Engineering group Cappagh has ordered a new fleet of 7.5 tonne Fuso Canter tippers.
Cappagh, which last year celebrated its 40th anniversary, has taken delivery from Rygor’s Heathrow branch of 20 Canter 7C15s. All are on utilities duties and used mainly by tarmac gangs.
Plant manager John Gormley said: “These vehicles are used to carry out utility work throughout the Greater London area. They transport debris away from site, while also bringing in tarmac and tools to complete the job.”
He added: “The Canter is not too big, so relatively easy to manoeuvre in congested areas. And at 3,900 kg it will carry about half a tonne more than we’d get on a conventional 7.5-tonner, which represents a big ‘win’ in terms of productivity.”
Rygor is also responsible for sales and support of the light truck range. It took back 15 older Canters in part exchange, but Cappagh is also still running another 10 Canters which it purchased in 2012.
“Rygor have been extremely helpful,” continued Mr Gormley. “We first worked with them when they helped resolve one or two warranty issues we were having with our oldest Canters, which dated back to 2010. Their efficient sales service, coupled with the back-up we’ve received from the after sales team, was key to our decision to order these latest vehicles from Rygor.”
Cappagh will be maintaining its new Canters in-house, but relies on Rygor for regular parts deliveries and warranty support.
