Greener trucks

As part of its ongoing commitment to making its Inliten windows and doors ‘the greenest and most sustainable products on the market’, Camden has taken delivery of a number of new Volvo FH trucks from fleet partner, Dennison Commercials.  

“Volvo is the perfect fit for us,” said Stephen Clements, Camden’s transport manager.

“It’s an innovative company, constantly looking to keep ahead of the competition; it’s market leader; it’s committed to the highest levels of quality; and it has a great record in environmental sustainability – an ethos and set of values that reflect everything we do at Camden. The fact that the trucks also look fantastic is an added bonus!”

“We had the FH’s on trial, and during that time, the performance of both the trucks and Dennison’s was outstanding,” added Stephen.

“From a reliability perspective, the trucks were excellent – we didn’t lose a single day’s productivity from reliability issues. But the big bonus for us is the fuel efficiency coupled with a huge reduction in our CO2 emissions.

“Last year, we delivered over 750,000 window and door units to trade customers the length and breadth of Britain, from Inverness to Penzance. This year, that figure will be over 1 million units. With a five day turnaround promise, fleet reliability is huge to us, and our customers put their confidence in us to deliver on time, every time. In Dennison’s we have a partner who works closely with us to help us keep that promise. The level and quality of their after sales service was a major factor in the decision to go with Volvo.”

“The new trucks are liveried in Camden’s striking green and black colour scheme – a colour scheme which reflects our total commitment to sustainability. Thanks to our unique in-house recycling and co-extrusion capabilities, the market leading Inliten window and door range boasts an 80% recycled content, whilst still maintaining a 100% virgin skin. That end to end sustainability cycle is something that nobody else can offer, and saves up to 100 tonnes of waste from going to landfill every week! The new trucks will add even further to that environmental commitment.”
