New model is first brand new vehicle for firm based in Pontyclun
Leading commercial vehicle manufacturer MAN Truck & Bus UK has delivered the first MAN TGE in the UK to new customer GKC Electrical Limited.
The MAN TGE 3.180 is the first MAN van to take to the roads in the UK and will be helping GKC Electrical Ltd fulfill contracts nationwide. It has been supplied through Commercial Motors (Wales) Ltd in Newport, Gwent.
For company boss Gareth Coomber it is a double first as it is the first brand new vehicle he has bought.
Commercial Motors sales executive Daniel Manchip said: “I have known Gareth for a number of years and when I knew he was looking for a new vehicle I didn’t have to work too hard to sell in the benefits of the new MAN TGE.
“He bought in to the brand completely and the benefits, including the package offered by MAN Financial Services, meant that he was keen to place his order.
“It is prestigious to be the owner of the first MAN TGE to go on the road and I am proud to have played my part in the deal.”
Gareth added: “We like the MAN brand and were fortunate enough to take the new MAN TGE out on a demo run. That confirmed everything we had expected from the vehicle and the deal we arranged with MAN Financial Services made it th e obvious choice for us.
“We have been in business for four years, employ nine people and this is the first new vehicle we have bought, so it is a double first – we didn’t realise we would be the first to put the MAN TGE on the road in the UK.
“As a commercial and industrial electrical firm we have contracts nationwide and we were looking for a van that was big enough for the teams and the kit they need, and vehicle reliability is obviously essential.
“We are convinced we have got all that with the MAN TGE 3.180 and we are looking forward to putting it to the test.”
Nathan Black and Rhys Harrington of Dragon Signs, Cardiff, have also brought their creative expertise to the design of the striking vinyl wrap the MAN TGE will be sporting.
