Multihog customers have played a massive role in achieving this award, continuing to work alongside the company to grow and improve products and services in innovative ways. Multihog was recognised for its work with local council Blackburn with Darwen, saving the council 25% per m2 in repairs. Initially, Multihog worked alongside the Highways team to ensure smooth implementation and an easy ride, now the machine is operated daily by Multihog trained operators. Multihog provide bespoke LANTRA accredited training to all operatives to maximise the potentials of the machine. Local authorities make up a strong portion of Multihog's customer base and focus is on helping them achieve significant savings, including reducing costs for Amey M8.
"The emphasis has always been, listen to our customers and build on their suggestions to make something that works for them. That is why the machine you see today is as versatile as it is. To be recognised in an award for this type of innovation is a nice endorsement to everyone involved." – Josh Sweeney, Strategic Marketing Manager.
