Founded in 1997, Lee Marley Brickwork has organically grown to become one of the UK’s leading brickwork, scaffolding and integrated façade subcontractors.

Background:

Lee Marley Brickwork specialises in large scale high-quality projects. Their extensive base of highly skilled staff and suppliers bring the requirements of their clients into life. They achieve this via a wide range of services across residential, commercial, MoD, MoJ, rail, education and other public sector work. Lee Marley knows that their clients benefit best when they are involved in the planning and design stages of a project. This way, they can advise and influence ways to make the building easier to construct whilst overseeing costs and detail. It also lets them develop progressive relationships and ensure effective solutions. More often than not, this occurs through the convergence of their management and savvy craftsmanship skills.

Brief

With an uncompromising attitude to quality, Lee Marley fuses traditionalism with modernity. Their craftsmanship utilises the enduring aesthetics of masonry in evermore detailed designs. All so they can produce fabulous facades capable of withstanding the test of time. Yet, at its heart, Lee Marley is a people-centric business – and its staff were juggling more than they needed to. Understanding the continual development of their staff was the only way to meet the challenges of the future, they needed a solution. Priding themselves on collaboration, they asked us for help with their material handling equipment.

Solution

At Locators, we provide fully integrated materials handling and storage systems for your business. Whenever Lee Marely works on-site, they bring high levels of management to ensure their programmes are met accordingly. This way, neither safety nor quality is left uncompromised on even the bigger or most complex projects. Yet, upon assessing their warehouse, we noted that their expansion of work prompted the necessity for another truck. Lee Marely already had two 3.5 tonne gas trucks but needed an additional smaller truck to carry out everyday jobs in the warehouse. That way, the two trucks they currently had could be retained for unloading lorries and moving heavy brickwork. We suggested a brand new Toyota Tonero, specifically the 02-8FGF20. This versatile gas-powered truck is capable of intensive operations – both inside and out. Safe manoeuvrability and fast acceleration make the Tonero range ideal for productivity. Happy with the solution, Lee Marely agreed to purchase the truck, and we delivered it to their door in our covered transport.

“A strong foundation is crucial when building. Yet, to facilitate growth, scaffolding is just as vital. With Locators assistance, the team at Lee Marley Brickwork can now rely on our new forklift to help with that necessary support. With it, we can build our business just that bit higher – and we’re certain it’ll help us build higher still in the future.”

Additional Assistance

Lee Marley were so thrilled with their new Toyota truck that they decided to take our partnership one step further. During our site inspection, we noted they had two ageing Manitou trucks in their yard. Whilst our new addition was retained exclusively for the warehouse, these Manitou trucks were left to shift bigger loads in the yard. However, whilst Manitou creates some truly effective machines, this pair had seen better days. In need of equipment that fared well in construction, we suggested building upon the newest member of their fleet.

Supplementary Solution

Engine-powered Toyota trucks are ideal for intensive outdoor material handling applications. Productive and reliable, they feature a torque converter transmission for smoother driving. This offers stability, low truck noise and vibrations, and a wider cabin for driver comfort. Such unobstructed views increase the visibility of the fork tips when working at any height. This makes for safe and confident driving and load handling. These fast and manoeuvrable models are available with industrial diesel or LPG engines.

“Having recently been in touch with Locators, we were so impressed by their assessment that we called upon their services once more. Whilst our new Toyota was a hit amongst staff, we thought it only right to hear their opinion on the two older trucks in our yard. That’s when Locators suggested both trucks be replaced with two newer Toyota trucks. Given the reaction of our staff to the new machine, we agreed and are beginning to run a Toyota-centric operation now.”
