RB: What is your favourite holiday destination?

SM: Tinkering in the garage or cooking.

RB: How would you encourage more young people into the industry?
SM: Continue to develop apprenticeships and high quality training.
RB: What is the outlook for your sector of the market over the next 12 months?
SM: That the construction industry is still strong, showing growth, and generally truck sales reflect this. I’m confident we will continue to thrive. [This year Munton helped supply new customer Route Logistics with six new TGXs, as well as established MAN buyer, Cheetah Couriers and Logistics, with a TGX PerformanceLine].
RB: What makes MAN Truck & Bus different from everyone else?
SM: We are the only manufacturer to employ a direct sales force, and with the new TGE van we now offer the full weight range from 3 tonnes upwards.
