The UAE-based concrete supplier, Ocean Readymix & Precast has become the first company in the Gulf to take delivery of Renault Trucks' new 8x4 Chassis model with a transit mixer capacity of 14 cu/m
The vehicles are being provided by Renault Trucks’ UAE-based importer Al Masaood, one of the largest integrated industrial, commercial and service organisations in the Middle East.
In total, Ocean Readymix & Precast has received five units of Renault Trucks' K440 P8x4 model, which will be used by the company to service its projects and customers in its home city of Al Ain. With a gross vehicle weight of 50 tonnes, the 8x4 Chassis version is the ideal model to meet the company's specific operational requirements. At the same time, the availability of a preventive maintenance service contract and reliable after-sales support provided added appeal.
The K range models are equipped with an Optidriver manual gearbox with automated gearshifting, as well as Renault Trucks' unique Optibrake exhaust braking system which, with a power rating of 300kW, promotes driver safety. Additional selling points include hill-start aid, wheel anti-slip regulation (ASR), anti-lock braking system (ABS), emergency braking assist (AFU) and an electronic parking brake (EPB).
Eyad Ibrahim Dukhan, managing director of Ocean Readymix & Precast, commented, “Working with Renault Trucks for the very first time to bring this unique deal to light has been an extremely positive experience. Not only have we been able to collaborate closely to introduce the largest concrete mixer yet to the region, but the finance scheme offered by the brand ensures maximum flexibility for us as a business.”
Mohamed El Zeftawi, general manager of Al Masaood Commercial Vehicles & Equipment, added, “This collaboration is another testament to the industry's trust in our capability to deliver high-performing products and complete solutions according to the globally recognised standards.”
Commercial director of Renault Trucks Middle East Guillaume Zimmermann, commented, “Complemented by the peace of mind and first-class customer service offered by our local partner, Al Masaood Commercial Vehicles & Equipment, the K model is the perfect working tool for customers around the UAE and wider Gulf region.”
