MAN Truck & Bus UK breaks new ground with Weir Waste.

Midlands firm buys three new MAN TGS hookloaders after MAN TopUsed vehicle impresses.

Three new MAN TGS hookloaders are on the road servicing the needs of the Midlands’ leading independent recycling and waste management firm Weir Waste.

The vehicles, provided through MAN’s TrucksToGo initiative, are replacements in Weir Waste’s 50-strong fleet and will be operating throughout the West Midlands, Warwickshire and Worcestershire.

They are joining the fleet following on from the success of a MAN TGX 26.440 6×2 tractor unit which was brought in by Weir Waste managing director Danny Weir late last year.

He said: “We brought in the MAN TGX as an addition to our fleet and to help with our increasing workload late last year and like how it has performed.

“I have also spoken to a friend in the industry who runs MANs and I have had a look at those and asked his opinion of them. MAN have put together a good package.

“The price and service package made it an attractive proposition for Weir Waste and we will certainly be looking at the possibility of more MANs as we replace our fleet.”

MAN Sales Executive Jon-Paul Allenza added: “It is great feedback to hear that customers are turning to MAN through word of mouth and that other customers are so pleased with their vehicles that they are happy to make a recommendation.

“We supplied Weir Waste with the TGX at a time when there was a pressing need for one in the business and we are equally pleased that this has been so well received that Danny has chosen MAN again when he looked to replace three vehicles in his fleet.

“We look forward to doing more business with Weir Waste in the coming months.”
