OLDER THAN HIS YEARS

NOT EVERY ABNORMAL LOAD OPERATOR RUNS TOWERS OF SHINING NEW STEEL, CHROME AND GLASS. SOME DO PERFECTLY GOOD WORK WITH USED VEHICLES, AND VITALLY, ROOTS IN THE HAULAGE INDUSTRY. IAN NORWELL VISITED KYLES TRANSPORT SERVICES LTD (KTS) BASED NEAR NEWPORT, SOUTH WALES, A BUSINESS RUN BY A YOUNG MAN WITH AN APPRECIATION OF WHAT KEEPS CUSTOMERS HAPPY.

Setting up a business in the haulage industry at the age of seventeen has to mean that you’re keen. Kyle Hourihane’s father, Paul, and his Grandfather Albert, were already established hauliers in Newport, South Wales. It’s a third-generation business, but Hourihane has taken his part of the company away from regular haulage, and into the sphere of abnormal load (AL) work. Operating from the same base as his father, their two businesses complement each other, with the depth of over 30 year’s experience in his father’s hands, and the extra bowstring of AL work in his. “We don’t agree about everything,” says Hourihane, “But I like to think that I’ve been running my side of the business for long enough, for us to learn from each other.” But he’s the first to admit that he certainly wouldn’t be where his is without the benefit of his father’s experience.

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?
