Site labourers usually came in groups and I think they were dropped off and collected via mini bus from outside the centre because of parking issues, Mainly polish people. Our company supplied steel and our vans had welder generators onboard so we had access to park on site as we needed to be within 20 metres of the required task (length of the welding cables). I think at that time the majority of work vans were Ford transit. The only trades that used Mercedes were window fitters as they were long wheel base.
Thank you for that.
re window fitters do you recall what company had that contract?
this is a biy of a long shot I know .. but can you recall if the the window fitting/manufacturer company was from Hartlepool?
