Raven Roofing Supplies takes delivery of new 26t vehicles from FVTH

Continuing the long partnership the family-run firms have built over the last 25 years, FVTH has recently handed over the first four DAF CF320 26t vehicles to Raven Roofing Supplies

Built to a FVTH specification, the DAFs have rearmount HIAB remote control cranes, Bevan dropside bodies, and are fully DVS compliant, through Spillards 4-way recordable cameras and human detection system.

The vehicles will be supporting three of the Raven Roofing Supplies’ locations in Hawkhurst, Thatcham and Basingstoke. Continual investment in its fleet means that Raven Roofing Supplies can ensure that it delivers to its customers and remain one of the leading independent roofing merchants in the south of England.

Continuing the long partnership between the family-run firms, FVTH has recently handed over four DAF CF320 26t vehicles to Raven Roofing Supplies. 

Initially established as a contracting company in 1972 and now managed by second generation directors from its founding families, the business has grown into a five branch, multi-depot operation making daily deliveries of an extensive range of roofing materials to an area that stretches from the coastal regions of East Kent across to the West country and up into the South Midlands.

FVTH, meanwhile, is commercial truck and van lease and hire company that was founded in 1985 as Farnborough Van & Truck Hire. Offering full service advice and partnership to all its customers, the business provides a complete range of contract hire solutions and rental fleet support from its bases in Portsmouth and Colnbrook, and in association with third party suppliers across the country.
