Wales Environmental has taken delivery of three Mercedes-Bens Sprinters, its first Euro 6 vans.
Liquid waste management and drainage specialist acquired the vehicles from the Cardiff branch of Euro Commercials.
Like their predecessor, all are Long-bodied, high-roofed models and the subject of cost-effective CharterWay contract hire agreements with Mercedes-Benz Financial Services. One is a second 5.0-tonne 516 CDI; the other two are 3.5-tonne 314 CDIs.
Wales Environmental runs 40 vans across its various locations, nine of which are Sprinters – prior to embarking on its new relationship with Euro Commercials, the company had sourced its Mercedes-Benz vehicles from another provider.
John Jones, Wales Environmental transport manager, said: “We’re now choosing the Sprinter for its reliability and durability – experience has proved that even with 300,000 miles and more on the clock, the engines just keep on going and you don’t get body components falling off, as you would with other makes of van. The Sprinter is equally popular with our operatives, who appreciate its comfort and reassuring array of safety systems.”
