FIRST RENAULT TRUCKS RANGE C CONCRETE MIXER SETS STANDARD FOR HOPE CONSTRUCTION
“The Landers are ideal for the work we do, with no breakdowns, and the warranty and back-up has been brilliant. As business is booming, we needed to increase our capacity and the Range C was the natural choice.”
Cardiff-based P&T Woodruff Haulage Ltd, contract haulier for Hope Construction Materials, has taken delivery of the UK’s first Renault Trucks Range C430 X Load 8x4 with a McPhee Mixers (Glasgow) 8 cubic metre concrete mixer. Supplied by Renault Trucks Cardiff on a five year contract, the Range C, with high roof sleeper cab and lightweight pack including aluminium wheels, fuel tank and air tanks, is an addition to P&T Woodruff Haulage’s fleet, reflecting strong trading conditions in the construction industry.
The Range C, in Hope Construction Material’s distinctive white and purple livery, went on the road in April, operating across the South from Wales to Kent, servicing Hope Construction Materials’ network of ready-mixed concrete plants. This is the third Renault truck on P&T Woodruff Haulage’s fleet and follows the very positive experience of owning and operating two Renault Premium Landers.
Commenting on the decision to purchase the company’s first Euro 6 truck, Joint Managing Director of P&T Woodruff Haulage, Tim Woodruff says: “The customer service we’ve received from Renault Trucks Cardiff with the two Landers has been superb. The Landers are ideal for the work we do, with no breakdowns, and the warranty and back-up has been brilliant. As business is booming, we needed to increase our capacity and the Range C was the natural choice. Normally we have a standard sleeper cab but because we are travelling further afield and need more flexibility we have specified a high roof sleeper cab with in-cab comfort extras.”
P&T Woodruff Haulage’s Range C mixer created a buzz on social media channels before it even went on the road, and its first appointment was on display at the Hope Construction Materials Customer Showcase Event at its Cardiff cement plant, 3 April 2014.
Peter Harris, Renault Trucks Cardiff, says: “It’s great to see P&T Woodruff Haulage take delivery of the UK’s first Renault Trucks Range C concrete mixer and to see the vehicle on the road in the prestigious livery of Hope Construction Materials. P&T Woodruff Haulage has been a good customer to Renault Trucks Cardiff for nearly three years and I knew Tim would be tempted to try our new Euro 6 truck from the minute it was launched.”
Brian Lomas, Hope Construction Materials’ Regional Transport Manager says: “We are delighted that P&T Woodruff Haulage has added this exemplary vehicle to its fleet to deliver Hope Construction Materials concrete to customers. The combination of first class environmental credentials through the Euro 6 specification and the maximum efficiency of the 8m3 delivery load makes this truck a great match for our business and its values.”
