As part of Quinn Building Products’ Fleet and Mobile Plant Replenishment Programme, Q1 2020 saw the arrival of a number of new additions to the fleet.
The company took delivery of five new Feldbinder triaxle cement tankers this year for use in Quinn Cement. In operation since January, the new tankers have been paired up with tractor units purchased in the second half of 2019. The tractor units have all been fitted with truck mounted blowers, which are lighter and more efficient than traditional tank mounted equipment. The combined trucks and trailers have performed well so far, providing a generous weight saving over traditional tank mounted blowers, whilst at the same time reducing the company’s environmental impact.
Q1 2020 also saw the arrival of two new Kelberg tipping trailers, which are also used in Quinn Cement’s operations, for the hauling of raw materials. The tippers are fitted with automatic tail doors and rollover covers to help aid driver safety.
Quinn’s Fleet Replenishment Programme involves huge investment to replace all older vehicles in the fleet with upgraded new vehicles, therefore reducing environmental impact, providing greater efficiencies and ensuring increasing demands are met. The Programme has been ongoing since 2015 and has included the purchase of over 100 new vehicles and plant machinery to date.
