SK chooses FH

SK Distribution of Buxton, a Palletways network member and express pallet delivery specialist, gained a new owner late last year – and with a new broom has now come new metal as well, in the form of a new Volvo FH500 6×2 tractor unit.

“I came into the business as general manager about a year ago and I’ve worked with Volvo throughout my career,” says Vic Smith, now MD of the Derbyshire-based haulier. “I’ve had my own trucks before and ran Volvo because they’ve always been spot-on for me.”

Supplied by Mark Lingard, customer solutions manager at Thomas Hardie Commercials Ltd, the new Volvo FH tractor is fitted with a Globetrotter cab and D13K engine rated at 500hp.
