Mercedes-Benz MBNI Truck & Van has made further in-roads into the fleet of high-profile civil engineering contractor FP McCann by delivering another two vans.
The precast concrete manufacturer has now purchased five Sprinters from the Northern Ireland-based dealer last year.
FP McCann has extensive quarrying and construction interests, and supplies precast and ready-mixed concrete products for a wide range of applications. It operates from headquarters in Magherafelt, and a dozen precast manufacturing depots located nationwide.
“The Dealer’s approach has been impressively professional from the outset,” said FP McCann’s regional quarry and transport manager Chris McCloy.
“Our Sprinter vans are engineered to a very high standard and look to be every bit as rugged and well-built as our muscular Mercedes-Benz tippers. That’s important because our vans have to work on some pretty rough quarry sites.”
Like their predecessors, FP McCann’s latest vans are 3.5-tonne Sprinter 316 CDI Medium models with 163PS, 2.1-litre engines. Both have factory-fitted towbars and uprated 3.5-tonne towing capacities, enabling them to pull plant and other site equipment on trailers.
Like all Mercedes-Benz vans, FP McCann’s Sprinters came with three-year, unlimited mileage warranties and MobiloVan cover, which includes free, 24-hour emergency roadside assistance.
McCloy concluded: “MBNI worked very hard to gain a foothold in our fleet and since doing so has continued to provide a very high level of service. Our Mercedes-Benz vehicles, meanwhile, are proving to be ideally suited to our intensive application.”
