Woodside Distribution, part of the Woodside Group based in Ballyclare, Co. Antrim, has recently purchased two FE 18 tonne curtainside rigids from Dennison Commercials Ltd, to join a fleet consisting of around 200 trucks group-wide.
The vehicles, which are the first new Volvos in the Woodside fleet for a number of years, have been purchased specifically to fulfil a new three year contract with SCA Hygiene Products Ltd, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of hygiene and personal care products, including well known brand names such as ‘Velvet’ and ‘Plenty’.
Woodsides will be carrying out the warehousing and distribution for SCA throughout all of Ireland.
The vehicles have been delivered with a five year Repair and Maintenance package in place, including an agreement whereby all servicing will be carried out in the evenings and the vehicles delivered back to Woodsides the same night, ready for operation first thing the following day. This highlights the flexibility of the Dennison Commercials after sales service.
Simon Woodside, Director, says: “Aside from the locality of the Dennison workshop and the convenience of having servicing carried out after our deliveries, the overall quality of the Volvo dealership and the reliability and the quality of the product have really impressed me.”
