The aim of Hubtex is to gain access to a wider long load market with an extended product range and to exploit the possibilities worldwide.
BP's main product range consists of 2 way electric, diesel and LPG sideloaders with capacities up to 35 tonnes, though their main concentration has been in the 3-7 tonne market.
BP produced the world's first sideloader for the handling of timber in 1959.
Hubtex says: "The alliance between the two companies brings a great benefit of technology sharing, particularly in their electric products as both companies are market leaders with their own products in this area of the industry. A truck from the new range is destined for the IMHX Show in November." Stand 18M125
