ASH WASTE SERVICES EXPANDS FLEET
ASH Waste Services has taken delivery of six new refuse collection vehicles all featuring Olympus 27 wide bodies from Dennis Eagle. Supplied on a variety of chassis, the vehicles are fitted with OmniTRADE bin lifts, as well as Vehicle Data Hub (VDH) and Radio Frequency Identification (RFiD) Dynamic Weighing systems from Terberg Matec UK.
Based in Wrexham, family-owned ASH Waste Services has an expanding customer base of over 6,000 companies throughout the North West, North Wales, Cheshire, Staffordshire and the Midlands. Clients range from sole traders to large multi-national corporations, and the company has an extensive fleet of vehicles to assist with waste and recycling collections.
Previously, its fleet consisted entirely of competitor products. However, when the time came to invest in new models earlier this year, ASH Waste Services took the decision to opt for a complete vehicle solution that offered a one-stop-shop for procurement and aftersales requirements, as Transport Manager Phil Mottershead explains:
“Due to the expanding size of our fleet, we decided that the time was right to introduce some variety in the form of other makes and models of equipment. We met with Dennis Eagle and Terberg Matec UK to discuss our requirements. They suggested that we should try the combination of an Olympus body with an OmniTRADE bin lift, so we visited the company’s Warwick headquarters for a site tour.
“We were happy with what we saw and subsequently placed an order for two vehicles. Following this we landed a package of new work and ordered a further four vehicles to help support this.
“All vehicles received are now in service, and indications show that they are working well. The bin lifts and bodies offer exceptional performance and payload, while the weighing systems are enabling us to gather all the relevant data for our pay by weight collection service so we can bill our customers and ensure we continue to offer maximum value for money.”
Adam Robins, Regional Sales Manager at Dennis Eagle, comments: “Our bodies are designed to integrate seamlessly with Terberg bin lifts, offering a solution that provides optimum performance and efficiency, as well as the benefit of a single point of contact for all related aftersales requirements.
“We’re pleased to have been given the opportunity to supply Ash Waste with our products and look forward to working with the team going forward.”
