Welcome to J. Sharples Commercial Vehicles & Plant


It is with deepest sadness and a heavy heart to announce that Shooi / Sandy (Saunderson Macilwane) passed away suddenly on Friday 19th January aged 58.

He was a very close work colleague who had been with for us for over 35 years and over time became part of our family.

He was very highly thought of and respected by all those who knew, dealt with and worked with him over the years.

                                                  You will be greatly missed.

                                                 Rest in peace Sandy / Shooi ❤️
