Platts ‛beds down’ with local MAN dealer

Animal bedding company takes three TGXs on contract hire

Animal bedding producer, RA & CE Platt in Llay, Wrexham, has taken three Euro-6 MAN TGX 26.440 6x2 tractor units on long-term contract hire through local MAN dealer AN Richards. The XXL-cabbed units feature striking ‘field of cows’ cab-wrap livery designed by FotoFire and fitted by Now Group in Oswestry.

Platts had previously acquired three MANs on a rolling spot-hire arrangement through AN Richards. The move to a longer-term contract hire package, however, underlines the company’s growing confidence in AN Richards as an essential part of its transport operations.

“The service and support we receive from AN Richards is second-to-none,” said Caroline Thedens, Managing Director, at Platts, “the team strives to keep us up-and-running. If there’s ever an issue, AN Richards is onto it straight away. We really are very impressed indeed with the service levels.”

She added, “In fact, we have taken the decision to move our whole truck fleet to AN Richards for regular servicing and maintenance – and that includes other makes.”

Platts has over 40 years’ experience of producing high quality animal bedding products to the agricultural industry, delivering to over 5,000 dairy farmers across the whole of the UK and Southern Ireland.
