RENAULT TRUCKS AND DENNIS EAGLE JOIN FORCES TO DISTRIBUTE A VEHICLE WITH A LOW-ENTRY CAB
Renault Trucks and Dennis Eagle Ltd have signed a partnership agreement for the distribution of a vehicle with a low-entry cab, to be named “Access”. Mainly designed for domestic refuse collection applications, it replaces the Puncher to complete the Renault Trucks Distribution range, joining the Premium Distribution and the Renault Midlum. It will be fitted with the DXi 7 Euro 5 engine and will first of all be sold in France before being gradually becoming available on other European markets.
Specialised in domestic refuse collection vehicles, the UK company Dennis Eagle has a unique wealth of expertise on the market for vehicles with low-entry cabs. Producing around 1,000 units a year, Dennis Eagle is one of the market's pivotal players. It was therefore quite natural for Renault Trucks to join forces with this manufacturer for the distribution of such a vehicle. Manufactured in the UK, and called the Access, the vehicle will initially be distributed and sold in France under the Renault Trucks brand and then gradually launched on other markets throughout Europe. Predominantly aimed at the refuse collection market, operators will be able to rely on the Renault Trucks network for all their maintenance and servicing needs.
Olivier Jacquier, Director of the Renault Trucks Distribution range, welcomes this partnership: "The choice of Dennis Eagle was determined by our desire to work with acknowledged specialists in vehicles with low-entry cabs and by the quality and reliability of their products. This means we can confidently look forward to sales of around 100 to 150 units a year."
This is confirmed by Norman Thoday, CEO of Dennis Eagle: "It is a partnership that recognizes the quality of Dennis Eagle vehicles and our expertise in the domestic refuse collection industry. It gives us a competitive edge over our rivals."
