Our feature on Hutchinson Engineering in this issue of HeavyTorque highlights the group’s haulage operations. However, its latest venture, Specialist Trailer Services UK, offers a full range of maintenance, repair and refurbishment services for all makes of specialist trailers and associated equipment. It trades as a separate company from a large facility on a site a few miles further north on the old A1 trunk road from Hutchinson’s headquarters.

The man in charge, Mick Rhodes, will be familiar to many heavy hauliers as the erstwhile boss at Nooteboom’s Corby workshop. With a depth of practical experience of the Dutch manufacturer’s products, he was the go-to man if you had a problem with a Nooteboom trailer. For many operators his ability to diagnose faults over the phone is the stuff of legend. Many drivers, stuck on the side of the road, have been very grateful to get going again after speaking to Rhodes.
