MAN delivers for bottle maker

New truck order puts MAN in majority for fleet in UK and Ireland

Leading manufacturer MAN Truck & Bus UK has delivered 12 new TGX tractor units to Encirc.

The order comes on the back of Encirc committing to seven new Euro 6 TGX models in 2015. Both orders have been placed through RK Trucks in Belfast.

John McNally, Encirc logistics manager Ireland and England, said: “We are pleased with the service and cost of ownership we have experienced with the first five MAN TGXs we put on the road in 2015.

“The new trucks are going to be put in service at both the Derrylin, Co Fermanagh and our Elton, Cheshire, plants. Geographically MAN is perfectly located to carry out all our servicing and day-to-day requirements.

“We have been very impressed with the whole package and the ease of dealing with MAN as a supplier.”

Brian Beattie, MAN area sales manager, added: “MAN has offered a cost effective solution to Encirc’s fleet requirements.

“It is pleasing to hear such an enthusiastic customer testimonial which is based on the efficiency of the trucks, driver satisfaction and successful service levels.

“We look forward to enjoying further successful business opportunities with Encirc in the future.”

Glyn Moores of Pullman Fleet Services, added: “We are pleased that Encirc returned to Pullman Fleet Services when building its MAN fleet.”

Encirc is now operating a fleet of 33 vehicles, 19 of which are MAN.

The new vehicles to the fleet will be involved in drawing raw materials for the manufacture of glass and also delivering the finished product to customers.
