Ground protection specialist Davis Trackhire relied on Asset Alliance to help fund two new Scanias for its fleet – as well as £2m of aluminium trackway panels.

The Scottish firm first approached the group about extending its 10-strong truck fleet and it agreed a five-year full-service finance hire agreement.

But when it realised it also provided finance for all capital expenditure, it asked Asset Alliance to fund investment in its stock of aluminium trackway panels – used to create access over soft ground in industries such as film and television and construction.

Davis Trackhire co-owner Blake Davis said: “We had been aware of Asset Alliance Group because of their reputation in trucks and trailers, but we didn’t know they could also help fund new track for us.”

Each new Scania is mounted with a 3.5m flatbed body built by PMH Coachbuilders, together with a Palfinger crane and subframe to enable loading and unloading in any location.

It operates with an SDC tri-axle flatbed trailer with the full combination purpose-designed to transport aluminium trackway panels nationwide.
