A leading independent LPG supplier has invested in two new Krone trailers to support the next phase of its expansion.

Based near Stamford Bridge in North Yorkshire, Rectory Gas Supplies provides LPG gas to homes, businesses and the trade, throughout Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and Humberside. The company has recently expanded into Norfolk and needed two trailers to support this new operation.

David Barton, operations manager at Rectory Gas Supplies and co-owner of the business, said: “We needed two trailers for transporting gas bottles and cylinders from our headquarters to the Norwich depot, and to bring back the empties. The Krone trailers are exactly what we were looking for as they are robust and easy to use – and built to a high standard.”

Rectory Gas Supplies, which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, provides propane and butane gas bottles as well as new LPG gas bulk tanks. It also stocks LPG appliances including BBQs and valves.

“Overall, we are very happy with the trailers and with the overall service from Krone UK,” added David. “They stuck to their word on everything, we never had to chase them, and everything was done to the letter. The driver who makes the runs to and from Norwich is very happy with them as well.”

The Krone trailers for Rectory Gas Supplies are flatbed with drop sides. They include fully welded, double-T longitudinal beams and cross members, with a 40mm thick hardwood floor. They feature the Krone award-winning Multi Lock side rave with load securing positions every 100mm.

The patented Multi Lock side rave forms part of the Krone Multi Safe load securing system, which is designed to help minimise the risk of loads becoming detached and causing injury, damage or loss.

Multi Lock is supplied with up to 126 strapping points on each side of the vehicle, creating more than 3,000 ways of securing the load. The system can be combined with a range of options, such as screwable pallet stops, lashing rings or a chain adaptor.

“Our business continues to grow because we work hard to provide a quality service at a competitive price,” added David. “That means we need trailers that are easy to load and unload, as well as being durable enough to deliver a strong return on investment.

“At the end of the day we are transporting gas, so safety is paramount. The Krone trailers meet or exceed every safety standard and requirement.”

Krone UK offers a comprehensive range of trailers including container chassis, curtainsider, refrigerated semi, and dry freight box. It also stocks spare parts and provides aftersales care to a growing customer base throughout the UK and Ireland.
