Mitchells drives forward with £750,000 investment
Mitchells of Mansfield has invested £750,000 in new Renault trucks, as part of ongoing growth across the business.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary next year and based in Brierley Park Industrial Estate in Sutton-in-Ashfield, the palletised freight distribution company has seen tremendous growth over the last year. As a result, Mitchells has been required to upgrade 10 existing trucks as part of its long-term growth plans.
The investment in trucks will help meet the growing demand of Mitchells’ new and existing customers across Nottinghamshire and a variety of sectors, while ensuring that the maintenance cost from wear and tear of the fleet remains low. This will keep its drivers on the road for longer, providing an efficient and high level of service for customers with same day or overnight delivery.
The family-run company, which currently has 75 employees and owns a fleet of 38 purchased the 10 new trucks from East Midlands Renault Trucks distributor, RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV). With significant growth plans in place, Mitchells hopes to further upgrade additional trucks with RHCV over the next year.
Andrew Mitchell, Managing Director at Mitchells of Mansfield said: “We are dedicated to ensuring each of our customers receive a first-class service and as a result of a strong year of growth, we needed to upgrade our existing trucks to ensure we carried out this service efficiently and continue to grow across all markets.
“We chose to purchase Renault trucks for the first time, as the package and deal from RHCV really stood out to us and we were blown away by the brilliant service. We are growing all the time and will eventually upgrade the rest of the fleet this year to Renault trucks – returning to purchase from RHCV when we do.”
RHCV’s sale follows a successful year for the company who will be celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. As well as winning a hat-trick of awards including Dealer of the Year at the annual Renault Trucks Dealer Awards earlier this year.
Paul Pearson, Commercial Director at RHCV said: “We are delighted to have worked with Mitchells of Mansfield to help them upgrade and improve their service offering. We are looking forward to working with them further in the near future, as part of the company’s significant growth.”
Renault Trucks distributor RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) has been selling, leasing servicing and repairing heavy (HGV) and light commercial (LCV) vehicles across the East Midlands for four decades. The company employs 80 staff across three sites in the East Midlands – in Nottingham, Cossington (Leics) and Alfreton (Derbys).//php comments_template( '', true ); ?>
