Charlton – bodied golden Scania celebrates Graham Churchill Plant’s 50 years
in business

Tuesday, 12th December 2017


Celebrating 50 years of successful operation, Graham Churchill Plant Ltd has just commissioned a special ‘one-off’ golden cab Scania tipper complete with a lightweight all-steel Charlton SuperLite body.

Based in Silverstone next door to the F1 motor racing circuit, the golden Scania brings the Churchill tipper fleet up to 25 and, special paint job aside, now represents the company’s ideal tipper specification.

“The trucks we want have to be strong enough and tough enough to be able to handle any job we put them to” says Director Karen Henson, adding “whilst still delivering a top class payload. For us, Charlton’s exceptionally durable SuperLite body has proven itself to be the ideal complement to the Scania chassis.

As such, this combination is our clear fleet favourite.”

Delivering a payload of around 19,300kgs, the new truck will typically be employed on short – haul operations around Northants, Bucks and Oxon tipping multiple loads per day which can often be an ever changing mix of stone and aggregates, muck and soil, as well as recycled concrete and demolition materials.

“It’s the 100% versatility factor that we’re after” adds Karen, “and this is why Charlton bodies work so well for us. They’re strong, reliable and totally practical, so their earning power is high whilst their ownership costs are low. People tend to forget that with tippers it’s the bodies that do the really hard work – we’ve had other makes in the fleet but for day in, day out performance nothing really beats the SuperLite.”

Speaking for Charlton, Sales Director Andrew Gunn notes “With their very wide range of tipping operations, Graham Churchill Plant is perhaps the ideal customer for our SuperLite body by clearly demonstrating its outstanding versatility and cost-effectiveness in every tipping application.

Naturally we are delighted to have been chosen to body their special 50th anniversary truck, and wish Graham, Karen and their team every success for the company’s next half century!”

With additional depots in Milton Keynes and Banbury covering Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire respectively, Graham Churchill Plant offers a full range of services backing up its tipper work with plant and excavator hire, skip hire, land reclamation, waste management and recycling.

Coincidentally, the golden tipper is also the 50th brand new Scania truck bought by Churchill’s.
