It’s very important for all long-established companies to acknowledge the history and development of the enterprise – this brings a sense of direction and achievement to any organisation. This is particularly relevant with family concerns, where different generations have striven to build the business, often taking the operation in new directions, making their own mark upon both the company and family history.

If a company has a keen sense of its development through the generations, there are numerous ways to celebrate this and one of the most obvious ways for a transport company to display its history is by having a special vehicle, a company flagship that really stands out and tells the story behind the business.

McFadyens Transport, the long-established operator from Campbeltown, Argyll, on the Kintyre peninsula, has just completed the restoration of a very special Scania R164/580 Longline 8x4 tractor unit. It celebrates the memory of the previous generation and demonstrates just how far the business has progressed, particularly in recent years.

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?

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.
