Launch of the PermaPave Mobile Resin Bound Gravel Shop

Due to the time critical nature of resin bound gravel installations, laying time can be interrupted by sudden changes to circumstances.

These changes can be difficult to businesses – including machinery or tooling issues, changes in weather or material shortages. Contractors often have to abandon a working day in order to find replacement parts, tools or materials.

A solution is on hand. The introduction of the PermaPave mobile shop means we can offer contractors a solution to machine breakdowns, catalysts to affect curing times or tooling to replace breakages.

How the PermaPave mobile shop will work

The PermaPave van will be servicing construction contractors within a fifty-mile radius of our HQ in Chesterfield, Derbyshire – so it is available to most of Yorkshire and the Midlands.

The van stocks a range of products for the booming resin bound gravel sector, including Ox Tools and The Resin Bull, Leeson Polyurethane resins, catalysts and primers as well as acting as a mobile service vehicle for the range of SoRoTo forced action mixers.

The PermaPave van is a highly modified Peugeot Boxer van which has been retrofiited by MoreVan of Chesterfield to include a powerful inverter and battery array, allowing forced action mixers to be powered on site for both demonstration and diagnostic purposes.

The internal area of the van has also been fitted with storage cabinetry, a till area and point of sale displays akin to those found in a conventional builders merchants.

This solution means we have the ability to supply materials, carry out on-site repairs and offer additional accessories such as workwear.

The external aesthetics were completed by Signature Branding of Sheffield, who transformed the van from plain, unnoticeable white to a vibrant and conspicuous branded design.
