Jeremy Bishop Haulage Plough on With Bandvulc Gripmaster


Aggregate specialists Jeremy Bishop Haulage continue to see the benefit of working with fellow-Devonshire tyre manufacturer, Bandvulc, choosing high-quality retread BIG-D Gripmaster construction tyres for its fleet.

Powerful Retreads Help JBH Handle Hard Core from Quarries

Jeremy Bishop Haulage (JBH) is a family-run, inert waste, recycling and tipper haulage company, which supply quarried aggregates. The company has been a Bandvulc customer for many years, which JBH credits to shared business values, as well as the retread tyres they keep using for the demanding tasks at hand.

Will Bishop, Logistics Director for JBH says, “Dealing with Bandvulc has always been easy, deliveries are made quickly and because the tyres are specifically manufactured for the construction industry, they perform and provide excellent grip in these conditions. The nature of our work means that we require a lot from our tyres as they need to perform on rough terrain without sustaining damage. Whilst our tyres rarely wear to the end of their life, Bandvulc products endure the conditions well and outperform other non-specialist tyres.”

The JBH 14-strong fleet is made up of both 6 and 8 Wheel Tippers and an Artic trailer. The company chooses Bandvulc BIG-D Gripmaster to suit the heavy-duty on and off-highway nature of their business. Developed for tough use, Bandvulc’s Gripmaster products have all been tested in harsh construction environments. The BIG-D drive axle tyre features a bespoke compound designed for resistance to punctures, cuts and damage along with an integrated kerbing band, first seen on Bandvulc’s Wastemaster range, which provides sidewall protection to help reduce damage and enhance tyre life.

Gary Williams, Bandvulc Account Manager, says, “JBH’s vehicles work hard in the quarries and tyres are put to work on aggregate, sand and stone surfaces along with gravel slopes and gradients. Bandvulc’s BIG-D tyres have a proven grip pattern and have the added benefit of a sidewall protection feature, which prevents excessive wear and damage on the shoulders and sidewalls. We’re pleased they are providing such a robust solution for JBH”.

For Will Bishop, this environmental commitment is important. He says, “We have dealt with Bandvulc for many years. Not only do we know the tyres perform, but it’s great to know that the tyres we use in our quarries are manufactured locally by a company who shares our commitment to the environment.”
