Tomato Plant growth driven by tanker work

  • 12 June 2013
  • By Chris Druce

Tomato Plant, the heavy haulage operator based in Iver, Buckinghamshire, has put in an application to extend its O-licence after a diversification into tankers late last year paid off.

The firm, headed by MD Keith Williams and celebrating its second anniversary in business (1 June), recently extended its O-licence to 15 vehicles and has now requested another ten.

Williams, who sold Comet Tankers to Pims Group in 2009, returned to the tanker market at the start of the year following the cessation of a restriction on doing so, which was enforced after the sale.

Specialising in drainage services, including removal of waste from pumping stations, sewers and airside work at Heathrow Airport, Tomato Plant sub-contracts for water companies and a client that provides toilets for events such as the London to Brighton bike ride and at Ascot racecourse.

“We have seven tankers now, rigids and three artics, and all our drivers receive Street Works training so we’re all multi-skilled,” Williams told Commercialmotor.com. “I’m very pleased with how it’s going.”

Williams, who also drives the units, now has three full time office staff and fourteen drivers to call on (as the tankers are often double-shifted) at the business.
