JOHN SOMERSCALES, MD, JOHN SOMERSCALES LTD

MANAGING DIRECTOR OF JOHN SOMERSCALES LTD. JOHN HAS OVER 30 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN THE HEAVY TRANSPORT INDUSTRY FROM WORKSHOP TO SENIOR MANAGEMENT LEVEL

Somerscales Heavy Haulage, based in Immingham, is the longest established currently active heavy haulage company in the UK, and can trace its history back to 1900 when it began transporting timber using horses. The following years saw them continue to transport timber before moving into abnormal loads, where the rapid expansion of the motorway network saw Somerscales transporting large numbers of pre-cast concrete beams from a wide range of factories. Being based next to one of the UK’s busiest ports means the company now moves all manner of abnormal loads. For this first in a new series called TorquingHeads, Dave Weston caught up with John Somerscales, great-grandson of the founder, to gather his thoughts on all manner of industry topics.
