MP Moran and Sons achieve FORS Gold membership

One of London’s leading building and plumbing merchants, MP Moran and Sons Ltd, is celebrating its membership to the FORS Gold Standard, as one of the only building and plumbing merchants in the capital to hold the prestigious accolade.

The Fleet operator accreditation scheme marks MP Moran and Sons as a leader in fleet transport best practice, boasting exemplary levels of safety, efficiency and environmental awareness throughout all supply chain operations.

MP Moran and Sons continues to invest in all aspects of its transportation activities, having recently purchased a further 17 Renault Trucks into its fleet, from 3.5T to 44T. The wide range of vehicles completes a diverse range of building projects, from home deliveries to large scale construction projects.

All of the new trucks have been specified with the latest safety technology, including Lane Departure Warning System as standard, which gives drivers an audible warning if there is an inadvertent change in direction. The trucks are also compliant with London FORS specification, including vision doors, cameras and audible sensors and have been fitted with independent handrails for when the driver is working on the rear of the vehicle, reducing the possibility of a fall.

Martin Moran, purchasing director for MP Moran and Sons, said: “Safety is a leading priority throughout all aspects of our business, specifically with regard to transportation. However, this must also be combined with efficiency and sustainability, including ensuring all vehicles are compliant with Euro 6.

“With over 300 employees working at seven sites throughout London, Herefordshire and Ireland, it’s a fantastic achievement for MP Moran and Sons to become FORS Gold accredited, reflecting our continued commitment to improving our operations.”

MP Moran and Sons has been operating for over 43 years as a family business, with branches in Kilburn, Watford, West Hampstead, Willesden, Kennington, Co Kerry and Co Mayo in the Republic of Ireland. For further information call 0843 600 5566 or visit https://www.mpmoran.co.uk.
