Concrete order boost for MAN in Northern Ireland

Vehicles praised for tackling tough terrain

Leading truck manufacturer MAN Truck & Bus UK has supplied three new MAN TGS 35.440 8x4s fitted with Liebherr mixers to join the ready-mix fleet at Tracey Concrete.

Tracey Concrete, one of the UK and Ireland’s largest precast concrete manufacturers, based in Enniskillen, has turned to MAN to supply the new vehicles as they were looking for a sturdy and reliable product and MAN ticked both those boxes.

Anton Tracey,said: “We have a fleet of approximately 30 lorries and half of our more recent additions are MAN.

“We opted for the MAN TGS and the 8x4 spec because we were looking for a vehicle with a strong chassis. They will be delivering Readymix and Flow Screed in to local sites with rough hilly terrain and the 440 engine is ideal for this.

“The trucks have been purchased due to a company expansion and also to replace old fleet.”

Brian Beattie, MAN area sales manager, added: “Tracey Concrete is a prestigious firm and we are delighted that they have recognised MAN for delivering vehicles that can meet their exacting requirements.

“The trucks will certainly be put to the test, but we are confident that they will stand up to the tough challenges and deliver on efficiency and quality.”
