Huddersfield PMW Quarries Invests In MAN

Huddersfield based PMW Quarries took delivery of the four Euro 6 TGS 400 tractor units this month in a deal struck by their long time MAN sales specialist Adrian Hird.

PMW Quarries’ Director, Danny Watson, said: “We have been purchasing MAN trucks since we launched over 35 years ago and they’ve been top class every time. Over the past couple of years we’ve experienced a huge surge in demand for our products and services and have in turn required fuel efficient vehicles to help us meet those demands. The core elements on the Euro 6 trucks are the torquey six cylinder engines. The key technologies exhaust gas, selective reduction and diesel particulate filter used in MAN’s Euro 6 engines set the standard in terms of low fuel consumption. They also have a very low Ad Blue consumption which makes them the best trucks on the market for the environment. There was no question of which trucks we were going to go for.”

Danny added: “The development of foundations for all buildings including housing, schools, hospitals and airports rely heavily on good aggregates. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do and what sets us apart from our competitors is our reliability. In order to maintain our reliable image it is vital to operate a fleet of trucks that won’t let us or our customers down. After testing out the majority of truck manufacturers on the market, we found that in terms of what we need them for, the MAN trucks were the most versatile. Our jobs include many motorway miles as well as site work and off road work on local tips that sometimes struggle with heavy traffic and adverse weather conditions.”

PMW Quarries has also taken advantage of the manufacturer’s repair and maintenance package.

“MAN’s aftersales service is excellent. We have all our trucks on full gold repair and maintenance packages, with Pelican Engineering carrying out all the servicing, maintenance and M.O.T.’s whilst creating very little down time.”

MAN sales executive Adrian Hird added: “PMW Quarries is a real ambassador for the MAN brand. We have a great relationship with them, which is only getting stronger by the year.”
