Brick manufacturers Wienerberger have taken delivery of a new fleet of eco-friendly vehicles to deliver their bricks to builders merchant and other customers around the UK.
The vehicles, from Barry Proctor Services come with a host of ‘green’ features – all are ‘Euro 5’ compliant which means they are approved to go into the inner M25 and London Emission Zones and feature AdBlue which destroys harmful particles before they enter the atmosphere, reducing emissions of oxides of nitrogen from the exhaust of diesel vehicles.
In addition, the lorries each feature an on-board computer which detects when the vehicle runs out of AdBlue solution, which consequently reduces impact on the environment.
Mark Morris, sales and marketing director for Wienerberger UK said: “At Wienerberger we want to make sure that every aspect of the business is as eco-friendly as possible, and this extends to the distribution of our bricks as we want to ensure that whatever distance our bricks travel, they have the minimum impact on the environment.
“We insist that our vehicles are no more than four years old which means they all comply to Euro 3 or 4 standard, but now with Euro5, they are greener than ever.”
Barry Proctor from Barry Proctor Services, is delighted to be helping Wienerberger work in a more sustainable way. He adds: “Not many distribution companies offer vehicles which comply with Euro5 standards so Wienerberger is ahead of its time in terms of greener emissions. The new facilities in these vehicles mean that the emissions are purified which means they are probably cleaner than the air we breathe.”
Wienerberger are the largest brick manufacturer in the world and the third largest in the UK market.
