Compared to bringing down a multi storey tower block, a domestic demolition job may appear to be a realistic challenge for a motivated individual. In truth though, even ‘small’ demolition jobs require a suitable level of specialist knowledge, skills and planning to avoid the risk of injuries, or worse, as demonstrated in the video below
Jack Weir had been commissioned to bring down a garage but ended up in hospital with one of his legs hanging from his body by only a strand of skin. The video clearly shows that none of the basic Health and Safety rules were followed as Mr Weir did not even wear a hard hat!
Luckily, after a six-hour reconstruction operation by Professor Chris Moran at the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, Mr Weir has since made a good recovery and can even run five miles in one gym session.
Loyal to its commitment of reducing its environmental impact, Maylarch has recently replaced several of its vehicles. In the last two months, six new vehicles have joined the Maylarch fleet replacing older, less efficient models. This includes, four Toyota Prius which are renowned for their low CO2 emissions.

In addition to this, two brand new MINI Clubvan with a low fuel consumption of 73 MPG!
Nick Williamson, Managing Director of Maylarch Environmental Ltd, justifies the acquisition of the MINIs for two other reasons. “Choosing the MINI is symbolic for us as we are an Oxfordshire based business. In these difficult times, every action that can support the local economy should be encouraged and we are trying to play our part. The other reason is the fact that the car looks great. It is very modern and yet reminds us of the old Mini vans that were very popular in the 60’s and 70’s.”
With a good start of the year 2013, we hope these new vehicles will help increase the visibility of Maylarch in Oxfordshire, the surrounding counties and beyond.
Maylarch fleet has seen this week the arrival of two new vehicles. Wrapped in their red Maylarch livery, the brand new BMW MINI Clubvan have made their way to our Head Office for the satisfaction of the staff present who quickly went to have a closer look at it.
Choosing the MINI was deliberate as, not only does it look great with the Maylarch branding but it also supports the local economy, the MINI being built only a few miles down the road in the Cowley Plant.
So we have not gone as far as to put the English flag on top of it, but a red and white car, made in Oxford, is a rather good way to celebrate St Georges day don’t you think ?
