New Volvo hits the road

Burcombe’s smart new Volvo has had plenty of positive comments and compliments after its first trip to the TPN Hub last night. It’s the first FM500 tractor unit with dual clutch gearbox in the UK and will be a valuable addition to the fleet.

Mercedes-Benz Transport magazine

Burcombe feature in the latest issue of Mercedes-Benz Transport magazine, with a focus on our 8×4 Arocs ENAs which are used at Burcombe and at our sister company B&C Concrete.

These trucks have impressive manoeuvrability and significantly improved turning circles which are ideal for the narrow lanes of the South West.

Burts Chips on board

Delighted to be working with Burts Chips; Burcombe’s Stuart Wilkie with Burts’ Stuart Watkins and the first trailer bulk load delivery of locally sourced potatoes to be made into their famous potato chips.

Burcombe BBQ

Thanks to everyone who popped along to Friday’s social, in true British summer style it wasn’t quite BBQ weather but it did at least stay dry – and we had good food and music!

Next social for your diaries will be Saturday 15th September – more details to follow.

Annual training morning at Burcombe

It was a warm morning for the annual health and safety training session in the Burcombe yard at the weekend. Groups of drivers attended refresher workshops on tipper, sweeper and mixer maintenance and updates, company news and annual checks, as well as a fire safety demonstration by Phoenix Fire Consultancy.

The morning was fuelled by Helluva pasties and was a successful and beneficial morning for all!

Health & Safety Accreditations Gained

Burcombe Haulage have been successful in obtaining additional accreditations in health and safety. Completing the Contractor and Non-Construction SMAS SSIP accreditation for 2018/19 as well as the health and safety accreditation for the CQMS Safety Scheme, puts the company not only up to date with regulations but also enables the opportunity for further tender contracts in future.
