Engineering Services: 0330 107 0120

At the heart of our engineering business , are our national team of HME engineers. As part of our continued and significant investment in our national service, we are delighted to have recently introduced an improved HME commercial vehicle for our team.

Having worked closely with our HME team over the last four years, to understand how they can better perform their mobile role; this has led to changes in the vans we provide. Whilst remaining with VW Crafters, our vans now benefit from a higher roof, which facilitates improved racking and the extra advantage of a built in-toolbox. High interior specification provides greater driver comfort with lane assist and all terrain tyres now included for additional safety.

Over the next 6 months we have a fleet of 28 new VW Crafters coming into our team. Craig Dean (pictured), a HME engineer across our south region, was the first within our engineering group to receive the new and improved van. Says Craig, “I am really pleased with my new van and it’s good to see the company listening to what we need, and then investing in us. The new, higher racking is ideal, the built-in toolbox is more convenient, and the VW Crafter is developed with safety in mind. Whilst I’m here to support our customers, it’s great to know United Plant want its HME team to be the most professional in the industry.”

As part of this HME investment, United Plant has chosen to work with System Edström to design and install a new solution. “We create mobile workplaces so our customers can organise their vehicles in the safest and most productive way to suit their specific requirements. This investment by United Plant, in engaging their engineers in this process represents the strength of their desire to continually improve the service they deliver, and we are delighted that System Edström has become a strategic supplier who can support their needs as they continue to grow and evolve new services.” Says Neil Robson, Regional Sales Manager at Edstrom of Sweden Ltd.

With increased roof height, improved racking solutions and the strong reputation of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles – our investment into 28 VW Crafters demonstrates our unwavering commitment to being the leading engineering provider, across the quarry and waste industry.
