Ready-mix concrete supplier chooses K 380 p6X4 based units for low operation costs with high reliability in operations on the UAE’s east coast
Renault Trucks has delivered 10 units of its K 380 trucks mounted with transit mixers to Sijimix, an established supplier of ready0mix concrete throughout the eastern UAE, which marks the truck maker’s first deal with the company.
Renault Trucks said it was the first choice for Sijimix, one of the UAE’s leading ready-mix concrete suppliers, due to the French brand’s “exceptional reliability and high quality” and the 10 new K 380 trucks will be used to transport concrete across the eastern part of the country.
Renault Trucks added that Sijimix’s decision to go for its trucks was also based on the trust that the units would lower operations costs with no compromise on quality and reliability.
Sijimix’s10 new Renault Trucks, supplied by United Diesel, the brand’s partner in Dubai, will expand the ready-mix concrete supplier’s existing fleet of over 140 units, and were set to start operations last month.
The K 380 P6x4 Rigid Chassis models, which meet Euro 5 emission standards and are equipped with a wide range of technological features as well as 9CBM transit concrete mixers, are set to optimise Sijimix’s local operations thanks to the K range’s functionality and fuel efficiency, said Renault Trucks.
The manufacturer added that the K 380 P6x4 Rigid Chassis models have a reputation for robustness, exceptional reliability and optimal fuel efficiency. They are equipped and designed to ensure maximum productivity and safety for their drivers, as the new models meet concrete suppliers’ operational needs. The K 380 models, in addition to their robust build, also reduce operational costs by minimising fuel consumption by combining a Euro 5 380hp engine, the Optidriver AT 2612F gearbox with automatic clutch, and a 445-litre fuel tank.
Sijimix’s new K 380 P6x4 trucks, which will mainly be operating from Fujairah, are also driver-centric as they feature numerous advanced technological and safety features. To minimise risk and increase safety, the trucks are equipped with EBS (Electronic Braking System), Hill Start Aid (HSA), Anti-Spin Regulation (ASR), Wheel Antilock Braking System (ABS) and Emergency Braking Assist - all of which assist drivers in tricky situations and provide comfort.
“We’re proud to have established a partnership with Renault Trucks and United Diesel in the UAE. Our deal came through numerous studies we’ve conducted, where Sijimix concluded that Renault Trucks are the best choice in terms of financial cost of operation and quality, and reliability of the product, which are ideally suited for our operations across Fujairah,” said Mahmoud Attourah, CEO of Sijimix.
Guillaume Zimmermann, commercial director of Renault Trucks Middle East, added: “Completing this first deal with Sijimix is another great step forward for the Renault Trucks team as we embark on another new partnership with a top local supplier. The quality of our trucks, along with their features, technological advancements and efficiency, in addition to United Diesel’s services and strong network, are key factors that contribute to the high demand for Renault Trucks in the UAE.”
According to Mokhles Makary, general manager of United Diesel, Renault Trucks offers “an excellent range of trucks that is perfectly suited to the varied requirements of our customers across the UAE”.
“In turn, we are focused on ensuring the optimum standards of customer service and financial support. Combined, this forms an unbeatable package, and this new deal with Sijimix demonstrates its appeal to the country’s leading businesses,” Makary added.
According to Renault Trucks, its deal with Sijimix is not only down to the quality of the trucks and the reputation of the Renault Trucks brand, but is also greatly due to United Diesel’s excellent customer support and aftersales services. Sijimix have been offered Site Drivers Training and Technical Training for staff and technicians beside other services, reflecting Renault Trucks’ and United Diesel’s objective to ensure optimum peace of mind for its customers.
