MAN Truck and Bus delivers ‘UK first’ curtain side TGE to Duncan Reeds

Duncan Reed MAN TGE

MAN Truck & Bus UK has delivered the first MAN TGE curtain side in the UK to Duncan Reeds.  

The MAN TGE 3.140 4X2F long wheelbase, single cab Chassis, with a curtain side body fitted by Transport Enterprises, is the first curtain side van to take to the roads in the UK.

When Duncan Reeds director Andy Bilton (pictured) heard a MAN van was being introduced to the UK it was a must buy for his company.

Bilton said: “We currently have a small fleet of MAN trucks, one based at our northern office in Manchester and the other two at our Sussex base and we have always championed MAN as a brand.

“I haven’t driven a TGE yet, but I know based on my experience with MAN it will deliver. The deal we arranged with MAN Financial Services made it the obvious choice for us.

“This TGE will be a replacement van and will be put to work specifically in city deliveries where HGV access can be difficult.

“I’m excited to get behind the wheel and try it out for myself as it has received great reviews. We are looking forward to putting it to the test.”

MAN Truck and Bus UK’s sales executive Simon Ward said: “It’s exciting to see the MAN TGE sales well underway. This vehicle is the first of its kind to be out on the UK roads.

“Duncan Reeds have been a valued customer of ours for a number of years and we’re delighted to see this vehicle delivered to them.

“I am proud to have played my part in this sale and look forward to seeing this vehicle out on the road.”
