After hearing about our demonstration at the Houses of Parliament in June of the CEMEX Econic tipper high visibility safety truck – Kevin contacted us, to arrange a visit to a local CEMEX quarry to see one of our latest spec tipper trucks and have a drive out with Lukasz Liebrandt, one our our company lead drivers.

Martin Casey, Director of Public Affairs and Communications, and Kevin Cage gave the MP an induction and introduction to CEMEX UK, Carl Milton and Ian Phoenix took Kevin though the various safety systems on the vehicle and the driving training and work we do in the community to raise the knowledge of trucks and road safety.
