Sales of Melcourt SylvaGrow® are already at record levels but our guess is that they’ll increase even further now that this trailer has hit the road. It will be based near our Tetbury production facility, bringing raw material from nearby sawmills which will be graded and composted to form the basis of our different #peatfree products.
The tractor unit and trailer are owned by A.W. Jenkinson Transport Limited, one of the UK’s largest providers of haulage, distribution and logistics services. The Company was incorporated in 2014, having previously been part of A.W. Jenkinson Forest Products, formed in the 1960s. The Transport fleet now enables the A.W. Jenkinson group of businesses to handle nearly four million tonnes of roundwood, woodchips, shavings, bark and other timber co-products every year.
For Melcourt, using modern, efficient, locally based vehicles like these and materials from as close to us as possible helps us keep the carbon-footprint of our operation as low as we can.
