Specialist construction company, Setanta Construction, have invested in two new Mercedes-Benz Vitos.
Co-Directors of Castledawson-based Setanta Construction, Niall and Mark Gribbin are both now running New Vito 114 BlueTECs.
Supplied by Newtownabbey dealer Mercedes-Benz Truck & Van (NI) they have replaced a pair of older Vito models, each of which provided 10 years and 200,000 miles of service.
Mark Gribbin said: “Those vans were superbly reliable, we worked them very hard and they never gave us any problems.
“As Directors, though, Niall and I can’t be driving round in beat-up old vans: we need to present a smart, professional image.
“Yet we’re both very ‘hands on’ too, so we have to be able to throw our tools in the back and drive onto building sites as well.
“The New Vito meets both these requirements perfectly.”
He continued: “We considered a range of options from rival manufacturers, including crew-cabbed pick-up trucks, but nothing came close to the combination of comfort, equipment level and practicality offered by the Vito.
“When we factored in the proven reliability, and the high quality of service we receive from Mercedes-Benz Truck & Van (NI), there was really only one option.”
