If you are the largest family-owned truck operator in Wales, the chances are that every truck manufacturer would like to sell you some trucks. Despite not having bought a Volvo Truck for more than fifteen years, it was the combination of the tenacity of the sales team at Thomas Hardie Commercials and the effectiveness of a seed truck that sees no fewer than 60 Volvo trucks arrive at Owens Group’s Manchester site. This represents a replacement of 90 per cent of the trucks operating out of Owen’s Carrington site in Greater Manchester with Volvo FH460 Globetrotter tractor units. The new…>
