26 new vehicles will feature livery designs showing the Hull and Humber skyline.
Hull firm Hobson & Porter’s site teams are moving around the region in style – after a £400,000 investment in a new vehicle fleet.
The 26 new vehicles, a mix of Peugeot Boxer tipper and Vauxhall Vivero vans, have been supplied by Beerhouse Self Drive as the result of an ongoing partnership with the Yorkshire and Lincolnshire-based contractor.
The new vans feature livery designs showing the Hull and Humber skyline.
Hobson & Porter has had a presence in the region for almost 50 years.
Mike Gibbin, financial director for Hobson & Porter, said: “We have chosen to invest in this new fleet with vehicles that are more fuel-efficient and lower in emissions. The tipper trucks are also class-leading in payload, saving fuel and improving productivity.

“We have enjoyed a strong working relationship with Beerhouse Self Hire for several years and have been pleased to support another local business by continuing our service agreement with them.
Hobson & Porter is involved in major schemes including the multimillion-pound Aura Innovation Centre, at Hessle’s Bridgehead Business Park for the University of Hull. The purpose-built facility, due for completion later this year, will provide large businesses and SMEs with the space to collaborate and innovate to deliver low-carbon energy and clean growth.
The firm is also the main contractor for the £7.2 million Molecular Imaging Research Centre at Castle Hill Hospital, being constructed on behalf of the Daisy Appeal.
