GROWTH: Ten more Renaults for Damac
Nationwide bulk powder distributors Damac Transporters are continuing their expansion by adding ten more Premium trucks to their 38-strong all-Renault fleet.
The Renault Premium 460.25 6×2 tractor units, with Privilege cabs and Optidriver gearbox, were supplied through Renault Trucks distributor Thompson Commercials Hull.
They have discharge equipment and air compressors, supplied and fitted by WG Tankers Ltd, and will transport and distribute mainly cementitious powder products nationwide, for clients in the construction industry.
Cathy Plaskitt, Managing Director of Damac Transporters, said: “This latest order follows the purchase of 21 new Renault Premiums in 2012 as we continue to expand our fleet.
“The Renaults are competitively priced vehicles which have proven very reliable so far.
“They offer lower emissions and better fuel economy than many comparable units – we have definitely seen a significant improvement in our overall fleet fuel efficiency.
“We have had a 100% Renault fleet since 2004 and have built up a good working relationship with the local dealer, Thompson Commercials.
“A major advantage is that they undertake all of our fleet maintenance at our depot, which minimises disruption and allows us to keep our fleet working as efficiently as possible.”
