AABC Bagging Ltd, part of Stevenage-based AABC Group, has taken delivery of four 44-tonne Range T460.26 low cab tractor units as the latest additions to its 20-strong fleet.
The new Range Ts, supplied by Renault Trucks Chiltern, are being used to deliver bagged and bulk aggregates from AABC’s new depot and quarry in Sipson, near Heathrow, to major UK builders’ merchants across Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Hertfordshire, North and West London. The Range Ts, fitted with Freuhauf tipper bodies, will carry an impressive 30 tonnes, 1.5 tonnes more than competitor marques on the fleet.
Following the successful introduction of the new Range Ts, a further two Range T460s are also on order. AABC Partner, Rick Faulkner, says that favourable experiences with Renault trucks and excellent customer service at Renault Trucks Chiltern (Dunstable) were key factors in selecting the new vehicles. He says: “I’m a mechanic by trade so I know that the Range T is a great vehicle, and the 13 other Renault trucks in our fleet have given us impressive performance. I know all the guys at Dunstable really well and they are a very skilled bunch. They are always ready to help and give a level of service that is second-to-none.”
Tough, reliable trucks that drive productivity are an essential for AABC, which is constantly expanding and growing its business. As Rick explains: “Our site near Heathrow is pulling out over a million tonnes of materials, so we need trucks that are robust and up to the job. We also like the fact that the lighter Range T gives us a very impressive payload. All in all, I am really happy with both the trucks and service provided by the Renault Trucks’ team.”
Matthew Deanus, Renault Trucks Chiltern, comments on the deal: “I am delighted to hear that Rick is so pleased with the Range T and that it is contributing in such a positive way to their business. We understand that our customers need reliable vehicles that won’t let them down and I look forward to working with AABC on any requirements they may have in the future.”
