Lion Becomes World's No.1 in Aluminium Trakway
As part of our major growth plan, we have ordered 13,000 of our unique LIONtrack panels to increase stock to a total of over 43,000 panels.
This figure doesn’t mean much to most of us but if installed, the stock would achieve a temporary roadway from London to Folkestone, making LION the largest stockholder of aluminium temporary roadways in the World, an impressive achievement in just 5 years.
LION’s marketing manager Mark Tennant said “2014 has seen an increase in overall demand and long-term contract agreements, reinforcing our confidence that the industry is very strong. We have run at full capacity over this summer and this year’s uncertain weather has resulted in a need for more flexibility around recovery dates. This investment allows us to have that flexibility, giving our customers peace of mind".
Director Dale Robinson explained, “LIONtrack is the 5th generation of panel, since my father invented the first ever back in the 1960s. It’s the latest system available, safer, stronger and faster to install and I'm delighted it is currently shortlisted in the Event Technology Awards. Because it’s made from 100% recycled aluminium and still 100% recyclable at the end of its life, it’s really eco-friendly. This move will also include substantial investment in the vehicle fleet and see the creation of many more new jobs in the company”.
