News: SteelPhalt’s new fleet of lorries


Rotherham road surface specialist, Steelphalt has invested £500,000 in a fleet of four new lorries.

From its plant at Templeborough, SteelPhalt specialises in the conversion of steel slag into a surface course for road making. The new DAF trucks – all fully branded with the SteelPhalt logo and colours – will be delivering the company's highly acclaimed road surface coverings around the region.

SteelPhalt has been developing and manufacturing high performance asphalt products for the UK road making industry since 1964, sourcing slag cost-effectively from the surrounding steel industry and providing a sustainable way of making asphalt, with at least 95 per cent of the product the result of the recycling process.

Part of the Harsco Metals Group, the company works in partnership with councils, local authorities and contractors nationwide to "deliver durable roads for a sustainable world."

Adding extra safety features to the fleet, the vehicles all feature cameras with 360-degree vision for the driver in the cab.

They also include the latest trackers, meaning deliveries can be much more closely monitored, improving time management for both the company and the client.

And the new lorries feature the latest fuel-efficient technology, improving transport costs, while lower emissions make the vehicles more environment friendly.

Ian Bunce, transport manager at SteelPhalt, said: "The new lorries are designed to keep our asphalt material warm, meaning it is in the same excellent condition when it reaches the site that it was when it left us.

"This represents a £500,000 investment for us and it is something we are extremely proud of.

"As we enter a new year we are delighted that these new lorries will be helping extend the SteelPhalt name even further."
