Collett & Sons Ltd partner with Mansfield Pollard to deliver their largest project to date. Mansfield Pollard have cemented their longstanding relationship with Collett Transport, entering in to a two-year partnership to deliver over 300 specialist air handling systems from their Bradford based manufacturing facility.

Having recently secured the largest single order in its 153-year history, Mansfield Pollard will be designing, manufacturing and installing critical air management solutions for state-of-the-art data centres over the next two years and beyond. The data centre industry is one of the fastest growing technologies in the world, with cloud based data exponentially increasing the amount of server storage required. Mansfield Pollard are at the forefront of this technology and will be manufacturing custom-built units, to maintain a stable climate and environment 24/7/365 for storage server racks across the UK. 

Utilising their diverse general haulage and crane vehicle fleet, the Collett Team will undertake the transport and delivery of these specialist units. Collett will also provide secure indoor storage facilities, both at their Halifax Head office Depot and at their Goole Heavy Lift Terminal. Throughout the entirety of this project, the storage of these units will allow Mansfield Pollard to continue with their critical production schedule, with Collett working to and reacting to Mansfield Pollard’s transport requirements to ensure the delivery programme is executed in a professional and timely manner.

“Having worked with Mansfield Pollard for several years we’re delighted to announce the partnership of our two highly established Yorkshire companies,” states Michael Harland, Collett & Sons Ltd Sales Manager. “As their preferred logistics partner, Mansfield Pollard have always valued the service provided by Collett & Sons and we’re extremely proud to assist with the delivery of this prestigious project for a reputable local company.”

Mansfield Pollard places customers at the heart of everything it does, and it was imperative that any logistics partner followed the same ethos. Similarly, they required a company with the size and capacity to deliver, the flexibility to adapt to any changing deadlines and perhaps, most importantly, a willingness to work together to get the job done.

“Like Mansfield Pollard, Collett are industry leaders in their field. It was vitally important that we partnered with a company who represented us with ultimate professionalism at the client face and that would act as an extension of our own business. Collett’s quality of service is second to none and I am delighted to be working closely with them on this prestigious project,” added Bryan Bentley, Operations Director, Mansfield Pollard & Co Ltd.
