Truckman has secured a significant project from national vehicle hire specialists Enterprise to supply almost 200 hardtops for its fleet of pick-up trucks.
The Dudley-based manufacturer and distributor of hardtops and 4×4 accessories will manufacture and fit its Truckman RS hardtops for a fleet of Toyota Hilux Double Cab Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab pick-ups.
This latest project follows on from an agreement with Enterprise to supply over 55 Truckman RS hardtops for a fleet of Ford Ranger pick-ups, which was completed earlier this year.
The hardtop-fitted Hilux and L200s will be part of Enterprise’s Flex-E-Rent service, which operates the widest range of commercial vehicles for rent in the UK. Offering more than 25,000 vehicles of all categories and classes, Flex-E-Rent caters for the diverse needs of commercial customers utilising vehicles in a variety of sectors.
The Truckman RS is one of the most robust cab high hardtops available and is ideal for use in off-highway industries such as construction, agriculture and utilities. Designed and manufactured in the West Midlands by Truckman, the RS is solid-sided and features a practical, wipe-clean interior.
With its non-drilling clamp fitting and toughened, tinted rear glass door, the Truckman RS keeps the truck bed concealed and secure.
Mike Wheeler, Executive Chairman of Truckman, said: “We’re proud to continue our relationship with Enterprise with this latest significant order of our British-Built hardtops. The investments we have made in our manufacturing operations together with additional fitting and stockholding capabilities ensure we can deliver volume contracts like this in a timely manner.
Jamie Atkinson, Group Vehicle Acquisition Manager at Enterprise Flex-E-Rent, said: “We’re very pleased to be able to use a British manufacturer for the continued supply of our hardtops. Truckman has an excellent reputation, which it lives up to with the quality of its products and service.
“The hardtops offered an added dimension to our fleet of pick-up trucks enhancing their storage capabilities and security. This is an important part of the Flex-E-Rent service, which provides tailored, bespoke vehicle solutions to our nationwide customers.”
