Elgin-based Pinefield Glass, specialists in the manufacturer of glass and windows, has taken delivery of its first Euro-6 Renault Trucks’ Range D. The new 18-tonne Range D Wide is fitted with a Supertrucks body, transforming it into a specialist glass carrier. Supplied on a 5-year contract hire from BRS Ltd, which includes full repair & maintenance, tyres and Road Fund Licence, the vehicle delivers glass, windows and doors to joiners, builders, glaziers and the new-build market across Scotland.
Pinefield Glass, which has an 8-strong fleet of specialist vehicles, selected BRS and the Range D following previously favourable experiences with both service and product quality. Pinefield Glass’ Operations Director, John Archibald, explains why they opted for the Range D: “We’ve dealt with BRS before and really like their all-encompassing offering, particularly the way we can easily budget on a monthly basis as this helps enormously with the management of our vehicles. We’ve also received great customer service and the facility for vehicle servicing is close-by which helps to minimise any downtime.”
John continues: “We’ve had Renault Trucks’ vans before so we knew that we would be getting a quality and reliable vehicle. The new Range D was straightforward to body with specialist glass-carrying equipment. Our drivers are also finding the reduced turning circle, small overhang and compact cab allows them to access all areas easily, even the most challenging locations where every centimetre really counts.”
Pinefield Glass offers the most comprehensive range of PVCu glass, window and door products in the widest possible choice of styles, colours and finishes. Manufactured at its factory in Elgin, Moray, Pinefield aims to offer the highest standards of energy efficiency, durability and aesthetics including high performance double and triple glazed sealed units incorporating warm edge technology spacer bar. All window and door products are designed for quick, easy and accurate fitting to help reduce project times and costs.
