Keep on Trucking with Cembrit!
The Cembrit name can now be see the length and breadth of the UK thanks to a new lorry-side advertising campaign. The company is promoting its Cemsix corrugated sheeting on haulage partner, Powerfreight Ltd’s, 40” trailers - the vehicle fleet that transports Cembrit products on the UK road network.
Powerfreight Ltd is a member of the RHA (Road Haulage Association) and based in Thamesmead, so a close neighbour of Cembrit. The partnership is mutually beneficial and a natural fit according to Ged Ferris, Marketing Manager of Cembrit:
“When Powerfreight were looking for new livery for some of their trucks, we proposed joining forces and creating a large scale advert for Cemsix. As the UK road network is so busy, the campaign gives us the opportunity to reach the rural and farming community who may have a future interest in our corrugated sheet as well as a mobile audience in a high impact and cost-effective way.”
Powerfreight has a six vehicle fleet and has been operating in the haulage business for ten years. For Cembrit, the company delivers primarily pitched roofing and corrugated sheeting products. The trailer incorporates an on-board fork lift truck (FLT) capable of lifting three tonnes of material while also coping with the awkward dimensions of the Cemsix corrugated sheets. This also allows the company to offload at the premises of an agricultural frame manufacturer (AFM) or construction site, an often awkward task for a general haulage company.
Cemsix is the perfect solution in roofing and cladding for farm buildings: it is a high density material, with a fully compressed 6” profile and offers a full range of accessories.
