We recently supplied a pair of Bradshaw Tow Tractors to a leading wholesale producer of a quality collection of garden products which includes pack & pot bedding, planted containers and hanging baskets.
A family-owned and run business, Ornamental Plants Ltd was established in 1991 and now regularly supplies leading retailers such as Asda, Homebase, Wyevale Garden Centres and Home Bargains. With a nursery and glasshouse facility covering more than 26 acres, Ornamental Plants Ltd is a busy, thriving environment and the company manufactures products of extremely high quality.
With such a large amount of produce to manage, the logistics at Ornamental Plants Ltd must be flawless in order to ensure the smooth operation of its day-to-day business. This involves the movement of many trolleys of plants from nursery to loading area, which is facilitated with the use of Bradshaw Tow Tractors.
Established in 1960, John Bradshaw Ltd grew to become an extremely successful plant hire and access platform supplier and, in 1975, added Bradshaw Electric Vehicles as a division of the company. As of 2012, 80% of the company’s materials handling vehicles were designed and manufactured in the UK, compared to just 10% in 1980 – Bradshaw Electric Vehicles complete their fleet options with vehicles from US-based Taylor-Dunn, a company they have worked with since the beginning.
Carrylift Group are proud to supply material handling equipment from Bradshaw Electric Vehicles and can happily report that the new tow tractors are performing to optimum capacity, enabling the swift, safe and reliable transport of the often-delicate products supplied by Ornamental Plants Ltd.
Every business is unique and Carrylift Group can design a bespoke material handling equipment package designed to suit yours precisely. Allow our expert team to visit your site and apply their extensive knowledge and experience before offering the perfect solution.
