April 2008 saw the Widdowson Group of companies take delivery of their 250th Scania truck at the company’s head office in Glenfield, Leicester. The vehicle, a Scania P230DB4x2MNA curtainsider, was supplied by Keltruck’s Ivor Morris and now operates within their national distribution fleet.

This purchase was part of an order for 35 Scania trucks, a mix of twenty R480 3 axled Topline tractor units and fifteen 2 axled P230 rigids supplied in the first half of 2008.

Harry Hawksworth, Widdowson’s Technical Director, said “This investment on behalf of the Widdowson Group of Companies demonstrates our continued confidence in the Scania product to meet high expectations and to deliver in the very tough, competitive market that exists today.”
