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.

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?
