MCINTOSH HEAVY LOGISTICS

HeavyTorque Issue 7: McIntosh Heavy Logistics

MAN, THAT’S HEAVY!

HEAVY HAULAGE SPECIALISTS ARE THIN ON THE GROUND, EVEN WHERE THERE ARE THE BIG INDUSTRIAL OPERATIONS TO SUPPORT THEM; BUT THEY ARE EVEN MORE SPARSE NORTH OF THE BORDER. WE’VE SPOKEN TO ONE OF THE BEST-KNOWN AND PRE-EMINENT HEAVY HAULIERS IN SCOTLAND, MCINTOSH HEAVY LOGISTICS (MHL) FROM ECHT, ABERDEENSHIRE. THEY’VE JUST CELEBRATED FORTY YEARS IN BUSINESS, BUT THEIR HAULAGE ROOTS GO DEEPER THAN THAT, AS IAN NORWELL DISCOVERS.

Gary McIntosh is the third generation of his family to run haulage businesses in Aberdeenshire. His grandparents, Albert and Margaret, founded the company in 1951, gathering together a variety of skilled construction trades with a modest haulage operation to support it. The next generation, Bert McIntosh and his wife Moira, branched out into a plant hire operation in 1976, just eight miles away from the family’s original Crathes base, at Echt, and ten miles west of Aberdeen.

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?
