Lumsden & Carroll Civil Engineering’s fleet operation outside Headquarters in Bowburn, Durham.

Lumsden & Carroll Civil Engineering part of Esh Group is a civil engineering company specialising in highways, bridges, drainage, rivers and housing. With offices in the North East, Yorkshire & Scotland they operate 30 x 8 wheel tippers on a Barum and Bandvulc BDY3 tyre policy.

Lumsden & Carroll Using TML to Manage Fleet

The fleet management for this operation is provided by Tyre Maintenance Ltd (TML), the in-house service provider for Bandvulc Tyres who in turn are part of the Continental Group.

What does this mean? The result is that all of Bandvulc’s and TML’s customers have the benefit of the full range of Continental automotive technologies through their service contracts.

TML’s Richard Tolson, the Sales Manager for the account explains, “This operation entails the fleet using rough site roads and arduous terrains so it requires a tyre with great durability. The BDY3 fits the brief completely with its tough grip tread and excellent road handling”.

Phil Bassett, Workshop Manager at Lumsden & Carroll Civil Engineering stated, “Tyre Maintenance has supported us for several years now and their service has always been excellent. They have demonstrated a knowledge and understanding of our tyre requirements through rigorous testing.”

Bassett contined, “The Bandvulc BDY3 has out-performed its competitors and is delivering a lower cost per mile return which will ultimately reduce our overall tyre costs. They provide a dedicated tyre technician that takes a pride in our fleet and we hold a great working relationship with them.”
