“...we’ve been very impressed with the advice and service we’ve received from Dawsonrentals”

Mark Mosby, Warehouse and Dispatch Coordinator

REGAIN Polymers, based in Allerton Bywater, West Yorkshire, is one of the UK’s leading plastic recyclers.  And the company continue to grow,  thanks to its unique ability to recycle difficult post-consumer, as well as post-industrial, plastic scrap.

Working in the recycling sector means that environmental performance is always front of mind for the company, right down to the forklift trucks it uses. So when REGAIN needed to replace their forklift fleet at their 50,000 tonne capacity site they chose Doosan, and their authorised partner, Dawsonrentals.

Mark Mosby, warehouse and dispatch coordinator for REGAIN, explains: “We wanted a supplier that could work with us to ensure we didn’t have to worry about the suitability and reliability of the vehicles, and which could supply trucks that were also more environmentally friendly.”

Michael Wood, of Dawsonrentals MHE, says: “We recommended the Doosan trucks for their simple but robust design, oil-cooled disc brakes and work-friendly design features which reduce downtime and repair costs. For example, the oil-cooled disc brakes are completely enclosed and sealed to protect the inner workings of the brake system from outside contaminants such as baling wire, dust, and rubbish. This is a hugely important feature for many working environments but especially those found in the recycling and waste sector.”

“We wanted a supplier that could work with us to ensure we didn’t have to worry about the suitability and reliability of the vehicles, and which could supply trucks that were also more environmentally friendly.”

REGAIN ordered a new fleet of seventeen LPG-fuelled trucks from Dawsonrentals consisting of eleven G18S-5s, four G25E-5s, one reach truck and a G33P-5 with a large bucket attachment.

Since REGAIN started using the new trucks, operators have particularly commented on the ideal positioning of the horn mounted on the rear grab handle. This is an important safety feature when undertaking the many reversing manoeuvres which are necessary each day.

“Our operators find the new vehicles easier to use – and they also use less fuel, with reduced emissions, so meeting our aim of a more environmentally-friendly operation. Overall we’ve been very impressed with the advice and service we’ve received from Dawsonrentals.”  says Mark Mosby—warehouse and dispatch coordinator for REGAIN
