Specialist scrap metal merchants and recyclers, steel stockholders and used vehicle parts suppliers T-Met of Northern Ireland has acquired its first New Generation TGS 8×4.
The new vehicle, supplied through MAN Truck & Bus UK’s Direct Sales function and prepared by RK Trucks Centre, will operate across all four T-Met sites in Armagh, Belfast, Coleraine and Campsie.
It is powered by MAN’s latest generation Euro6D compliant D26, straight-six, 12.4-litre engine, which generates 316 kW (430 hp) and drives both rear axles via MAN’s TipMatic 12-speed automatic transmission.
Featuring the NN day cab and bodied with a hookloader body with an automatic roll-over sheeting system, the new arrival is equipped with Alcoa alloy wheels.
T-Met’s new TGS is joined by a New Generation MAN TGM 4×2 18.250 skiploader.
Both new vehicles join the expanding fleet of 24 vehicles, mainly MAN, which includes TGL 12 tonners with tilt & slide car recovery bodies, TGM 18 tonne skiploaders, TGS 8×4 and 6×2 hook loaders and TGX 44 tonne tractors.
Established in 2000 T-Met has grown to become one of the largest recyclers and exporters of scrap metals in Northern Ireland.
Its four fully licensed and strategically located depots, are capable of collecting and processing both ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metals and End of Life vehicles (ELV’s).
Business founder and Managing Director, T-Met Ltd, Chris Traynor, said: “We have an established and trusted relationship with MAN and MAN’s local sales executive Julian Brown and John Donnelly from RK Trucks Centre.
“Over the years this relationship has morphed into more of a partnership and the level of wrap-around care and commitment we receive is second to none.”
