Parker Building Supplies – Building confidence

Date Posted: 21-02-2014

Parker Building Supplies is the south east’s leading independent builder’s merchant. One of the first builders merchants to take on the challenge of stabilizer interlocks, they took delivery of their first FSC equipped cranes in early 2011 with three FASSI F150AXP’s rear mounted on DAF 26t chassis with bodies supplied by Charlton Bodies of Dover. Parkers worked with Paul Nielson our after sales manager and the Fassi factory to tweak and perfect FSC for their specific application, to allow the cranes to safely work in restricted spaces where the outrigger cannot be fully deployed and on significant inclines.

Graham Lillywhite, Transport Manager, Parker Building Supplies explained: “I’ve never met any company as proactive as Fassi and Walkers have been. They are committed to us as a company and have bent over backwards to accommodate us. The Fassi factory in Italy has written new software to meet our needs, and this has already been uploaded to our cranes. You wouldn’t get the competition working that fast!”

Thanks to overwhelmingly positive feedback from operators, Parkers had enough confidence in FSC to add a further eight Fassi cranes to their fleet over the last 12 months, and have placed an order for a further six for 2013.
