Over the coming years, the Managing Director was actively traveling all over Europe buying up as many tankers as possible where WG Tankers refurbed to the highest of standards and in turn the Hire Fleet was born. The hire department started its life in 1993 and still remains today and the hire fleet is now in excess of 300 vehicles and continues to grow. 2001 saw WG Tanker enter a partnership with GHH Rand working with UK sales and services, amalgamating our values, ingenuity, expertise, and industry knowledge in the bulk transport sector. Our partnership has been in place for many years and will remain for many to come as we strive together to deliver world-class products and services for our customers in the bulk transport market. 2005 WG Tankers looked to expand their operations further and purchased a 5.5 acre site just off the A50 at Foston in Derbyshire where the hire department was relocated to allow further expansion of its operations and the purchase of Crowtrees industrial Estate in Waterhouses. This was the new foundation for our expanding parts department which now holds over 7000 parts to support all FFB,GHH and ZVVZ Stocks and more. 2006 saw the development of the first four fully comprehensive drive-through workshop bays and two spray booths. This was also the year “Specialist Coatings” was developed opening up more opportunities providing paint shop services and solutions to the commercial, rail and specialist sectors. WG Specialist Coatings growth ensured that WG Tanker Group has the capability to process all of their customer requirements as a one-stop shop.
2009 WG Tanker sort to grow even further, the development of the main rail facilities were built within our Foston location and worked within in partnership with our customers at sites all around the UK to meet any of our customers specifications, requirements and warranties throughout. 2015 WG Tankers became the ZVVZ UK partner for sales, service, warranty and specialist repairs throughout the UK & Ireland. From this WG Tankers has been working to offer innovative solutions in the dry bulk industry through repairs & maintenance contracts and bespoke builds to suit customer requirements. 2020 was the birth of WG Tankers research & development and bespoke building department, taking the expertise gained throughout the years and putting it all together to provide leading innovation.
