The Manchester-based operator, which also has depots in Carlisle, Derby, Kendal, Preston and Sheffield, works for some of the UK’s leading utilities and construction companies.
Gallagher operates primarily in the North and Midlands and specialises in the installation and maintenance of essential water, gas, electricity and telecoms supplies for homes, hospitals and workplaces. Like other vans on the company’s 400-strong fleet, the high-roofed, Medium-length Sprinters wear the liveries of some of its biggest customers.
As well as specifying the uprated 3.5-tonne towing capacity, Gallagher has opted for automatic transmissions to reduce driver fatigue. The new vans are also speed-limited and fitted with dashboard-mounted cameras.
Meanwhile, the vans are being fully racked out by Vehicle Conversions Ltd (VCL), of Hyde, and their cargo areas sprayed with durable, water-tight LINE-X protective coatings – these help Gallagher to maintain the highest hygiene standards while delivering for customers on clean water networks.
