The UK’s largest family-owned waste firm, Grundon Waste Management, has purchased two brand-new 26t Mercedes Econic 2630’s refuse collection vehicles to boost the fleet at its new Bristol depot, as part of an ongoing efficiency drive.
The vehicles been fitted with Dennis Olympus OL21W bodies and Beta trade bin lifts and were supplied by Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd (RVS) via its RediTruck service. RediTruck provides brand new refuse vehicles, built to each customer’s specification, in short-time scales.
“We needed to replace some hired vehicles quickly to make cost efficiencies at our new Bristol depot. RVS were able to supply the correct vehicles, to Grundon specifications and meet our tight timescales, at a competitive price,” explained John Stephens, General Manager for Logistics at Grundon Waste Management.
Both vehicles were delivered in under four months, branded in Grundon livery and built to match the company’s standard specifications. The trucks are fitted with six-way recording camera systems and VWS Enviroweigh Trade Approved bin weighing.
“We’ve worked with RVS for many years, not just for the purchase of vehicles, but also using their expertise in vehicle remanufacturing and servicing. It’s a mutually beneficial relationship for both parties,” continued John Stephens.
Spencer Law, Managing Director, RVS added: “We’re pleased that our RediTruck service has assisted Grundon to replace vehicles quickly and with the minimum amount of hassle. It’s for exactly this reason that we set it up. We aim to provide a comprehensive range of support services to Grundon, and all our customers, so they can call on us as and when they need us.”
RVS offers the entire range of refuse vehicle services, including new or quality used vehicles for sale, vehicle remanufacturing, a substantial hire fleet, a preventative maintenance service, repairs, breakdown, parts, finance and vehicle transportation.
