Sir Balin and Sir Clegis are newest Knights

TWO more Palletforce trucks will be hitting the roads after Knights of Old upgraded its fleet.

The Kettering-based company has invested in two new orange-liveried 18 tonne Scania trucks – taking the number of new additions to their fleet this year up to 14.

In keeping with the Knights of Old tradition of naming their vehicles after knights from the Arthurian legend the trucks have been called Sir Balin and Sir Clegis.

"In order to cope with the steadily increasing demand we have experienced we have taken this opportunity to invest in our fleet,” said Ian Beattie, Managing Director of Knights Of Old.

"By expanding our fleet we are not only meeting the extra demands that have been placed on us with the level of high service we have become known for, but we are also in a strong position to facilitate future growth.”

Knights of Old has been a member of Palletforce – the UK’s leading palletised distribution network – for the past five years.

The two new Palletforce trucks – which will operate in the London area – are in addition to two trailers that the company operates in Palletforce’s livery.

"It is brilliant to work with forward-looking companies who know the value of re-investment and providing a consistent reliable service,” said Michael Conroy, Chief Executive of Palletforce.

"Our members continue to perform strongly and their customers continue to trust both them and Palletforce because they know they will receive quality, efficient service built on years of experience.”
