Increasing demand has resulted in Gloucestershire independent haulier Cullimore Group invest in a fabrication operation at its 23-acre Frampton-upon-Severn head office site expanding into a new facility three times the size of its predecessor. The additional space will allow Cullimore Fabrications to work on up four trucks at any given time, with the current warehouse earmarked for new services.

In addition, Cullimore has invested in new welding equipment, including a new plasma cutter, to meet the changing and increasing demand. This comes off the back of a strong performance from the company’s HGV MOT testing operation, as a result of a backlog caused by Covid-19, and the concrete production side of the business – Cullimore Mix – reporting its strongest November and December trading period in its history.

Moreton Cullimore, managing director of the family-run group of companies, said: “In recent months, the demand for our fabrication and welding services has surged. With the increased space and the ability to service more vehicles per hour, we can keep up this momentum and take Cullimore Fabrications further than ever. While commercial vehicles will naturally be our primary focus, we can also template corporate images into metal as well as fabricate gates and railings.

“Welding is a dying art, which is why I’m excited to bring something unique to both our business and the areas we operate in. The new equipment will aid us at the Cullimore Group to make full use of the warehouse space and the capabilities of our team as we play our part in clearing this backlog.”

The plasma cutter is now in place, with operations the new facility already underway.

As well as widening the available space, the Cullimore Group is looking to trial a 24-hour maintenance operation later this year.

The Cullimore Group of Companies was established in 1927 and is a leading supplier of transport and general haulage services to the counties of Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire and Avon & Somerset.
