Renault Trucks has announced another fleet deal for the delivery of ten heavy-duty construction trucks to one of the UAE’s leading concrete suppliers, Oryx Mix, to handle concrete industry requirements across the Northern Emirates.
The ten Renault Trucks are additional to the company’s existing fleet of 240 units. The K 440 P8x4 Rigid Chassis models, equipped with 12 CBM transit concrete mixers and supplied by Renault Trucks’ partner United Diesel, will help to optimise local operations as a result of their functionality and fuel efficiency. Oryx Mix will use the trucks to transport ready mix concrete across the emirates of Dubai, Fujairah and Ras Al Khaimah.
Oryx Mix’s new models will ease operations and increase efficiency, and at the same time deliver the highest levels of safety for its drivers. Every detail of the K 440 model is designed to meet the needs of Oryx Mix’s operations, by optimising business activities and productivity and maximising profitability. The combination of an Optidriver AT 2612F gearbox, with an automatic clutch, a 445-litre tank and a 440hp engine reduces operations costs through the minimisation of fuel consumption.
The driver-centric features of the truck are complemented by the high quality and robust nature of its construction, as well as the range of advanced safety features available. Features such as EBS (Electronic Braking System), Hill Start Aid (HSA), Anti-Spin Regulation (ASR), Wheel Antilock Braking System (ABS) and Emergency Braking Assist, ensure that the drivers are safe and comfortable behind the wheel during operations.
Peace of mind is not only achieved by the wide set of safety features offered but also the high level of aftersales services. A three-year comprehensive service contract is offered, reassuring customers of the continuity of outstanding quality that comes as a standard from Renault Trucks.
Mr. Mohamed Abdullah Al Faihan, deputy C.E.O. of Oryx Mix, commented: “These new Renault Trucks will add immense value to our operations, as proven during the testing phase. The trucks, which feature a comfortable cabin for the driver and holistic safety features, will be used for concrete mixing and further operations by Oryx Mix. In particular, the aftersales offers and the support of the aftersales personnel paved the way for us to choose Renault Trucks.”
Commercial Director of Renault Trucks Middle East, Mr. Guillaume Zimmermann, said: “This partnership with Oryx Mix represents another major milestone in the growth of the brand in the region. Once again, we are proud to see a major national operator recognising the reliability, efficiency and safety of the Renault Trucks, and our consistently high-quality service, by trusting us. I want to thank again the Oryx Mix team for their confidence and look forward to a long term relationship”
Mike Mokhles Makary, General Manager of United Diesel, commented: “United Diesel is delighted to be a strategic business partner for Oryx Mix, a leader in the concrete mixing industry. Our success in securing this latest deal with a well-renowned, well-established local company, which is one of the market leaders in the concrete mixer industry, serves as testament to United Diesel’s continued commitment to ensuring the highest quality of aftersales services for our clients.
