PLEASE NOTE : RESERVATION LIST FOR D. STEVEN & SON IS FULLY SUBSCRIBED. WAITING LIST NOW IN OPERATION.
Customised promotional model vehicle specialists, Search Impex, are delighted to announce the forthcoming release of a 1:50 scale Scania S580 (6x2), tag axle tractor unit with 3 axle, refrigerated trailer, customised in the stunning livery of Scottish haulier D. Steven & Son.
The truck name and fleet number of the Scania unit on which the model is to be based is yet to be finalised. More info on these details will be posted on our website shortly.
The models will be produced exclusively for Search Impex by WSI Collectibles as a certificated Limited Edition and will, in due course, join the steadily growing collection of D Steven & Son 1:50 scale models.
A total of six new Scania S trucks have just gone on the road, as well as a new Scania R which will be used for local work and a further five new Scania S units will be joining the fleet later this summer. As would be expected, the recent additions are (and the imminent additions will be) turned out in keeping with this operator’s tradition of applying classy and traditional graphics to a fleet which will require little, if any, introduction to collectors . Indeed, the D Steven & Son name continues to attract a keen collectors’ following extending well into mainland Europe and beyond.
In business now for more than 95 years, the Company was established in Wick, Caithness, in 1920 by David Steven (grandfather of the present Managing Director) and the first vehicle in the “fleet” was a horse and cart. Whilst ensuring such humble origins are never forgotten, (to this day, two horse head graphics proudly feature on the front of every truck in the fleet), the Company has gone from strength to strength over the years.
Nowadays, D Steven & Son is a well known and respected player in the haulage market and the Company works with a variety of clients across a broad spectrum of industry. With a large fleet of trucks, comprising a mix of Scania and Volvo and a variety of trailers, the Company is, perhaps, best known for the refrigerated transport side of its business – and particularly for the carrying of fish.
