UK Container Maintenance (UKCM), a leading container repair and refurbishment specialist, has bolstered its distribution fleet with the addition of two new vehicles showcasing updated livery.

The Winsford-based firm has invested in a duo of state-of-the-art DAF trucks, introducing the first of the new fleet design since UKCM joined the Impact Environmental Group (IEG). The re-energised livery, which incorporates the branding of the wider group and its UK-based companies, was designed by UKCM’s Finance and Operations Director Liz Wolstenholme, who is also the CPC holder for the firm’s operator’s license, and Liz Roth, Global Director of Marketing & Brand Integration at IEG.

The high-specification DAF XG480 vehicles, supplied by Rowleys of Northwich, offer optimal efficiency, safety and comfort; each is equipped with a 12-speed automated gearbox, adaptive cruise control, lane departure and forward collision warning systems, and are a Euro 6 emissions level. Additionally, the vehicles boast air management for ultimate aerodynamics, an air-suspended driver’s seat, and a luxurious XG new generation high roof sleeper cab, amongst other amenities.

Liz Wolstenholme, Finance and Operations Director of UKCM, comments: “This recent substantial investment, introducing to the business more enhanced and efficient vehicles, represents a significant move for UKCM as we embark upon the next chapter as part of the IEG group. The new additions, with their fresh look and nationwide distribution, will strongly cement our brand presence and wider offering across the length and breadth of the country.”

Liz Roth, Global Director of Marketing & Brand Integration at IEG added: “These state-of-the-art vehicles represent cutting-edge transportation technology and mark a significant milestone in introducing IEG’s family of brands together. With our updated branding, each vehicle stands as a testament to our commitment to excellence and our vision for a future where quality and sustainability go hand in hand. This fleet is more than just a means of transportation; it’s a symbol of our journey towards reshaping the industry and delivering unparalleled value to our customers.”

Established in 1998 and now part of the Impact Environmental Group (IEG), UKCM is dedicated to refurbishing all types of waste and recycling containers. UKCM works across the country offering, waste companies and local authorities, mobile repairs, as well as factory-based services at its head office located, in Winsford, Cheshire.

The process brings old, and often unwanted, waste containers back to life instead of them going to scrap. The business model – refurbishment over replacement – is simple.
