Oxford Diecast 1/76 CMG Volvo FH Recovery Truck VOL07REC
Cowan's of Hemel Hempsted was established in 1972 by Mike Cowan to provide a 24 hour breakdown and recovery service for cars and light vans in the public domain and motoring organisations. The company rapidly established a reputation for prompt response times, excellent customer service and expertise in its field. In 1977, a successful tender for the lease on Newport Pagnell service area, led to Mike and one member of staff moving to the new site. Cowan Recvery Ltd (CMG) was formed and the original base at Hemel Hempsted closed. The move meant the company could expand into the Heavy Recovery sector, which also included police contracts. Cowan Recovery Ltd (CMG) changed its trading name to CMG Rescue Services in the late 1990s. Today, CMG Resuce Services has continued to expand, having several depots and a customer base of over 1000 businesses across the public and private sector, in and around Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire. CMG Rescue Services has several low loaders and vehicles able to move unusual loads or disabled vehicles of most sizes. They also move plant and equipment across the UK Our Oxford Model is a replica of the colourful and very detailed Volvo FH Boniface Recovery Truck used by CMG. Registered CG07 CMG, some of the refinements on the vehicle include a roof-mounted lightbar with blue-tinted spotlights, a grille-mounted lightbar with four blue-tinted spotlights and a lightbar on the winch moulded in tinted orange.
