Following an invitation from Kurt Hobbs Bodybuilders (who do our lorry bodies) Richard Clark, David Bower, Tony Dewey, Luke Enderwick and Tom Little took part in the National Three Peaks Challenge in June 2012. 

For those of you who do not know this means they climbed Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales - all within 24 hours! 

Everyone worked hard to build their fitness for the mammoth task which raised much-needed funds for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.  Thank you to everyone who showed their support by sponsoring them.

February 2011 - we are proud to announce that we have been awarded the BS OHSAS 18001:2007 standard for our Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems.






Bourne Textile Services has purchased a new vehicle washing system.  In line with our policy to lessen the impact our business has on the environment each vehicle wash only takes on average 8 to 9 minutes.  The washer uses 1000 litres of water, of which 90% is reclaimed.  This means that only 100 litres of water per lorry enters the drain.  The results are noticably better than our previous pressure washer system.

The shortlist is chosen by a panel of experts from the industry.
