West Midlands based haulage company, Joseph Holloway Ltd., has invested in 12 new Renault Premium 460.25 6×2 tractor units in the last 12 months, all supplied by Renault Trucks Midlands. Following the success of these vehicles on the road, the company has a further two Renault Premiums on order and is looking to replace its entire 25-strong Scania fleet with Renault.
The Renault Premiums have all pulling tipping bodies for the bulk haulage of recycling materials, scrap metals and waste on behalf of customers across the UK.
Matt Holloway, Managing Director, Joseph Holloway Ltd. says: “When looking to update our fleet last year, we trialled a Renault Premium demonstrator. Our drivers were pleased with the comfort and handling of the Premium and fuel economy was also impressive. The Renault Premiums on our fleet continue to run at about 6mpg – 7.5mpg, which is a good return for a tipper truck”.
He continues: “Half of our fleet of 25 trucks are now Renault and, following the successful performance we have seen over the last year, we are looking to eventually run an all Renault fleet.”
Excellent service levels and dealer support by Renault Trucks Midlands sealed the deal.
Joseph Holloway Ltd. is an independent, fourth generation, family company established in 1897. Based in the West Midlands, the company originally started out with canal boats, moving raw materials, such as iron ore and coal, for local industries. Today the company, which is now run by brothers Matt and Adam Holloway, has grown into a nationwide haulage operation, with a fleet of bulk tippers and walking floor vehicles, transporting a variety of goods.
