Reynolds Catering Services takes Isuzus in its fleet past the 100 mark
Reynolds Catering Supplies has added 37 new Isuzu trucks to its UK distribution fleet.
The Hertfordshire-based catering company has bought 12 Isuzu Forward 13.5-tonners as well as adding a further 25 Isuzu 7.5 tonne rigids to its 264-strong distribution fleet.
Reynolds currently has 102 Isuzus based across nine locations in the UK.
Steve White, head of fleet, said: “Isuzu trucks now account for a significant proportion of our distribution fleet, especially at 7.5 tonnes, as we have found that their on-the-road reliability is fantastic. The recent introduction of Isuzu’s new model at 13 tonnes coincided with our need to replace some incumbent older trucks from our fleet.
"On the back of our experience of the Isuzu 7.5 tonne performance over many years, we decided to move up the GVW category with Isuzu this time.”
Reynolds supplies fresh fruit and veg to wholesalers serving the foodservice and catering sectors.
