Lancashire based bulk haulage company, Fox Brothers, have seen recent expansion within the past 18 months. With their fleet size increasing from 40 to over 60 units in addition to the new trailer additions opening up more contracting and supply opportunities.
The Legras Walking Floor Trailers, with 130 cubic yard capacity, were initially acquired for landfill haulage contracting work for Recycling Lives. However, future plans for the two trailers are leading to bulk haulage of loose waste, recycling, organic and biomass materials.
Further fleet expansion has seen the addition of 2 x Scania R450 6×2 tag-axle tractor units.
The company’s rapid expansion has seen the yard premises relocated to Squires Gate Industrial Estate, based in Blackpool. The new location facilitates an increased transport yard for the fleet, recycling facility, on site fitters workshop and soon to be operational concrete plant.

“We are very proud of the company’s history, over the years, we have built and maintained strong customer relations helping us offer a range of services from Aggregates, Haulage to Demolition and Earthworks contracts. Our concrete plant is now fully operational allowing us to supply to the construction industry in and around the Fylde Coast with quality ready-mix concrete from standard prescribed mixes to bespoke designs.
