Kitchen, bedroom and bathroom furniture manufacturer J&J Ormerod has taken delivery of three Next Generation R-Series and one S-Series Scania from dealer West Pennine Trucks.

Following the Next Generation truck launch in September 2016, Lee Greenhalgh, director and co-owner at the firm based in Bacup, Lancashire, placed an order for the mix of R410 and S450 models.

He said: “I went to Sweden expecting the Next Generation Scania launch to impress and it did.

"I’d seen pictures and advertisements beforehand, but in person the quality of the cab was like nothing I’d seen before.”

J&J Ormerod has a fleet of 32 trucks - a combination of tractor units and rigids - 29 of which are Scanias.

“I’m not buying the next generation Scania to be one of the first to have them, I'm buying them so that my drivers have the most prestigious truck to do their job in,” Greenhalgh said.

"We want to buy the most efficient trucks on the market and the next generation Scania has made huge leaps forward with aerodynamics and engine efficiency.”
