Leading textile reclaimer and processer, JMP Wilcox, has taken delivery of a Euro 5 Renault Premium Lander 450.26 drawbar with hook loader, through Renault Trucks Midlands. The truck joins a 40-strong mixed fleet.
The vehicle will be used for the collection and exchange of textile containers, mainly in London and along the South East Coast, from the company’s head office in Bilston, near Wolverhampton.
Dan Wilcox, Transport Manager, JMP Wilcox, says: “The Renault Lander is a well built, sturdy vehicle which suits our line of work. We felt that it was great value for money. We have a number of Renaults on our fleet and find that the service we get from Renault Trucks Midlands is fantastic. We are due to replace three of our crane tippers and will more than likely replace them with the Renault Premium Lander 280 as we would like to add more of this product to our fleet.”
JMP Wilcox was established in 1895 and is part of Wilcox Textile Reclaimers, a family owned group involved with the reclamation, processing and export of quality clothing to Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia. The company works closely with charities, local authorities and waste reclamation companies.
JMP Wilcox operates from its main depot in Bilston and has two other depots in Exeter and South Wales. Its fleet ranges from 3.5 tonne vans to a 44 tonne tractor unit and is replaced every three years. The company is the largest of its kind in the UK and one of the top 10 in Europe.
