Based in Glasgow, Andrew Muirhead & Son manufactures seating leather and is part of the Scottish Leather Group.Muirhead's engineering manager, Alec Bryceland, first contacted Nu-Star in May 2003 as he wanted to reduce the manpower needed to move 2000kg trestles used in the tanning process.

Due to their size, weight and four swivel castor configuration, the trestles required up to four staff to move them and occasional use of a forklift truck.

Nu-Star recommended its PowerTug, and Andrew Muirhead has now purchased four such units. Bryceland says: "We have found the PowerTugs to be very manageable and compact with the added value of the safety features installed as standard.What once required up to four people to move about is now easily done by one person and has saved us both time and space in the operation and improved our safety record."
