Booming business and brand loyalty boosts MAN

Civil engineering giant turns to MAN Truck & Bus UK to meet demand for fleet expansion.

M J Church, a leading civil engineering, earthworks and waste management contractor based in Chippenham, has taken delivery of six TGS 8x4 rigid tippers and one hook loader to help meet growing customer demand.

The vehicles were purchased from the MAN Trucks To Go programme, which cuts lead times on new trucks.

Director Tom Church said: “We have a very longstanding relationship with MAN, but the availability of these trucks was a major factor in our ordering. They were in production and were ready to go as soon as we needed them and we didn’t have a long lead time.”

“We were looking to replace some of our fleet, but this order became an expansion due to the sheer volume of work we have on.”

MAN sales executive Mike Bull added: “MJ Church is a real ambassador for the MAN brand. They are loyal and buy into our products time and time again, which is greatly appreciated.”

Tom added: “Our former transport manager Dave Bell, who sadly passed away from cancer last November, was always keen on MAN and as a result we have come to know the brand well.

“We have tested a range of Euro 6s and it had to be MAN again for us. In terms of fuel efficiency and Ad Blue usage we were totally impressed.

“Our drivers have an influence on our choices too and they are all happy with MAN, saying they are sturdy and reliable.

“We have a number of major civil engineering projects on at the moment, including work at RAF Lyneham and a big contract working on the M3 so these vehicles will all be rolled out and put to immediate use.”
