Cardiff-based P&T Woodruff Haulage Ltd, contract haulier for Hope Construction Materials, has taken delivery of the UK’s first Renault Trucks Range C430 X Load 8×4 with a McPhee Mixers (Glasgow) 8 cubic metre concrete mixer. Supplied by Renault Trucks Cardiff on a five year contract, the Range C, with high roof sleeper cab and lightweight pack including aluminium wheels, fuel tank and air tanks, is an addition to P&T Woodruff Haulage’s fleet, reflecting strong trading conditions in the construction industry. The Range C, in Hope Construction Material’s distinctive white and purple livery, went on the road in April, operating across the South from Wales to Kent, servicing Hope Construction Materials’ network of ready-mixed concrete plants. This is the third Renault truck on P&T Woodruff Haulage’s fleet and follows the very positive experience of owning and operating two Renault Premium Landers.
Commenting on the decision to purchase the company’s first Euro 6 truck, Joint Managing Director of P&T Woodruff Haulage, Tim Woodruff says: “The customer service we’ve received from Renault Trucks Cardiff with the two Landers has been superb. The Landers are ideal for the work we do, with no breakdowns, and the warranty and back-up has been brilliant. As business is booming, we needed to increase our capacity and the Range C was the natural choice. Normally we have a standard sleeper cab but because we are travelling further afield and need more flexibility we have specified a high roof sleeper cab with in-cab comfort extras.”
