Suttons, a leading supplier of global logistics solutions, is supporting its continued international expansion with a £6m investment in new isotanks.
Four hundred 26,000 litre baffled tanks have been ordered from NT Tanks in China and will be delivered to Suttons from May 2010.
It means the company, which is a specialist in moving bulk liquids and chemicals around the world, has now invested over £12.5m in new tanks during the last year, increasing the size of its fleet by almost a third.
Suttons is one of the fastest growing businesses in the UK and the new tanks are vital as the company continues to develop its business with major international customers including BASF, Bayer and Huntsman.
Andrew Palmer, group managing director of Suttons, said: "This latest investment continues the process of expanding and upgrading Suttons’ tank fleet.
"It means we can respond and offer our customers increased capacity underpinned by our absolute commitment to safety and excellent levels of customer service."
Suttons’ headquarters is based in Widnes, Cheshire and operates globally with key business centres in New Jersey, Houston, Antwerp, Essen, Le Havre, Kuantan, Shanghai and Tokyo.
