New company launches thanks to speedy truck delivery

Roofing and timber merchant RTB Roofing Supplies has launched with a new high-spec MAN TGM brick grab.

RTB Roofing Supplies was able to start trading quickly, thanks to MV Commercial supplying the truck in just two weeks.

Rainham-based RTB Roofing Supplies’ 6×2 26-tonne MAN incorporates a Hiab X-HIDUO 158 brick grab for easy loading and unloading of goods such as roof tiles, felt and slate. Equipped with a Euro VI engine, the truck can operate in clean air zones and incorporates a variety of driver comfort and safety features, including heated mirrors and a reversing camera system.

It is also equipped with a lane departure warning system and fall arrest protection, maximising protection when on the road or during unloading.

The truck was part of MV Commercial’s range of assets designed for builders’ merchants and construction companies from the supplier’s Ready to Go Stock of specialist vehicles.

Rob Slattery, director of RTB Roofing Supplies, said: “We wanted to get on the road as soon as possible, but manufacturers were quoting lead times of six months. [But] MV Commercial had what we needed, and it was ready for immediate delivery. They made the buying process quick and easy, and supplied us a great vehicle so we could start delivering across Essex.”

RTB Roofing Supplies has already put in another order with MV Commercials for a six-wheeler for carrying larger payloads.
