Camden Group, one of the UK and Ireland’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of PVCu products, have taken delivery of a number of Volvo FH 4×2 trucks
“Volvo is the perfect fit for us,” says Stephen Clements, Camden’s Transport Manager. “It’s an innovative company, constantly looking to keep ahead of the competition. The fact that the trucks also look fantastic is an added bonus!”
The new trucks are liveried in Camden’s striking green and black colour scheme, which was been specifically designed to reflect the Company’s total commitment to sustainability.
“We had the FH’s on trial, and during that time the performance of both the trucks and Dennisons was outstanding,” adds Stephen. “From a reliability perspective, the trucks were excellent – we didn’t lose a single day’s productivity from reliability issues. But the big bonus for us is the fuel efficiency coupled with a huge reduction in our CO2 emissions”
Last year Camden delivered over 750,000 window and door units to trade customers the length and breadth of Britain, from Inverness to Penzance. “This year, that figure will be over one million units, continued Stephen. “With a five day turnaround promise, fleet reliability is huge to us, and our customers put their confidence in us to deliver on time, every time.”
As well as the distinctive livery, the Euro VI FH 460 4×2 XL Globetrotters are finished to an impressive specification, with lightbars fitted and the last five to be delivered also including alloy wheels. All of the trucks have air flow kits fitted for enhanced aerodynamic capability.
