Summer Fun In Calne Playscheme!

For the second year running, BIL Group are pleased to donate to the Summer Fun In Calne Playscheme!

The Playscheme is a charity running through the summer holidays to give the children in Calne a safe environment to have fun with their friends!

The Charity scheme is run by a voluntary committee. Funding is received from local organisations, charities and businesses, as well as local fund raising activities.

They can only run with voluntary help and are always looking for new committee members and general public help. For example moving boxes from one venue to another, bag packing and fund raising.

Without additional support the future of the scheme is less certain. It brings a great deal of fun to a lot of children every holiday and it would be very sad if it was to stop.

We believe these sorts of events are vital in the local community and like to shout about them and support them whenever we can!

We think what they do is fantastic and we are very pleased to help! Keep up the good work!


We have recently taken delivery of our brand new additional Pro 3D printer courtesy of Robox CEL.

Over the past year we have been designing and printing our own prototypes and samples for both our Material Handling and Castor and wheel divisions!

Investing in this excellent piece of technology means we are now able to produce samples in a higher volume and to a larger scale!

It also means we are able to ensure dimensions of the prototypes are suitable and compatible with the application before we push forward to full production!

CV Show 2018 – We are exhibiting!

After a very successful outing in 2017 we made the easy decision to exhibit our AluTruk range again at the 2018 Commercial Vehicle Show based at the NEC in Birmingham.

2017 was our first time exhibiting at the show and it was refreshing to see so many people taking an interest in higher quality equipment such as our AluTruk range.

We will be there from the 24th April – 26th April and manning the stand this year will be our Sales Manager Tim Murrow, Business Development Manager Nathan Jones and our new sales team member Steven McKay!

Come and visit us at stand 4H62, We look forward to seeing everyone there!


Monster Race 2017!

On Saturday 30th September The BIL Group and associates took part in the 5k South West Monster Race 2017!

Consisting of running, mud, obstacles, water and more mud!! A fantastic day and great fun was had by all. Everyone completed the course successfully and more importantly safely!!

This was a fantastic opportunity to show our determination and teamwork and a huge congratulations to everyone involved!

We are now looking into 2018 and hope to have an even bigger team to take on the challenge!


Tough Mudder South West 2017!

On Sunday 20th August 2017, The BIL Group’s CAD Technician Matt Walker and our Business Development Manager Nathan Jones took on a new challenge. Both keen to test themselves wherever possible they took on the monster task of Tough Mudder South West! A gruelling 10 miles of running, water, obstacles and mud!

They both finished the course completing all obstacles in their path and are hoping to get a larger team together for next year’s event!

Nathan’s comments from the day “I ran in the London Marathon in 2016 which was very tough but more of an individual event. Tough Mudder was a whole new ball game! It was great to see so much comradery between everyone and I am already looking forward to taking part again next year!”

Matt’s comment from the day “A great experience that I would recommend to anyone! If I can do it anyone can!”

Nathan was raising money for Diabetes UK as his wife suffers from the condition. If you would like to donate please follow the link below.

A big congratulations to the lads for a great achievement!


A New Toy for the Team at Salvage Hunters!

Being a fan of the show BIL Products Director Tim Walker noticed that Drew Pritchard and the team at Salvage Hunters could do with an upgrade on their sack truck! Our BDM Nathan Jones got in touch with the Salvage Hunters team and a brand new AluTruk was delivered to their warehouse, Looks like they are making good use of it already!



The John Bentley School Expedition to Norway

The BIL Group were recently approached by Simon Parry from our local school The John Bentley School in Calne; seeking support for students at the school to take part in a once in a lift time trek through one of the remote areas of Norway.

The students will be departing on the expedition in August 2018 and at the moment are trying to fundraise the money themselves so they do not need to rely on their parents. On top of this they will have to raise additional money for getting to the airport by coach and buying their own expedition equipment.

While on expedition the students will be carrying all of their own equipment and food. They will be wild camping next to remote lakes on the top of some of the highest peaks in the area and running the expedition themselves. The students will be leading the expedition themselves with the support of the staff attending. They are responsible for completing all elements of the expedition from sorting out where to catch the boats, planes and ferries from to navigating through the wilderness. This expedition offer an incredible opportunity for the students as it allows them to develop so many skills and gives many the confidence boost that they really need. BIL are glad to support them with this adventure and have donated £500 towards the expedition.
They are still looking for further funding! If you are able to help please contact Simon Parry

Dorothy House

On Friday 12th May, our BDM Nathan Jones noticed a social media post by the local Dorothy House in Melksham who were asking the public to try and trace a sack truck they had loaned out but never received back.

As a company BIL Group felt we needed to correct the situation so we contacted the store about providing a free of charge replacement. We received some great feedback from the general public but in out minds it was a small thank you for all the hard work they do and we hope their new AluTruk serves them well!
