FTA driver of the year award – Economical Driver

Armstrong Priestley has always run its own fleet of commercial transit type vehicles used on a daily basis by our Sprinkler Installation and Service operatives. To ensure that we are able to complete contracts on programme it has always been the company’s philosophy to ensure that materials are delivered to site on time and this is why we also have our own 18 Tonne wagon complete with HIAB.  In addition to this we have our own pickup type vehicle which allows us make delivery of smaller items to site.

Armstrong Priestley has been a member of the Freight Transport Association for the last two years, ensuring that we comply with all current legislation and driving requirements.

To enable us to make deliveries we have our own HGV qualified driver, John Broughan (pictured left above). John (known to us as Sean) has been working with us for 10 years and even before joining Armstrong Priestley he had many years of experience driving all over the country.

We were pleased this year when we entered Sean for the Freight Transport Association Driver of the Year Award and we were extremely proud when Sean received the Economical Driving Award and was placed 4th in the overall competition – a great achievement Sean, well done.
