1976 Volvo BM Article. "Kelston Sparkes - Biggest Privately Owned Volvo Fleet"

Posted by Freddie Lines on 27 September 2017



Here we have found an article dating back to 1976 written by Volvo BM (formerly Anglo Swedish). It shows that even back then we were planning for a bright future, the 8 purchased Volvo 860s took our fleet to 30. Which at that time made it the largest privately owned fleet of Volvo trucks.

Roll forward 41 years and we are still going strong operating a construction fleet of over 170 items. Including dump trucks, excavators, dozers, loading shovels, crushers, screens, rollers etc.

Its safe to say the example set by Kelston Sparkes himself is still being followed today and long may it continue.
