NMT CRANE HIRE: DAF XF 510 FTT

COVER STORY

HeavyTorque Issue Four: NMT Cranes

BOOM TIME

A WELL-ESTABLISHED CRANE HIRE OPERATOR IS WEDDED TO HIS DAFS: HIS FIFTH TRACTOR JOINED THE FLEET IN APRIL. HE’S HAPPY WITH HIS TRUCKS, BUT HE’D LIKE TO FIND A WAY AROUND THE 100 TONNE BARRIER FOR HIS BALLAST WEIGHT MOVEMENTS – IT’S COSTING HIM MONEY. IAN NORWELL WENT TO SEE HIM.

PHOTOGRAPHY: CRAIG PUSEY

Headquartered in the village of Marston Moretaine in Bedfordshire, NMT Crane Hire was born out of a commercial recovery company set up by three brothers in the long, hot summer of 1976. Nick, Mark and Tim Ambridge gave their initials to the enterprise, but they soon realised that the cranes, which had become a necessary part of their business, were actually making more money. Managing director Mark told us: “The commercial recovery business had been going pretty well – and it certainly got us off the ground – but it soon became apparent that there was more profit in the crane-hire services we were developing.” He added: “In 1992 we bought our first 200 tonne crane and let the recovery business go. Which let us specialise in the heavy lift sector, and develop our expertise there.”

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
