HeavyTorque Issue Thirteen: JK Ashbrook

THE REWARDS OF HIRE

IN JUST TWO YEARS, JK ASHBROOK HAS GROWN ITS TRANSPORT BUSINESS FROM BEING SOLELY AN OFFSHOOT OF ITS PLANT HIRE ACTIVITIES TO A STANDALONE HAULAGE DIVISION WITH AN ENVIABLE REPUTATION FOR SERVICE AMONG BOTH LONG TERM BLUE CHIP CLIENTS AND ONE-OFF CUSTOMERS. MARGO COLE REPORTS.

The company has built its success on that of the group as a whole, a family-owned company, based in Congleton, Cheshire, with contracts throughout the north west. Like many in the haulage business, JK Ashbrook’s roots are in agriculture: founder James Ashbrook is embedded in the local farming community, and in 2001 started running an agricultural contracting business from his father’s farm, which included delivering tractors and trailers from farm to farm.
