A Look Back in Time To The 1970’s & 1980’s At Newell & Wright Group

It is now over 41 years ago since the formation of the Newell & Wright Group when Frank Newell and Paul Wright established the business. In those early days, we were a very small general haulage company, operating from rented premises. Over the following years we have grown substantially in size, resulting in the company changing premises three times before moving to the current 6.5 acre freehold site at Tinsley, Sheffield in 1987. We thought we would share some images with you from our earlier years.A Look Back in Time To The 1970’s & 1980’s At Newell & Wright GroupA Look Back in Time To The 1970’s & 1980’s At Newell & Wright GroupA Look Back in Time To The 1970’s & 1980’s At Newell & Wright GroupA Look Back in Time To The 1970’s & 1980’s At Newell & Wright GroupA Look Back in Time To The 1970’s & 1980’s At Newell & Wright Group

The same year NWT Freight Forwarding was formed enabling us to offer our customers a variety of other freight solutions. These days, the Newell & Wright group has an annual turnover of in excess of £50 million and an excellent financial status.

We employ over 300 personnel, many of whom have remained with the company as we have expanded. We can attribute our growth and success to delighting our customers, old and new, with the value for money and excellent all round services that we provide.

Volvo F88 Restoration Project Update

Newell & Wright are undertaking a long term restoration of a Volvo F88 Truck. The Volvo F88 was a heavy vehicle introduced in 1964. It was a particularly advanced vehicle for its time, with an all-steel-constructed cab at a time when some British manufacturers were still producing wood-framed with alloy panelling vehicles. Also, unusually for the late 1960s, it was available with a sleeper cab with additional space behind the driver where a bunk was fitted.Volvo F88 Restoration Project UpdateVolvo F88 Restoration Project UpdateVolvo F88 Restoration Project UpdateVolvo F88 Restoration Project UpdateVolvo F88 Restoration Project Update
