WHEN IT COMES TO SAYING IT LIKE IT IS, HUTCHINSON ENGINEERING SERVICES BOSS, IAN (TINK) HUTCHINSON PULLS NO PUNCHES, AS BOB BEECH FINDS OUT ON HIS VISIT TO THIS THIS ENGINEERING COMPANY WHICH EVOLVED INTO A HEAVY HAULIER.
Many specialist heavy haulage operators like to be self reliant. The ability to maintain, repair, modify and if required build your own equipment has been an essential factor for many operators for generations. Most have had to learn the necessary skills as they went along, improving their facilities and recruiting skilled staff as the business expanded.
Nottinghamshire based Hutchinson Engineering Services Ltd, approached this issue from the opposite direction, starting out offering repair, maintenance and fabrication services to predominately agricultural customers, before branching out into heavy transport. Gradual expansion and the acquisition of bigger vehicles led to a specialist operation providing a nationwide service with outfits of up to 150 tonnes capacity. The company also offers mobile cranes, access equipment and other plant for hire, providing complete packages, including engineering, fabrication, lifting, transportation and installation.
