A BED manufacturer has been banned from delivering its products for failing to comply with transport laws.
Harmony Beds in Batley will be banned from collecting and delivering products from August 3.
The company’s licence was revoked by the Traffic Commissioner after the firm failed to maintain a vehicle and keep records of journeys.
Companies that operate vehicles above 3.5 tonnes for profit require a licence.
By law they must equip their drivers with tachographs.
These monitor their vehicles’ activities and ensure that speed limits are observed and drivers are adequately rested.
But Harmony failed to account for 30,820 miles of business.
An inspection of one of Harmony’s fleet found it had been operating with loose wheel nuts.
Revoking the company’s licence Traffic Commissioner Kevin Rooney said: “It is clear from the evidence of the two examiners that this operator made no serious attempt to comply with the undertakings given when the licence was granted, despite giving assurances in response to an unsatisfactory maintenance investigation in 2008.
“Those assurances have not been delivered. I therefore conclude that this operator no longer has fitness to hold a licence”.
