1:50 scale Volvo FH Globetrotter (4x2) tractor unit and 3 axle, box van trailer, customised in the striking livery of Scottish operator MacRitchie Highland Distribution.
This is the second model to be commissioned through Search Impex by this well known Scottish haulier and it follows on from the earlier sell out release of the DAF XF105 & fridge trailer. The model has again been produced exclusively for Search Impex by WSI Collectibles as a certificated Limited Edition (175 pieces).
Established in 2002 by Donald & Catriona MacRitchie (the founders and now former owners of Skye Express), MacRitchie Highland Distribution is an independent, family owned and run business and was set up to serve the distribution needs of the manufacturing sector in the Inverness area. With depots, including secure warehousing and storage facilities, in both Inverness and Glasgow, the Company offers nationwide distribution services and also operates regular distribution services from the Central Belt to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, including next day deliveries to all main line destinations.
In 2006, an international flavour was added to the operation with the commencement of European work and the Company now undertakes regular continental runs - with Belgium and France being principal destinations.
The Company benefits from a dedicated and hard working team of employees which has brought well deserved success for the business and today MacRitchie Highland Distribution runs a fleet of 16 trucks with a mix of curtain, ambient and fridge trailers. The distinctive livery will be a familiar sight to many collectors and is sure to prove an attractive addition to a model truck collection.
Models, available from Search Impex, are priced at £142 each (including UK delivery & VAT). For details of availability of this and other models, collectors can visit the Search Impex website at www.search-impex.co.uk or call them on 01332 873555.
