The popular Halton East site, located on Harrogate Road, Skipton, has undergone a revamp in order to accommodate the Express Asphalt Collection facility. The facility officially opened its door to collect customers on the 2nd of April (2018).
The new service means that, for the first time in the area, customers are able to pre-order from the business’ vast portfolio of asphalt solutions at their convenience, before collecting their order from the plant. The result is shorter turnaround times and improved efficiencies on site, meaning customers can get to their jobs quicker and, ultimately, get more work done.
In addition, the site has been kitted out with its very own Express Shop, offering a range of contractor tools and equipment including bituminous products, joint sealants, overbanding, cleaning and release agents, as well as pre-coated chippings and gas. The benefit is that busy customers can now pick up any last minute extras they may need when picking up their asphalt order, thus saving them valuable time when carrying out contract work. The shop will also boast free snacks and drinks, which customers can take advantage of while waiting for their loads.
The collection service can be accessed via the Express Asphalt app and the Express Collect app, which offers a ‘click and collect’ service enabling customers to order asphalt, or tools and equipment, and pick it up from any one of the business’ Express Asphalt depots.
David Shaw, Area Manager for Express Asphalt in the North Region, said: “We know that our customers are under immense time and cost pressures, so we want to do everything we can to make their lives that little bit easier.
“We have therefore invested in updating our popular Halton East asphalt plant to include the Express Collection service, meaning customers can pre-order their specification to collect. The increased service offer ensures that customers can get a wide range of materials and equipment to carry out their work with a quick turnaround time.
“Alongside this, we’ve launched an Express Shop on site too, meaning customers can get their hands on all types of tools, as well as refreshments, when they come to pick up their order.
“The result is the ultimate one-stop-shop for the full scope of asphalt needs in the North Yorkshire region – and we’d urge all customers, new and existing, to take advantage of this fantastic new service offer.”
Both the Express Asphalt and the Express Collect apps are now available to download from the App Store or Play Store for IOS and Android.
