If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. That well-worn phrase perhaps sums up the gritty determination displayed by Nick Malpus, owner of MK Plant Transport. Over the years, he’s somewhat unconsciously shaped his own destiny with a number of roles in the plant hire and road transport sectors, on his way to running a business. He demonstrates an unwavering resolve to provide top quality service levels to a wide range of customers and this is complemented by a fine sense of humour. All essential qualities in 21st century Britain, where there’s no shortage of challenges for anyone driving, owning or operating heavy trucks.
