PPC Purchases Environmentally Friendly Fleet

AS part of THE PREPARATION GROUP’s procurement policy to reduce the environmental impact of products and services whilst achieving best value, it has purchased a new fleet of 7.5 tonne Fuso Canter Trucks.
The new vehicles, carrying a payload of up to 1,015kg more than competing trucks, are used to transport company’s surface preparation, removal and finishing equipment to and from sites all over the UK.
The vehicles are powered by low-emission 180hp 3-litre diesel engines meeting the latest Euro 6 emissions standards. They include on-board generators to power the surface preparation equipment used. One truck is fitted with a ramp for driving PPC’s ride on multi-stripping and shotblasting machines straight on and off the vehicle.
Says group md, Tracey Glew, ‘The new fleet is designed to be self contained so that we can arrive on site ready to go. Our sustainable innovation policy focuses on energy efficiency, waste management, pollution prevention and efficient design. The Canter range of vehicles enjoys an excellent reputation for reliability and durability and has competitive fuel consumption figures.’ T: 01522 561460
