The Cadzow Heavy Haulage roots actually go back to 1957 when James Macauley (Snr) purchased a 2 tonne Morris truck and set out with a vision of building a family business in public works, including earthmoving, demolition and the supply of construction materials. Following the death of James in the early 1970s, his son (Jim Jnr) had the daunting task of taking over the reins. He opted to move away from the civil engineering and public works sector and made a decision to move purely into heavy haulage - so beginning, in 1973, what is now seen as today’s Cadzow Heavy Haulage. Under Jim Macauley’s guidance, the Company which, incidentally, takes its name from “Cadzow” – a region of South Lanarkshire in Scotland, has gone on to become one of the UK’s best known and most experienced operators in the transportation of heavy and abnormal loads. Sadly, in 2016, Jim Macauley passed away but, with the on-going involvement of his wife and daughters in the business, it still remains very much family owned and run.
Offering haulier services throughout the UK and Europe to a range of different industries, Cadzow Heavy Haulage can handle loads of up to 600 tonnes. Large items of machinery and plant for commercial businesses are moved using the haulier’s fleet of modern tractor units and a variety of modern trailers, including modular & low loaders. Reinvestment has always been a philosophy of the Macauley family, a policy resulting in a very modern, well maintained and well presented fleet of units and trailers – and a policy which is amply evidenced by the arrival of the big new MAN. Capable of being plated up to STGO Cat 3, this is the very latest unit to be acquired by Cadzow and it joins a fleet which also includes Volvo, Mercedes & Scania units.
