Truck and Bus Wales and West, Shepton Mallet, has supplied Connor Construction (South West) Frome with six new Volvo FM 4x2 rigid tar sprayers.

The trucks, with Globetrotter cabs, I-Shift gearboxes and D11K, 11-litre engines that produce 330hp, feature bonded coat and joint sprayer bodies by The Phoenix Engineering Co. Connor Construction (South West), employs more than 100 staff and operates a large fleet of pavers, rollers and low loaders.

Ian Webb, company founder/director and contracts manger at Connor Construction (South West) said: “The new Volvos will accrue a relatively low annual mileage, but they will be work on a wide range of contracts. The sales process at Truck and Bus Wales and West was really good.

"We could not have done it without (truck sales executive) Andy Button’s detailed input throughout the process and I consider the procurement of our new Volvo FM11s as a real joint venture.”
