Better than a double top in darts: GOLD installer for Colliers Truck Builders Colin Simpson 

Colin served his apprenticeship at RHP Bearings becoming a maintenance engineer. In 1985 he left RHP taking up a position with Colliers. A downturn in 1989 resulted in Colin and his wife taking the opportunity to explore and travel Europe. In 1994 he was offered a job back with Colliers which he accepted and has been there ever since and is now the hydraulic shop foreman. Over the years at Colliers, Colin has fitted and set up several makes and types of crane fitting his first FASSI in 2000. Colin said that "the help and support he gets from FASSI makes the job of the installer far easier". Sue from the works office commented that "Colin achieving Gold Installer is better than a double top in a darts competition!"

Colliers Truck Builders are the major installer / bodybuilder partner of FASSI main dealer Walker Crane Services. As part of the FASSI dealer Whole Vehicle Type Approval working group,  Colliers have attained National Small Series Type Approval for the full range of front & rear mount FASSI cranes as well as flat, dropside & plant bodies.
