Scania R Curtainside Beatty's Fuels, Ballinamallard, Northern Ireland
Product Code: CC13755
George Beatty began trading in Ballinamallard in 1979 in the backyard of his father’s grocery and confectionery business. The early days of the business were before the arrival of the fork lift which meant that fuel products such as coal doubles and peat briquettes were delivered directly to the customer’s door on the Coalman’s back.
Since its humble beginnings, Beatty Fuels has become one of the largest family owned businesses that remains independent of the international oil and coal businesses that dominate today, employing over 40 people from Ballinamallard and the surrounding area.
With a fleet consisting of nine Artic Tractor Units, including Scanias, DAFs, Volvos, MAN and Mercedes, four Rigid Oil Tankers, two Rigid 6 Wheelers and a wide range of Rigid units for supplying Gas and Coal to domestic customers, including the Scania R Curtainside modelled here.
