While the British economy has undergone many dramatic changes in the past three decades, with far less focus upon heavy industry, there’s still a great deal of specialist engineering undertaken by many companies. The machines and equipment used by these companies are very sophisticated with one machine carrying out a range of tasks that used to require a number of smaller machines. This creates a whole new range of challenges for specialist machine transport and installation companies.

Handling modern computer numeric controlled machines requires highly trained, multi-skilled staff, capable of operating a wide range equipment. Companies competing in this sector tend to be relatively long established concerns, often run by individuals who, above all, relish a challenge. Many of the techniques that were developed in the early years of the operation, when vehicles and equipment were far less sophisticated, have been adapted for the modern era and have been passed on to new generations of staff.

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?

Single Issues

If you prefer to purchase individual issues (one at a time), you will still have the ability to do so, both online (via the website), or by calling our offices +44 (0) 1572 3450872. Orders for single issues received before the pre-publication deadline will be mailed along with the subscribers.
