The site of the former RAF Misson, Nottinghamshire, is located 7Ż miles south east of Doncaster, South Yorkshire,
and approximately 1-mile (1.6 km) south east of the former RAF Finningley airbase now Doncaster Robin Hood International Airport.
RAF Misson is a former 850-acre (3.4 km2) bombing range used by aircraft predominantly based at 25 and 18 OTU
at nearby RAF Finningley during the Second World War.
The base later became a Bristol Bloodhound surface-to-air missile battery location as part of No. 94 Squadron RAF and was installed
to protect the V Bomber location at Finningley.
For many years the location became known locally as the RAF Dump where the RAF dismantled old aircraft, vehicles and weaponry.
This is a 60 acre, former military site, giving us an operating area including warehousing units,
hard standing areas and full workshop and paintshop facilities.
We are major suppliers worldwide to the construction and mining industries, utility companies, public and private sector companies.
We offer the same specialised service to Government departments and International Aid Agencies, as those offered to the private landowner buyer.
Our facilities include on-site workshops, sandblasting and paint shops and over 150,000Sq Ft of modern undercover storeage.
Our export market covers all the aspects of the world and our shipping department are widely experienced in the handling of freight,
documentation and customs formalities. We have storage and sales facilities in the U.K. Holland, Sweden and Kuwait.
We permanently hold in stock over 3,000 vehicles including plant and machinery. This allows the customer the freedom of choice and the
scope to have "custom made" modifications. Our team of experienced mechanics prepare vehicles and equipment to a high standard,
inspecting and replacing parts where necessary prior to the vehicles transferring to the paintshops where they are repainted to the customers requirements.

Special modifications as requested by the customer can also be catered for, for example, tipping bodies, box bodies, service and lube trucks,
DROP bodies, crane trucks, tanker trucks etc.
Our on-site facilities allow us to offer short lead times, even on the largest of orders. A complete after sales service can be offered,
from the supply of service items for the vehicles thought to a full spares back up.
To assist our customers, we offer an independent inspection service by an SGS Qualified Inspector, who can supply reports and technical
details before and/or after the vehicles have gone through our refurbishment programme.
