkshire-based chemical manufacturer, Airedale Chemical, has invested £500,000 in three new vehicles for its distribution fleet.

Over the last three years, Airedale Chemical has achieved growth of 15%, with a wider geographic customer base and increased demand for a broader portfolio of products.

Airedale Chemical’s transport manager, Graham Bird, commented: “As the company has grown year-on-year, so has our product range and, conversely, the volume and reach of our deliveries.

“Meeting this demand has meant our fleet has doubled in the last 3 years and with these latest vehicle additions, it is set to continue growing.”

Bolstering Airedale Chemical’s position as a leader in both chemical manufacture and distribution, is its investment in vehicles that are designed specifically to provide controlled transportation for a range of chemicals.

“Until now, we had used external haulage to transport some chemical types however, the lack of control over availability and costs prompted us to invest in our own rubber-lined tanker which gives us complete flexibility over deliveries meaning we can meet customers’ requirements instantly,” said Graham.

Transporting Airedale Chemicals’ products is a team of 23 which includes two new drivers who have been appointed off the back of the new vehicle acquisitions. All Airedale Chemical drivers are highly trained to meet International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) regulations.
