Trailer manufacturer Martin Trailer Company has constructed a trailer designed to meet the specific requirements of mechanical maintenance company
Concor Plant, and to transport a variety of equipment to sites throughout the country at a substantially lower cost than conventional
Concor Plant transport manager Bertus Jordaan notes that, although the Martin trailer is not the cheapest, it is competitively priced, and the long-term cost benefits will more than offset the initial cost. He adds that, despite the trailer being lighter, it is, nevertheless, of robust design and manufacture.
“With the combining of Murray & Roberts’ and Concor’s plant fleets, we needed a reliable 75-t capacity lowbed trailer, and the Martin trailer will ensure we get equipment to site quickly and safely,” says Jordaan.
