Cardy Haulage Contractors, based at Fornham St Genevieve, near Bury St Edmunds, which delivers sand, gravel and recycled materials such as crushed brick and concrete, has acquired a second DAF grab loader which is well-suited for supplying smaller projects.

Wendy Cardy, speaking for the family-owned business, said: “The new grab loader is particularly popular with small independent construction companies who are seeing an increase in the number of individual home build and other commercial projects in the county.

“There is a new confidence in this type of building project which is why we have invested in the new truck, and we hope to see this additional activity continue as it is a sign that things are picking up across all sectors.”

The new vehicle was supplied by Suffolk and Cambridgeshire DAF dealership ChassisCab, which has been supplying Cardy for 20 years.

Stuart Danson of ChassisCab said: “The DAF CF85 grab loader will help this much-admired local haulage business to continue its good work in the region offering a quick response, quality service as a one-stop supplier of aggregates and materials handling equipment.”

ChassisCab, which is also a family owned business, has been the main DAF dealer for Suffolk since the early 1990s and DAF service dealer for Cambridgeshire since 2006.

Having started out as a commercial vehicle accident repair centre, ChassisCab has grown to become one of the leading dealers for DAF and a major supplier of trucks in eastern the region.

It has bases at Addison Way in Great Blakenham, near Ipswich, Northern Way in Bury St Edmunds, and Isleham, Cambridgeshire, and employs more than 110 members of staff across the three sites.
