Adding Another Volvo to Our Waste Management Fleet

At Lanz Group, we are dedicated to investing in quality equipment. We maintain a top quality fleet of vehicles and regularly add to our fleet with new purchases.

October 2014 has been an exciting month for us as we took delivery of our first Volvo 8 x 4 FMX 410 tipper lorry. Our first Volvo was a 4 x 2 FLH 240 skip lorry delivered in November 2013 and the positive feedback from the driver and our workshop team persuaded us to look into the latest FMX 410 8 x 4 tipper and tipper grab when we were looking to update our fleet.

We agreed the terms for the purchase in late summer and we are looking forward to the second FMX tipper grab’s arrival towards the end of October.

Lanz Group Stays Committed to Investing in State of the Art Equipment, despite the Slow Economy

Despite the sluggish state of the economy, Lanz Group has stayed true to its commitment to the professional delivery of quality waste management services by investing in state of the art plant equipment at both its Colnbrook Depot and its Maidenhead Recycling Facility.

Lanz Group appreciates that new, modern equipment allow for efficiencies and increased environmental friendliness.

The Colnbrook-based waste management firm has acquired additional new plant machines: a Warrior 1400 Tracked 3-Way Screen, a new Volvo L70F Loading Shovel, and a New Volvo EC27C Mini excavator fitted with waste selector grab.

Always looking to improve its environmental practices, Lanz Group has invested in a new Scania 8-wheel Tipper and a new Scania 8-wheel Grab Lorry. Both of which have an automatic gearbox for improved fuel consumption enabling Lanz to reduce its carbon footprint.

Managing Director of Lanz Group, Douglas Hepsworth, shared his reasoning behind the investment in the firm:

“We always maintain a modern fleet and plant to continue to provide the high quality of services our customers have come to expect from Lanz Group.”
