11 26-tonne vehicles delivered to CEMEX
Motiva are hoping a ground-breaking deal for a fleet of concrete mixers can cement a long-term relationship with one of the biggest companies in the world.
The vehicle solutions experts are delivering 11 of the specialist 26-tonne vehicles to the UK arm of global building materials suppliers CEMEX. The contract, valued at £1.2m, is the first of its kind between the two companies but Peter Wright, Sales Director at Motiva, hopes it won’t be the last.
“CEMEX is a huge business with operations spanning 50 countries around the world, so the fact they’re renewing part of their fleet through us is a massive shot in the arm. They’re obviously keen to get the best deal they can for their fleet, combined with service they can rely on, and that’s what we’re all about.”
The DAF CF 330 FAT Euro 6 machines, fitted with McPhee Mixers, were supplied by Heathrow Truck Centre in Reading. And some of the vehicles, valued at £108,000 each, are already being put to work at various locations around the UK as part of a 469-strong fleet.
Mr Wright says the contract with CEMEX, whose UK headquarters is in Surrey, is a ringing endorsement of Motiva’s growing stature within the fleet industry.
Chris Rose, National Readymix Fleet Manager for CEMEX UK, said: “We operate the trucks on short-term leases with the option to transfer ownership to independent contractors within the CEMEX fleet while extending the lease terms, thus providing a sustainable model for future growth.”
