HeavyTorque is an essential read magazine for decision makers within the heavy haulage and specialist transport industry and provides a great opportunity for manufacturers to make their mark. The adverts are well produced, editorials exceptionally informative and the staff’s support has always been excellent. Promoting our products in HeavyTorque magazine is one of the best marketing decisions we have made.

Martin Pickering

Marketing Communications Manager

Kelsa choose to advertise in HeavyTorque because its content is clearly for serious players in the haulage industry, with a wide range of informative articles. We know that it reaches the right people and covers aspects of trucking most others do not, offering information on changes within the industry as well as new products and services. As a designer I’m also aware of the extremely high quality of the photographic content and print. We are really happy with the service we receive and have no hesitate in recommending HeavyTorque to truckers everywhere.

Frank Seddon

Kelsa Truck Products Ltd

I certainly enjoy reading HeavyTorque - and whilst we do not operate any heavy haulage ourselves - we do so on a sub-contract basis. Therefore, it’s good to see what equipment is being used by both suppliers, and the industry operators alike. The content and photographic quality is always first rate. Keep up the great work!

Duncan Rogers, Managing Director

Projector Lifting Service Ltd

HeavyTorque magazine is a class apart. Its orientation illustrates our sector on a different level. The general look is really unique and we value the highly informative content. The magazine is an ideal communication platform and partner for the Faymonville Group – who offer the complete transport solution for payloads from 15t to 15,000t… and beyond.

HeavyTorque has set a new standard in specialist print and on-line journalism. Not only is it attractive and appealing with great photography and layout, but the features provide in depth and incisive insight into this highly specialised sector of the road transport industry.

Phil Moon, Marketing Manager

From the drivers’ viewpoint, HeavyTorque is a must-read for those interested or associated with the heavy haulage industry. The title is very informative on a wide range of projects - not only in the UK - but worldwide. On another note, it was a personal privilege (as a driver) to be invited to the industry awards evening, The Heavies… but to then be awarded 'The Heavies Hero' in 2017 was an amazing achievement. May I say a massive thank you to my fellow peers for their continued support and nominations!

Kevin Brookes, Driver (and Heavies Hero 2017)!

Ascroft Transport
