Now the fleet had expanded to 20 vehicles, mainly Seddon Atkinsons and Volvos and the types of goods carried had also diversified, to include clay from local pits for delivery to Stoke-on-Trent and Hull.
The company grew in the years that followed and the fleet steadily increased, both in size and the makes of vehicles, we even purchased DAFs for the first time. By 2001 we had moved into a business sector that required the purchase of walking floor trailers. To service a contract we had to transport waste paper to recycling plants.
In November 2005 we purchased Eggbeer’s Transport from Newton Abbot, a firm who had a long history in the transportation of local clay. The company were well-known to M.Way & Son as they had worked closely together for many years. With this purchase, the fleet size increased to 44 vehicles, operating from South Molton and Newton Abbot.
In November 2006 the company relocated to purpose-built premises at Pathfields Industrial estate, on the outskirts of South Molton, where the day-to-day running of the company takes place today. The company currently operates 70 vehicles of various makes including, for the first time ever, two Renaults.
It is our friendly, professional and adaptable approach that has resulted in a strong, solid and loyal customer base. Indeed, some of the company’s very first customers of 30 years ago are still doing business with M. Way and Son Transport Ltd today.
