Lyreco is supporting its UK office supplies operation with the addition of 172 Renault Master panel vans.
Lyreco, which operates in 42 countries across four continents, will use the Renault Master vans in the delivery of its 10,000-plus office and workplace-based products to its clients nationwide.
The latest vehicles were chosen after Lyreco engaged ERA Fleet Cost Management to manage the tender amongst manufacturers and suppliers.
The Renault Masters replace vehicles from another brand and won the tender based on their whole life costs, payload and the reliability of the other Renault vehicles that Lyreco operates.
Offering a maximum payload of 1,530kg from the factory, Lyreco’s Renault Masters have been supplied in (LM35) Long wheelbase, medium roof specification.
All feature an efficient 135hp 2.3-litre turbodiesel engine and front-wheel drive, optimising the amount of load space that Lyreco has available.
The order was handled for Lyreco by ERA Fleet Cost Management, with the vehicles leased through Fraikin.
Nick Dacey, logistics director, Lyreco, said: “Although we have a long relationship with Renault, we still like to re-evaluate our fleet on a regular basis and, once again, the Renault Master has proved to be ahead of its rivals and the ideal fit for our requirements."
Nick Tame, Sales Director, Groupe Renault UK, said: “With Lyreco making 1,000s of deliveries a week, its vehicles must be exceptionally durable, efficient, comfortable and reliable, and we are very pleased that they have found the Renault Master to be the quality product that they demand. With the Renault Master, Lyreco enjoys the peace of mind that they have chosen a vehicle that has made a major contribution to Renault being the best-selling LCV brand in Europe for the 18th consecutive year.”
