“We are delighted to unveil this project which will result in greater efficiency and sustainability of our rail operations throughout the UK.
“Cement is the lifeblood of UK construction and key to economic development. This new deal will see Hope able to transport bigger payloads in fewer journeys, benefitting both our customers throughout Britain, but also the environment. We look forward to realising the benefits of these state of the art wagons.
“Our cement will be transported by rail to our new Dagenham plant which is set to open in the second quarter of 2016, to then be bagged and sent on to customers throughout Britain, which is something we are particularly excited about.”
“It is a pleasure to officially unveil these new rail wagons. I am pleased to see the industry making great steps towards improving the environmental impact of their freight traffic, with more efficient, and quieter wagons, and I wish them every success in their future operations.”
Ian Shaw, Sales and Marketing Director from VTG Rail UK, said: “I am delighted that Hope Construction Materials has chosen VTG Rail UK as its supplier of new rail wagons. Both companies share similar cultures where emphasis is placed on safety, quality and reliability whilst promoting entrepreneurial behaviours.
“VTG is at the forefront of innovation in rail freight rolling stock and is able to provide the latest, most efficient wagons supported by the best customer service and technical support. These new aluminium wagons are the lightest in their class, with significantly increased payloads meaning fewer trains are needed to achieve the same annual volume.”
