A Iveco S-Way purchase has been made by JT Matthews in response to increased demands of the roofing company.
The Wolverhampton-based operator has invested in a 26-tonne model for its fleet.
As a result, JT Matthews now has five trucks and another two commercial vehicles.
Furthermore, it ensured the vehicle was in pristine condition and survived its debut at the recent Truckfest.
The rigid truck offers a payload in the region of 14 tonnes.
In addition, it has a rear-steer system onboard, helping access to domestic development sites.
A number of other comfort and driver-friendly options are also featured on the vehicle.
Phil Barker, MD at JT Matthews, said the S-Way purchase underlined its commitment to the Iveco brand.
“We wanted to be one of the first on the road with the new S-WAY Rigid,” he stated.
“Specifically, we always want to give the best impression possible to our clients, as well as keeping our drivers happy.”
Continuing, Barker said the new truck enables drivers to do their job “as effectively and efficiently as possible”.
“Investing in a vehicle like this is something I am happy to do,” added Barker.
“Our drivers treat their trucks with respect and look after them, this is what our company prides itself on.”
Meanwhile, the MD said that the S-Way purchase would help the business manage an increase in customers.
The latest acquisition will be used to transport roofing materials to JT Matthews’ customers.
Therefore, it will be primarily operating within a 50-mile radius of its site in Bilston, West Midlands.
S-Way purchase success
Rob Spittle, MD, Guest Truck and Van, said he was delighted to support JT Matthews.
“The S-Way has already been a fantastic hit across our customer base and I am confident the team there will love it.”
His confidence is not misplaced.
For example, driver Brett is already smitten by his new steed.
“I have been driving trucks for more than two decades,” he explained.
“And, I have to say, from first impressions, this is going to prove itself to be the best.
